Why need for Specialized Conference on Protection & Insurance of Art, Artifacts, Art Galleries and Museum?
India is known worldwide for its culture, traditions, art and craft. Indian art has a profound historical relevance and rich cultural roots. People who visit India are left amazed by the country’s art and craft and like to visit various Indian Art Galleries and exhibitions to get good idea about the uniqueness of Indian art.

In recent years much of the investment returns and wealth growth of high net worth individuals have been due to the strategic diversification of their investments into a broad range of asset classes. Art, like gold is classed as a “real asset” and has proven in the past as a natural hedge against inflation.
