Move to Conroe location proves advantageous to all involved
By Greater Houston Coin Club (GHCC) ……
From all indications the 61st Houston Money Show was a huge success. After moving from its previous location in downtown Houston, this year’s show was held in Conroe, Texas at the Lone Star Convention Center. Also, the date of the show was moved from early December to the third weekend in January. Changes in both the date and location proved to be tremendously successful.
The crowd was consistently heavy over the two-day show. Over 1,200 attendees were present for the first show at this new location. Strong support from the Conroe Visitors Bureau and the staff at the Lone Star Convention Center aided the Show during its inaugural year. The Lone Star Convention Center was a pleasing venue to both the dealers and the general public. Free parking, free wi-fi, a spacious bourse, plenty of rooms for exhibits, a scout merit badge clinic, meetings, etc., all contributed to the overall appeal of this venue.
The bourse floor was filled to capacity with 122 tables, plus a waiting list. Dealers attended from many states, coast to coast. The overall consensus was that the show was well-organized and a success.
Plans for next year’s show have already been put in place for January 18-19, 2019. The event will be held again at the Lone Star Convention Center in Conroe, TX. As indicated from early dealer sign-ups, the show should be popular and desirable to attend.
