Entry fee is $3.00 per adult, which also covers your spouse/partner and children under 18. Any child under 18 is admitted free even if unaccompanied by a paying adult. Registration is required to enter the bourse area.
What am I actually buying on this site?
You are not making a purchase at this time. You are simply pre-registering for the expo to avoid lining up to fill out a registration form at the show. We will request your $3.00 admission fee covering you and your family when we present you with your pre-printed badge. After providing us with your email address, we will advise you of any news regarding the show that may be of interest to you.
What personal information will you be asking of me?
We will need your email address to send you a confirmation email and a reminder email before the show, and we may send you an update or two about the show in the weeks preceding it. We are also asking the number of people in your party, your collecting interests, and your city and state so that we can better understand where our attendees live.
How long does the event last?
Three full days. January 31, 2014 through February 2, 2014
How much does the event cost?
In 2014, we have priced admission at $3.00 for individuals and couples, with children under 18 admitted free. As a result, most of our advertising publicizes the admission fee as "$3.00 per family."
Are there any exemptions to the fee?
Entry is complimentary to our exhibitors, dealers, invited speakers, and show volunteers. Other exemptees include members of the media, Hilton Hotel staff, United States Postal Service staff and adults leading organized children's tours like scout leaders or teachers. Children and youths under 18 are admitted free whether they are accompanied by a paying adult or not.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is plenty of free parking at the Hilton. Gwinnett County Transit bus service operates from Doraville Station on Friday and the route passes the intersection of Peachtree Industrial and Holcomb Bridge Road. The hotel is a very short walk north on Peachtree Industrial.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Is my admission good for the whole day? Throughout the weekend?
Yes and Yes. Your badge grants you re-entry priveleges throughout the entire weekend.
Can I sell stamps at this show?
There will be an appraisal table staffed by show volunteers. You may discuss your holdings with dealers who may be prepared to make a cash offer if your holdings are of interest. Note that dealers are very busy with sales on Friday and Saturday from show opening through mid-afternoon. We recommend Sunday for those wishing to discuss sales of collections with dealers. Please note that our dealers have purchased the exclusive right to buy and sell stamps at the expo, therefore, any sales of your material must be to a table dealer if you are selling at the show.
Should I bring my children/grandchildren?
We would be disappointed if you did not. We have a youth area with activities for children staffed by volunteers with extensive experience working with young collectors. And children are admitted free. The youth area is in the main ballroom, so you should be able to monitor your children from most parts of the bourse area.
