Tucson 2018 - Index of Reports

Last Updated: 1st Feb 2018

By Jolyon & Katya Ralph

Here's where we will be and what we will be doing each day of the Tucson Show 2018. Unless you're reading this after the show, in which case it's where we were each day.

Wednesday, January 31st

The TNMS Show last year (in the old venue)

We'll likely be spending the day at Tucson's New Mineral Show (TNMS) - which this year is in a temporary new venue (1102 West Grant Road) due to problems with the building that was used last year - hopefully the show will return to that venue for 2019.

Thursday, February 1st


We'll be spending most of the day at the Arizona Mineral and Fossil Show - HTCC which those of us who have been too many times to recall still call the "Inn Suites Show". Last year internet and cell coverage was so bad at the show it was pretty much impossible to live report. Let's hope it's better this year! If time allows, we'll drive up to the Westward Look Resort to do a sneak preview of the show there.

Sunday, February 4th

We'll be doing a full day at the HTCC today to spend more time with the dealers, reporting on things we may have missed, and for our annual mindat meetup at 1.30pm outside the food tent in the courtyard, and returning to the Westward Look Resort in time for the evening social program at the Fine Mineral Show. We'll have a table in the evening event, so you can come by to say hello, check out our latest gadgets, and even pick up a t-shirt!

22nd Street Show

We will consist of a visit to the 22nd Street Show in the morning, possibly with a quick stop in at the JOGS show to see any last-minute bargains on the closing day. In the afternoon is the Tsumeb forum.

Tuesday, February 6th to Wednesday February 7th

We'll be visiting the Miner's Co-op and visiting the Granada Avenue Mineral Show along with the Fine Mineral International building and returning to any of the places that needed another visit. The Wednesday will be a set-up day so we're combining both days into a single report.

The TGMS show

It's time for the main event: the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show at the Tucson Convention Center! We'll have a booth, as always, in the upper atrium. You can stop by to say hello and check out our newest gadgets, but this year we're also doing something new: a series of mindat mini-presentations at the booth!
