The First edition of Summa Art Fair attracted more than 10,000 visitors and was a commercial success. Summa was held on September 19th to the 22nd. It gathered 64 galleries in the hall 16 of Matadero, a former slaugherhouse in the Arganzuela district of Madrid, which has been converted to a lively arts centre. Summa aroused a great interest among national and international collectors as well as the genetral public. Most of the exhibitors were very satisfied with the sales and made a lot of national and international contacts. They were curious about how a new art fair could be successfully run at the beginning of the arts season in Madrid. The results show the answer is clearly possitive!
