Dallas chosen to host 2016 National Money Show
Board of Governors picks host clubs for 2014 National Money Show during teleconference
On the heels of a highly successful National Money Show held in Dallas earlier this fall, the American Numismatic Association Board of Governors decided to bring the National Money Show back to Dallas in the spring of 2016 during a special meeting held via teleconference on Nov. 20.
"We had such a great show in Dallas this fall, and the response from those attending was so positive, it made perfect sense to head back to Dallas in 2016," said ANA President Tom Hallenbeck.
The board approved Dallas as the host city on a 7-1 vote, with Gov. Cliff Mishler voting no and Vice President Walter Ostromecki abstaining. The show will be held March 3-5, 2016, at the Dallas Convention Center.
The Board of Governors chose Dallas over St. Louis to host the show, citing such factors as the success of the recent Fall National Money Show and a higher average temperature for the time of year. ANA Conventions Manager Rhonda Scurek noted that only Dallas and St. Louis had availability on the chosen show dates.
By unanimous vote, the board also named the Georgia Numismatic Association and the Metropolitan Coin Club of Atlanta as the host clubs for the 2014 National Money Show, which will be held at the Cobb Galleria Center from Feb. 27 to March 2, 2014.
