Per Beckett Media, the National Sports Collectors Convention has announced the locations of the show through 2019. They are as follows:
2016: Atlantic City
This year, the show will be held in Chicago. Many have asked how these decisions are made. Cities must have ample hotel rooms, be willing to set aside those rooms years in advance, have a convention center and be affordable. The National committee offers a selection of cities, and ultimately, dealers (exhibitors at the show) vote on the host city.
Chicago and Cleveland often win out for being somewhat centrally located, meeting the requirements noted above (including a major airport) and past success at those locations.
That said, who’s looking forward to Atlantic City? Which city would you like to see the show held?
