Έχει επιλεγεί μια ομάδα συνεργατών που πιστεύουν στην ιδέα δημιουργίας μιας καινούριας Art Fair στην Ελλάδα, ιδέα που θα προσδώσει μια δυναμική ώθηση εμπορικού, πολιτισμικού και εκπαιδευτικού χαρακτήρα, εφόσον η Τέχνη και ο Πολιτισμός αποτελούν βασικά εργαλεία διάδοσης της γνώσης, οικονομικής ανάπτυξης, προβολής και επικοινωνίας. Ως ετήσιος θεσμός μπορεί να λειτουργήσει καταλυτικά και πολυδιάστατα, ενδυναμώνοντας τον διάλογο, την καλλιτεχνική κινητικότητα, τις προκλήσεις της καινοτομίας, τις καλλιτεχνικές γειτνιάσεις και ανταλλαγές και κυρίως την κατανόηση της διαφορετικότητας των πολιτισμικών φαινομένων.
