IAPN Executive Director, Peter Tompa was invited to attend a High level event where he was able to interact with European Commission officials as well as representatives of other CINOA[1] affiliated trade groups.

In late December, Mr. Tompa attended the first meeting of the European Commission's expert sub-group on “Dialogue with the Art Market" at the EC's headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.

His attendance at this month's follow-up meeting held in conjunction with the BRAFA Art Fair [2] in Brussels gave him the opportunity to join the event where Margaritis Schinas, Vice President of the European Commission for Promoting our European Way of Life [3] gave a talk. Tompa met with and spoke to the top EU bureaucrat on the issue, Georg Haeusler.

Tompa also attended a presentation given by keynote speaker and criminologist, Dr. Donna Yates, Ph.D. (D.E.) of Maastricht University where she is an Associate Professor in the department of Criminal Law and Criminology. Yates presented, Joint efforts towards shared goals: fostering an art market that works for all stakeholders.
