Introducing the new upscale SHOWCASE tent at the Tucson 22nd Street Mineral, Fossil, Gem & Jewelry Show. This new venue will be sited immediately south of the familiar 750-foot long Main Tent, but the SHOWCASE tent will be a higher-end experience for buyers and sellers. It will feature wall-to-wall carpeting, full climate-control, larger booths, custom lighting, modular walls and a spacious lobby with an impressive Aerolite Meteorites + Dinosaur Brokers special exhibit. The intent is to create a space with heightened elegance in a quieter, less-rushed environment. This is the perfect new home for mineral, gem, jewelry and fossil dealers who offer better material and wish to be part of Tucson's most-attended show. The SHOWCASE debuts in 2018 with just (30) 12' x 20' booths and will expand every year until it reaches 300. Free entry and open to the public.

Dealers! The booth fee in the SHOWCASE is the same low cost as in the Main Tent (per square foot) which is by far the lowest cost of all climate-controlled shows in Tucson. This 18-day show includes all three critical weekends of the Tucson event so you can maximize your sales. Each carpeted 12' x 20' booth is delineated with pipe & drape. The modular hard walls and stage lighting are optional upgrades that add elegance and comfort.

Here are the important details about this new addition:

- Limited to better mineral, fossil, gem & jewelry dealers
- Booth sharing is highly encouraged and there is no additional cost for doing so
- Show dates and hours are the same as the Main Tent
- The booth fee varies according to location but is similar to the Main Tent on a square foot basis.
- Included: 2,000w electricity, pipe & drape booth dividers, and six 8' x 24" tables
- 24-hour security by armed, uniformed, personable, and well-trained security officers
- Climate controlled with heat and air conditioning
- Ultimately, the Showcase will become larger than the Main Tent
- A 3,200 sq. foot lobby starts the buyer experience with a positive vibe
- Supported by a massive $150,000 billboard, internet, and magazine ad campaign

These photos were taken at an art show in Miami but they are the same walls and lighting that will be available to SHOWCASE dealers to upgrade
their booths into any creative and welcoming configuration that they choose.

The 22nd Street Mineral & Fossil Show is presented by Eons Expos, the same brother-sister team
that brings you the Denver Coliseum Show every September and the NY / NJ Show every April.
