Purchased by its Social Media rival Facebook in 2012, Instagram has grown from an audience of just 30 million to over 400 million users worldwide in only four years.
What sets Instagram apart from rivals Facebook and Twitter is the ability to host high resolution images and high quality video, making it the perfect platform on which to show case fine art, design and objects of outstanding beauty.
Many leading dealers are now using the platform to engage with new audiences, share beautiful imagery and even generate direct sales. So join us for an afternoon exploring the benefits of Instagram and how it can become a powerful selling tool for your business.
