Manning House Show - Bead,
2010 Show Dates Cancelled
After a great deal of consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2010 Manning House Show - Bead, Gem & Jewelry Exchange which had been scheduled for February 2nd through February 6th, 2010.
Our show had been small and intimate and we had enjoyed very loyal exhibitor and customer attendance. Although last year's show received outstanding accolades, for which we are very humbled, 2010 is simply not the year to promote a growing show.
Our goal for 2010 was to promote an even larger show so our exhibitors would experience the same or better returns as were achieved in 2009. But the slow economy has caused a contraction of exhibitors willing to commit to any show in Tucson and we made the very difficult decision to cancel our 2010 show based on this industry downsizing.
We appreciate the loyal support of our exhibitors, instructors and buyers. We will keep you informed as the economy improves and Tucson can once again enjoy its reputation as the most talked about bead, gem & jewelry marketplace in the world.
Take care and, as always, we wish you a most prosperous 2010 business year.
We will miss seeing you!
