NetJets, the global leader in private aviation, and Christie’s, the world’s largest art business, today announced a new partnership that aligns the luxury brands and creates unique and exclusive opportunities for their clients. The new alliance between aviation and art begins with a private showing of the Hampton’s Exhibition on July 9th leading into the public exhibition July 10-12 sponsored by NetJets. The preview is open to a small group of art collectors and enthusiasts, providing an exclusive early viewing of pieces from the upcoming FIRST OPEN/NYC – summer edition of post-war and contemporary art.
“The association of NetJets to the art world is long-standing. We find a good deal of our customers have a passion for art so we’re constantly exploring opportunities to support their interests,” said Marybeth Jones, Vice President of Global Event and Strategic Alliances. “Our new partnership with Christie’s publicly aligns two of the most notable luxury brands and allows us to further enhance our customer experience offerings while introducing the NetJets way of flying to the Christie’s family.”
The Hampton’s Exhibition, sponsored by NetJets, will be held Friday, July 10 to Sunday, July 12 at the Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack.
