(San Mateo, CA) Dolphin Promotions is pleased to announce they have been selected by United

Veterans Services to be the new producers of the Hillsborough Antiques + Art + Design Show to be held

three times yearly at the San Mateo Event Center. Formerly known as the Hillsborough Antiques Show,

the event will benefit United Veterans Services. The dates for the coming year are November 6-8, 2015,

February 26-28, 2016, and April 29 to May 1, 2016.

The Hillsborough Antiques + Art + Design Show will feature more than 200 premier exhibitors from

across the U.S., Canada and Europe offering fine antique furniture, silver, paintings, bronzes, porcelain,

antique and estate jewelry, pottery, rare books, lighting, crystal, prints, rugs, textiles, posters, vintage

clothing and accessories representing all design movements from ancient through 20th century modern.

The newly re-branded show will present a considerably updated and more elegant experience for both

dealers and collectors. Visitors will arrive via a grand new decorated and landscaped entrance, and a

portion of the show will highlight furniture and decorative arts dealers in walled and papered booths

creating a collection of room-setting ateliers. Many fine, high quality dealers who have not participated

in the show for many years have committed to return, and the overall appearance and level of

merchandise at the show will be much improved. Returning recent dealers will also be present but the

layout of the show will be re-mastered to create a better experience for attendees.

“We are looking forward to coming back to the Bay Area to produce this well-established high-end

antiques, art and design show benefiting UVS. It is our intention to raise the level of this show in order

to bring in more serious collectors and buyers” said Rosemary Krieger, President of Dolphin Promotions,

the new show director.

The San Mateo Event Center is located at 1346 Saratoga Drive, San Mateo, CA 94403. The show hours

will be Friday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Weekend

admission is $10; good for return entry all three days. More information, including a list of participating

exhibitors, is available at www.hillsboroughantiquesartdesign.com or by contacting Dolphin Promotions
