Convelio today announces that it has been appointed as the Shipping Partner of Design Miami/ Basel (21 – 26 September 2021) taking place at the Messe Basel in Basel, Switzerland. Convelio provides digital solutions for the traditionally offline process of buying art – from concluding a sale to placing the design piece in your living room, offering an unrivalled service that is more transparent and efficient than ever before.

A core part of the partnership will see Convelio provide Design Miami/ Basel with a fully integrated API, facilitating quick and seamless sales of design for participating galleries and collectors through the fair’s online platform and therefore easing global access to the highlights of the international design world on display at the fair.

The process of organising logistics for shipping artworks post-sale has historically been opaque and highly inefficient, often taking several days to quote and book. Convelio’s automated platform enables shipping quotes to be completed in a matter of minutes. It is estimated that by using a platform such as this collectors are 30% more likely to complete a purchase, providing a clear commercial benefit to exhibitors at Design Miami/ Basel. Convelio’s API platform also enables buyers to track their purchases and monitor delivery dates and times, making fine art and design transport far more transparent and secure.

Convelio will continue the partnership with Design Miami/ Basel in December at their Miami fair.

Convelio’s CEO and Co-Founder Edouard Gouin said: “We are pleased to provide Design Miami/Basel and the participating exhibitors with our integrated API service through our role as Shipping Partner. Our ambition is to help exhibitors and the fair be as commercially successful as possible, as well as provide collectors and exhibitors with a transparent, efficient, secure and easy to use shipping process.”
