BRAFA 2020 ends with a bang


BRAFA 2020 ends with a bang: a total of € 326,000 reached at the charity auction of 5 segments of the Berlin Wall, plus a record number of visitors and increased sales!

The closing event of Brafa 2020, the charity auction of five original segments of the Berlin Wall, organised to mark the fair’s 65th edition, was a resounding success. With €326,000 gained from the sale, the organisers’ expectations were proved far below the mark:

We hoped to reach €25,000 for each segment and we reached figures well above that for each one. The bidding was tight, right up to the closure of the sale. We received bids from hopeful buyers in Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and even from a University in the USA

said Harold t’Kint de Roodenbeke, the fair’s President.

The five beneficiaries of the sale (active in the domains of cancer research, the integration of people with disabilities, and cultural heritage) will receive, respectively: Hart voor Handicap €60,000; CAP48 €62,000; Musée Art & Histoire €64,000; Télévie – FNRS €70,000 and Kom op tegen Kanker €70,000.

The five segments will now make their way to their new owners in Belgium and beyond.

New visitor number record

Another figure to note is the visitor number recorded at the end of Brafa 2020: 68,000 (in comparison to 66,000 in 2019)! This record is the more remarkable because the 2020 edition was one day shorter than those that preceded it, when the fair was open to the public from Sunday to Sunday.
