DAC Concepts Miami Florida

Please I need to hear any experiences you have had with DAC Concepts Miami, Florida. I was approached and told that if I pay a fee of $350 I could exhibit a 10×10 inch artwork at Design+ at the Hyatt Regency but there is no mention of Design+ on the Internet and when I went into the webpage of the hotel there is no mention of this event either. The person who contacted me was Maria Apostolidis and she said they sell art online and also in Dubai, London, Berlin and China. Maria Apostolidis Founder | Owner d | a…
