What our customers say
Ed VaizeyFormer Minister for Culture, United Kingdom
I’ve known the team at Vastari for years and am delighted they have decided to share the insights from their research with the world.
Having worked closely with museums and cultural institutions in the UK, I can see how important it is for them to understand the working practices of their international counterparts.

The Vastari Collector Report has enabled us to gain a valuable insight into the diversity and motivations of our client demographic, delightfully reassuring us that our global business is moving in the right direction with our activities and plans.
This has also challenged us to think about what a client looks for in their art handling storage provider, all so very important for an ever-changing and eco-aware art world.
