CHICAGOPEX - Itasca, IL USA Nov. 16-18, 2018
2018 November 16, 17, 18
And here... we... go!

I'm working on wantlist letters to go out in Monday's mail to the CHICAGOPEX bourse dealers as I sit here watching/listening to the Schuyler Rumsey SASCAL auction online, so I figured it's time to post about the show next month.

If you're located anywhere in midwestern USA and you've never attended, you owe yourself a treat. Free parking (almost unhreard of in Chicagoland), free admission, easy to get to.

I'll be hosting a buy/sell/trade get-together for U.S. revenue specialists Thursday evening before the show and probably continuing Friday evening, so if you're interested, send me a message.

The bourse diagram that they are providing on the website is a low-resolution Nth-generation scan, not very useful. So I've created one that has all of the dealers in their respective booths.

I contacted the bourse coordinator and offered it to them to use, also saying that I'd be happy to update it as the show dates approach, but never received any response. Oh well.

Thanks very much for doing that. Looks better than anything I've seen as a boothholder during the past 18 years...Will suggest to Charles & Team that they use it in the next show program and on the website.

See you there,
