The venue is the Madison Plaza Hotel (same hotel as last year)
on Madison's east side. Convenient to shopping, entertainment, dining,
the famous Market on the Square. Home to the University of Wisconsin
and the State Capitol. On Friday and Saturday be sure to visit rooms
to sell, show, trade, or just look. The public is encouraged to visit
while rooms are open. We are sure you will like the accommodations
and show facilities. Be assured, another outstanding marble collectors
experience is in the works.
Many people miss some of the most informative, and possibly most interesting
aspect of a marble show. That would be Friday and Saturday prior
to the actual show in which marble collectors and show presenters exhibit
their marbles in their rooms. Many marbles are bought, sold, and traded.
You can really get to know marbles and collecting during this time.
Rooms will be open most of Friday afternoon, evening, and all day Saturday.
Just walk up and down the halls and visit any room that is open. If
you really want to know marbles, attend early. It is a good time to
buy, sell or trade or just get to know collectors.
