David, Las Vegas starts with the GLDA Show on May 28-30. AGTA, JCK,
G+LW, and GeoExpositions all start on 31 May and end on June 2. I
will be set up with G+LW this year. From past years I can tell you
there is not a lot of either jewelry equipment or lapidary equipment
available at the show. You need to bring proof of business to get
into most of the shows. Only GeoExpositions is open to the public.
JCK is almost impossible to get into unless you own a Jewelry Store
Front. Bring lots of money as everything in Las Vegas is about
money. The only thing they do not have a surcharge on is toilet
use. Opps should not have mentioned that out loud.
