Another thing is the venue itself. We are looking at a location in Lewisville that is close to I35. It is not as spiffy as the Frisco location we are looking at but is 5 figures less expensive. So that is another thing we are discussing. We don't want to bring people to less than optimal digs for the show but we want to keep costs down too. I think it will be fun when it gets off the ground. This neck of the woods needs a larger show...
Easter weekend is a fiasco. I put in one in the early nineties, it was a colossal disaster. I vowed never to do an Easter weekend show again.

Thanks again for the feedback (and to the others too). I think we are not going to try to swim upstream and do it on Easter but nothing is firm yet. I haven't spoken to anyone yet that says Easter weekend is good for a show, There is no use starting out in the hole. Due to the holidays there are people out so we can't make a final decision until we get the venue(s) management back in their offices to talk about availability etc.....There seems to be a pent up demand for a quality, larger show in this area.

Kyle and I are in negotiations with the venue to sign a contract. As was the case before we could be missing some big situation but we are now hoping for a late April (27,28,29) or first weekend in May (3.4.5) time frame. Any and all feedback for those dates would be appreciated?
It is coming along nicely and there has been a completely, overwhelmingly positive response to it from almost everyone I have spoken with. Many of them are advertisers on our forum who think a larger show in this area is needed. It could be fun.

Default Dallas Show

Leon, it’s great to hear that a large show will be coming to the area! Overdue. I vote for April 27-29, but only for personal, selfish reasons

Last year that last weekend in April was the Altman Boston Show.

Also caution that Mother’s Day on May 12.

First weekend in May! Nicely coincides with Cinco de Mayo, so the whole weekend will be a party.

Default "The Texas Show" Sports Card & Memorabilia show - April 26, 27,28, 2019 - - Frisco TX

Kyle and I had a meeting with the gentleman in charge of renting out the Frisco/Dr.Pepper Dallas Stars Arena today. We are tentatively having the 1st Annual "The Texas Show" - Sports Card Convention there April 26, 27, 28 2019. The contract isn't signed but the person in charge is having the contract drawn up now and all of the terms were agreed upon. We will be getting CAD drawings to start figuring out the table arrangements asap. The name of the venue is actually changing tomorrow from Dr.Pepper to a big bank. It is the home to the Dallas Stars hockey team as well as one of their training facilities. They practice in part of it and the other part is an arena used for different types of events. It is a very nice facility inside and there is stadium seating for 4000 along with quite a few other areas to relax inside. That doesn't count any seating on the main floor or corridors. There will be autograph guests and many dealers and companies that aren't normally in this area. More details to come but those are the dates and venue. We expect to have between 150 - 200 tables plus a lot of vendors space in addition to that. It looks like we will probably be able to have alcohol served there, through the venue of course, and other refreshments and food as normal. Hopefully we will get a good turnout as the area has been lacking a good, bigger show for some time.
