Convelio partners with The Armory Show – A new fair experience

As physical art events begin to return to the cultural landscape, Convelio is proud to announce that it has been appointed as the Official Shipping Partner of the Armory Show (9-12 September 2021) taking place at the Javits Center in New York City.

Essential to New York's artistic landscape, The Armory Show has hosted the world’s leading galleries and connected collectors and exhibitors with museums and institutions since 1994. With over 54,000 visitors, the New York's Art Fair kicks off the city's fall arts season and functions as a meeting point for the most influential dealers, collectors, curators, artists and enthusiasts.

The partnership with Convelio celebrates a new fair experience for both physical and digital fair visitors, enabling a seamless post-purchase shipping solution for all buyers for the first time at this scale. Our dedicated on-site team is available to facilitate quotes and bookings for exhibitors or collectors, and host those looking to explore more complex or long-term shipping needs. Convelio’s automated platform enables shipping quotes to be completed in a matter of minutes, removing the costly labor hours that are normally associated with the process. It also enables buyers to track their purchases and monitor delivery dates and times, making fine art transport far more transparent and secure.

The partnership will bring these benefits to over 200 exhibiting dealers – both at the fair and online. Armory Online has been developed by Artlogic, the industry’s leading website specialists. The site hosts Convelio’s Widget that can be activated by each exhibitor so as to provide expedited shipping quotes on each artwork page, to over 80 destinations worldwide, increasing international reach for buyers and sellers alike.

By offering bespoke logistics and collection management services, we can address each client’s shipping needs. From custom packing solutions to exceptional customs procedures, and tailored road, air and sea freight, Convelio ensures frictionless delivery around the world. This partnership is another step towards harmonizing the fair experience – with Convelio being able to support across every step from initial interest to final delivery.

Celebrating its first anniversary since opening its first US office in New York, Convelio has undergone significant global growth in the past year. Partnering with New York’s most iconic art fair is a testament not only to Convelio’s strengthening position in the US market, but also to The Armory Show’s commitment to offer unsurpassed services to its exhibitors and collectors. Beyond global growth, this is a unique crossroad of expertise and innovation.

Convelio’s CEO and Co-Founder Edouard Gouin: “We are thrilled to be able to provide support for Armory Online powered by Artlogic. Our mission to innovate in art logistics aligns closely with the fair’s objectives to enhance the collector’s experience, as well as Artlogic’s goal of building transformative tech tools for the industry.”
