Well, after hearing that Joelanta was taking over the month of March 2010 and GIJOECON taking over late April 2010 (in Providence, RI), we’ve decided to move The Great Texas G.I. Joe show to the summer – June 26th and 27th to be exact. The location is the same – the Arlington Convention Center – smack dab between Dallas and Ft. Worth, Texas. We’re working to lock in the hotel rate of $99 a night with the Sheraton, which is right across the parking lot.
With the International G.I. Joe Convention moving their show to late April, we feel collectors will be looking for a show to enjoy during the summertime and in an area within driving distance or for an affordable airfare. Well, you cannot get any better than June, and Arlington is the hotspot for summer family fun (The Original Six Flags Over Texas). Factor in The Great Texas G.I. Joe Con and you’re set for a fun-filled two day (or three day) weekend.
The showroom will be 6000 square feet in size with the capability to hold 28 booths. Notable dealers such as Cotswold Collectibles, True Scale Armor, Good Stuff to Go, and RS Custom Toys have already reserved booth space, and I have a gut feeling that the other slots will fill up fast.
