Simultaneously to the Ancient and Asian Art Fairs, ArtConnoisseurs organizes in Brussels a series of 25 top-notch lectures given by world renowned specialists about hot topics for collectors, scholars and art lovers.

In the charming historical center of Brussels, museum curators, experts, dealers and major collectors will gather for 5 days of exchange about art, science and beauty. Held at the MIM, the Musical Instruments Museum, one of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings in Brussels and at the prestigious Cercle de Lorraine Business Club, the conferences will gather an impressive panel of major experts of Egyptian, Chinese, Indian, Classical, Japanese, Roman, Greek, as well as Tibetan, Near Eastern and even Contemporary art who will feed 3 convivial and fascinating days of sharing, mingling and exchange.
