Ronati partnered with CINOA to launch the inaugural Guide to Trade Associations for Sellers of Art, Vintage and Antiques, now live on and available free of charge.

The guide was created for dealers as well as gallerists, auctioneers and enthusiasts. It includes a diverse array of associations, both international and national (nineteen countries are represented).

For each association, the guide provides a dedicated page including scope, description, mission statement, benefits of membership and applicable links.

Ronati carefully curated this guide in partnership with CINOA, the umbrella organization representing the international art and antiques trade (Confédération Internationale des Négociants en Oeuvres d’Art).

Founded in 1935, today CINOA is comprised of thirty member associations in twenty-two countries, representing 5,000+ dealers.

Being part of an association offers dealers a platform rooted in tradition and historical principles. Merchants as far back as the 11th century recognized the importance of the collective strength that a guild brings.

Today’s trade associations serve as a cohesive force for dealers, providing support, fostering collaboration, and advocating for favorable conditions.

As stated by Mr. Howell, CINOA President:

“Working with Ronati, we’ve done our best to make the job of navigating our associations as easy as possible. We encourage you to review the guide, find the community that most aligns with your field or specialty, and apply.”

This guide is not only for dealers: buyers benefit from knowing the most reputable associations that represent their field of interest.

In addition, the guide includes a special addendum from CINOA – a call to action for all art and antiques enthusiasts, and an invitation to become part of a global community dedicated to preserving our shared cultural heritage.

“Join us as we champion the cause of art and antique preservation, and together, we can ensure that these treasures continue to inspire and enrich generations to come.”
