"West 10 Interactive Online Auctions"
1999-07-17 until 1999-07-17
West 10
Coventry, , UK United Kingdom

The Internet is becoming an essential tool in the worldwide trading of art, antiques and collectables. The growth seen over the past three years has been far greater than the industry expected and is predicted to continue to raise into the millenium, as the major figureheads in the art and auctions industry take steps to place their business online.

On the 10th May 1999 West 10 Interactive launched an auction site aimed at the smaller dealer and independent artist, enabling them to compete in this growing marketplace. Lots from our first auction include contemporary art offered by 20 professional artists based in the United Kingdom and Antiques and Collectables, offered by smaller dealers from all over the world. The site, although primarily a commercial site, is also designed to be used as an online resource for dealers and enthusiasts with details of collectors clubs, trade associations and events. The site is split into sections focusing on specific collecting groups. Each area of the site hosts specialist auctions and provides news and feature articles on events and fairs. Chat rooms and forums provide a location where collectors and dealers from all over the world can discuss their collections and hobbies. Every effort has been made to keep the costs of participation low. There are no fees for a standard auction listing. There is simply a vendor's commission charge of 10% on any sold items, providing a viable, alternative, trading place for artists and dealers, with easy and cost effective access to the global Internet marketplace. If you require any further information regarding Interactive Auctions or any of West 10's other Internet services, please do not hesitate to contact Sarah Peacock by telephone on +44 (0)1203 32 33 34, or +44 (0)7971 816 169, or by e-mail at sarah@west10.co.uk
