Located in the International Technology Park in Bangalore, a major IT hub in India’s Silicon Valley, the new premises will provide a superior level of service and support to Christie’s clients and partners in India, which clearly reflects Christie’s ongoing commitment to the Indian market, which has seen tremendous growth and potential in recent years.
