HILLSBOROUGH ANTIQUES + ART + DESIGN SHOW
BENEFITING UNITED VETERANS SERVICES TO LAUNCH
IN NOVEMBER 2015
Dolphin Promotions – Fort Lauderdale
May 15, 2015
(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
