Art isn’t the only thing collectors gorged themselves upon at TEFAF in Maastricht last week. During the preview, 10,000 visitors passed through the halls. The organizers made sure they were well lubricated with food and wine amounting to half a bottle of wine or Champagne per person and 15 canapés, according to TEFAF’s own press release:
Refreshments were served throughout the preview, which lasted nine hours. 100 cooks prepared more than 150,000 canapés, which were served by 400 waiting staff. 100,000 glasses were used to serve drinks from 1,800 bottles of champagne, 3,500 bottles of wine as well as beer and soft drinks.
