May 15, 2009 – DALLAS, TX: The American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) announced today that it is changing its day pattern for the 2010 AGTA GemFair™ Tucson. The GemFair has traditionally started on Wednesday and closed on Monday. It will now start on Tuesday, February 2, 2010 and close on Sunday, February 7, 2010.
“We have had many requests over the years from exhibitors and buyers alike to move our show dates back one day,” stated Douglas K. Hucker, AGTA CEO. “With the support and cooperation of the Tucson Gem & Mineral Society and the Tucson Convention Center, we were finally able to make it happen.”
The AGTA Spectrum Awards Gala is still planned for Saturday night, its traditional night. Other events may or may not change depending on the individual groups involved.
