I’m planning on attending the Tuscon Show this year for the first
time and would love some input into planning for the best experience
since this will likely be a one time event for me, given the distance
and cost of attending. I’m recently retired, so have the time
finally. I find myself returning to my artist roots, as trained in
college but spent my professional career as a professional clinical
counselor and art therapist.
Therefore, I do not have a business license (maybe in the future?)
which would gain me access to some shows. I got the show guide but
this appears to be more of an advertising list and isn’t very helpful
to me in figuring where it might be best to put my time and efforts.
Maybe I need to read it differently?
My interests are in seeing what’s new in tools & demonstrations,
perhaps a workshop (where do you find out about these?). and of
course shopping for gems & cabs. Any practical tips and insights into
how to make this productive and fun would be greatly appreciated. I’m
not even too sure about what I should be asking about. If I didn’t
ask, answer anyway!
Is anyone else planning on attending? I’m also interested if you
have attended in past years, how it helped with your work when you
got back to the bench. What should I be open to in developing my
skills and work?
