ANA Dealer Day Monday August 7
Dealer Day tables are available at an extra fee to any dealer taking a table for the main event, which starts the next day. And according to the ANA website, the Dealer Day bourse may only be visited by dealers “who have a tax id or business number and have paid for their admission”.
First, based on past years, how strictly enforced is the restriction to Dealer Day bourse entry? Would the ANA really turn away 50 year members and well known collectors because they’re not dealers?
Second, how many dealers actually take tables for Dealer Day? Is it more like a sparsely attended PNG Day of the past, or is it more like a bustling “set up day” of a major show?
And third, what do you think of the arrangement? Personally, I prefer shows with short set up periods and that open with a big rush from the public, so I certainly don’t favor any arrangement that restricts access for a whole day. But that’s just my opinion.
