Benefactor DonnaML Posted December 22, 2022 · Benefactor Benefactor Share Posted December 22, 2022 (edited) The next NY International Numismatic Convention is coming up soon, on January 12-16, and I'm wondering how many of you are planning to be there. I know I'm going to be there at least once, although I haven't decided yet which day(s) I'm attending. Here are the hours each day for the Bourse Area, which will have approximately 100 dealers this year. See https://www.nyinc.info/dealers.php . Bourse Area Hours Thursday, January 12 12noon - 7PM (Professional Preview - $125 Registration) Friday, January 13 10AM - 7PM (General Public Hours - $20 Registration Fee) Saturday, January 14 10AM - 7PM Sunday, January 15 10AM - 3PM Has anyone who isn't a professional dealer ever paid the $125 fee to be able to go on the Thursday? Did you think it was worth it in terms of more stock being available and/or being less crowded? Given that I'm not planning to spend thousands of dollars (I hope!), $125 would actually be a non-negligible percentage of my expenditures. On the other hand, it will almost certainly be less on a percentage basis than the buyer's premiums I regularly pay to auction houses. So I'm tempted. If I don't go on Thursday, I'll be there on Friday or Saturday. Last year I made the mistake of not arriving until about 2 or 2:30 pm on Saturday. As a result, I wasn't able to get to all the tables I wanted to see, because quite a few dealers were already closing down by around 5 or 5:30 pm, well before the ostensible closing time.
