IWJG March 2019 Dallas Show Report

The feedback on the Gaylord Texan, almost universally, was that it was a Great Hotel and that the Grapevine area was perfect for most of our visiting members. Close to the Airport (DFW), near the renovated Downtown of Grapevine with shopping and restaurants but if you need to go to Dallas proper, not a bad drive at all... The Hotel is BIG!!! We mean, BIG!!!

The IWJG Dallas Event has historically been one of our smaller shows. We had about 110 tables at the event. If you were there, We don't have to tell that Monday was BUSY!!! We had between three and four hundred attendees and for a small show, that was a lot of traffic and it was busy all day long.

Typical Tuesday started off late and a little slow but about 10:30 there was a buzz in the room (not like Monday) but some of our Dallas attendees Loved Tuesday (Michel Mottale). They Sold some, Bought some and Collected some Money... That's important. Depending on who you talked to the Dallas Event was a little slow or Really Good... If you had the right merchandise, priced it right within the current market and wanted to sell or buy, you had a Good Show... Here is what we heard from some of our attendees...

Jake and Victoria Rokhlin thought Dallas was amazing. They loved the Gaylord and bought a ton of merchandise...Carl Cohen reported in with Really Good results in Dallas...Jennifer Chu had a Very Good Show in the Lone Star State... Mr. 18 Kt. Bob Wingate reported in with Good results and wants to know why we don't have Two Dallas Events every year???

Abdella Alyhabib, loved the Gaylord Texan Hotel, wants to bring his family next time and reported a Good Show in Texas... Newton Ng, bought a lot in Dallas... Ira Mish, said he did much better than he expected and that Monday was really busy. Thank you for coming to Texas Ira.

Armando Martinez bought a lot and sold some merchandise. Good Show... Nochum Mendelsohn Liked Dallas. He bought and Sold a lot of merchandise...Shane Ropp, had a Great Dallas Show, in fact Shane almost sold completely out of his merchandise on Monday.

Again, Monday was Really Busy for a smaller IWJG Event. Michael Ma, had a Good Texas Show. Marc Abercrombie reported in with Good Results in "Big D." Marc sold merchandise but more importantly, he found lots of merchandise to buy. Thank you, Marc, for making some of our sellers happy!!! Steve Fishman summed it all up, "Dallas is a small IWJG Show but it was a Good Event!"
