For those looking forward to 2018, there are big changes coming. Our colossal Main Tent will expand again, but by a mere 1,600 square feet to accommodate existing dealers who wish to expand their booths. Instead, our future growth will come from the addition of a new middle-to-high-end 22nd Fine Mineral & Gem Annex. This tent structure will be carpeted, just like the prestigious GJX Show. Indeed, the same contractor will erect identical type tents at both shows to the same level of quality and features. The only difference is that a booth in our new tent will cost 1/5 the daily cost as a GJX booth. Here are the important details about this new addition to the 22nd Street Show:
- January 25 - Feb 11, 2018 (18 days, which are the same dates as the Main Tent)
- 245 feet long x 100 feet wide with hard walls and a 3,200 square foot entry lobby
- 66 booths of which 62 are a spacious 12' x 20' (240 sq. feet)
- Prices vary according to location (please see the floor plan below)
- Price includes 1,000w electricity, pipe & drape booth dividers, and 24 hour security
- Limited to dealers offering only fine minerals, gemstones, and high-end jewelry
- Dealers are invited to share booths
- All dealers are required to use at least four glass showcases in their booth
- ATM, refreshments, information counter, and registration desk in the lobby
- Tucson dust will be controlled via carpeting, climate-control, and the single lobby entry
- 24-hour coverage by armed, uniformed, personable, and well-trained security officers
- Upscale portable restrooms as used at Professional Golf Association (PGA) events
- 100% controlled parking so that your customers can park near your venue
- Supported by a massive $150,000 international ad campaign
- We are the single most-attended show in the United States
- Free parking will be eliminated to better serve buyers versus "Lookie Lous"
New Dealers! Stay FREE at our preferred hotel, Country Inn & Suites (includes free breakfast) each and every year. Learn more! With free lodging, your daily cost to do the 22nd Street Show (in the Main Tent or the 22nd Fine Mineral & Gem Annex) is much less than that at hotel shows.
We will provide a FREE 19-day hotel stay (worth $3,600) to the first dealer who signs up for at least $10,000 in booth space in the 22nd Fine Mineral & Gem Annex and pays in full. This is a 1-time offer good for only the 2018 show, and only to the first qualified dealer who submits payment in full for $10,000 or more.
