At the central exhibition, called Het Collectiegebouw Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen will reveal its plans for a new depository for storing and displaying art belonging to private collectors and others. There will also be a special symposium during Art Amsterdam on the relationship between museums and private and corporate collections. Moreover, some 50 international art collectors are being invited to pay a special VIP visit to Art Amsterdam, and sixty young prospective art collectors aged between 17 and 22 can take part in the Day for Beginner Art Collectors.
