The exhibition lasts for five days with thousands in attendance. Make sure your business trip goes smoothly with GETA ltd by your side to help you with your search for accommodation.

This allows you to be one effortless commute away from the heart of ARCO. While art exhibitions are the norm, there is so much more to this event – professional meetings, forums, a course that is dedicated to sharing insight into the collecting world and a series showing the faces behind the art.
