Thank you!

ARC is very proud to be the host organization for the
10th European Registrars Conference 2016! ERC 2016 provides
an excellent opportunity to meet hundreds of international experts from
the museum field face-to-face and to lay a cornerstone for mutual trust
and successful business relations.
There's no doubt about it; we cannot organise and realise
a conference of this size without the helps of sponsors!

For this reason, we would like to express our deepest thanks and gratitude
to our sponsors, supporters and friends.




Dear participants,
accurART proudly supports this year’s European Registrars Conference.
We are a leading independent and specialized fine art insurance broker, and feel that events like the ERC are important platforms to exchange ideas and learn from one another’s strengths. Seeing that we communicate with each other so often in our day-to-day business, we are very much looking forward to meeting you in person during the conference.

Vienna is an unsurpassable location for this year’s event, as it offers a multitude of world-class cultural institutions, along with a fascinating and rich history. Our sincere thanks goes to the organizing group that volunteered their time to make this outstanding event possible.
We wish you an inspiring, collaborative and, most importantly, enjoyable conference!

Dear participants,
we are delighted to support the ERC this year.
In today's globalized and fast moving art world, it is essential to set the highest standards in the organization of fine art exhibitions. Despite the great professionalism in everyday loan transfer, there are moments in which unforeseen circumstances arise. Sharing lessons learnt as well as close and frequent exchange between parties involved is of great importance.
In the past years the ERC has been established as an important forum for information, discussions and networking. The ERGO Insurance Group, one of the leading insurers in Germany and Europe, is very proud to be part of this event.  
We are very much looking forward to meeting you.
Best regards,
Julia Barbara Ries & the ERGO Fine Art Insurance team
