planning my first trip to the Tucson Gem fair. Any suggestions on
hotels? What are(a) of town do I want to stay in. Suggestions for
restaruants? After hours?
At this late date you will probably have to be content with just
about any Hotel reservation that you might be able to get. Many of
the lower cost hotels and motels have been sold out for the Gem Show
period for almost a year.
If you haven’t checked it out yet, I recommend a visit to the Tucson
Show Guide online at < http://www.tucsonshowguide.com/tsg/ > with all
of the on the February 2004 Tucson Shows. It lists 34
shows and/or show locations this year
< http://www.tucsonshowguide.com/tsg/tucson/ > gives the hotels and
restaurants and local attractons
You can even pre register for some of the shows from this web site.
You will have a listing of all of the exhibitors that are showing and
the locations at which they are showing. If you go to the individual
show page you can find out the company’s booth number.
If you go to the search page, you can search all of the show
exhibitors, at all of the shows, to find which has a certain product,
or you can search for the same product in only a specific show, or by
country of origin (or state) of the exhibitor, etc. There is a
complete list of all of the products listed and how they are
specifically listed, to aid your search.
Of course the Colored Stone Tucson Show Guide charged each exhibitor
for their “online” product listings, thus if a specific company did
not pay for the listings, you will find it on the list of exhibitors
and can find out which show it is in and the booth number, but will
not be able to access its list of products or their address &
phone/fax, e-mail, & web-site
As for the restaurants and attractions - get a hard copy of the
Tucson Show Guide printed by Colored Stone magazine and given out
free at most of the show locations. It will have a section on
Restaurants and other attractions in the area. There is also a
section on the Tucson Show Guide online which gives a list of Hotels
with addresses and telephone numbers.
If you are a wholesale buyer don’t forget to come by the GJX show as
there are several Ochidians exhibiting in that show.
