There will be big changes to the 2018 show. Our colossal Main Tent will expand again, but only to accommodate existing dealers who wish to increase their booth size. Further growth will come from the addition of the new 22nd Street Mineral Showcase tent. We plan to carpet this hard-wall tent structure 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 be 2.5x bigger and be priced 1/5 the daily cost of a GJX booth. Here are the important details about this new addition:
- Strictly limited to mineral & gem dealers
- Booth sharing is highly encouraged
- It runs January 25 - Feb 11, 2018, which are the same dates as the Main Tent
- Booth fee varies according to location (please see the floor plan below)
- Included: 2,000w electricity, pipe & drape 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!
- It will be 245 feet long x 100 feet wide and boast a 3,200 sq. foot entry lobby
- 66 spacious 12' x 20' booths + two Platinum 12' x 32' booths in the lobby
- Tucson dust will be controlled via asphalt, climate-control, and the single lobby entry
- Upscale restroom trailers as used at Professional Golf Association (PGA) events
- Supported by a massive $150,000 billboard, internet, and magazine ad campaign
