As in will there be one in the fall? I figure some guys around here may have some inside info. I think attendance numbers would be huge.

It's listed on the Phily Guitar Show website. But the convention center website is NOT showing it. I suspect it's not gonna happen.

Hey, Scott, the show IS now showing up on the convention center website. I hope to make hotel reservations for it later today.

...and hope to see you there!

It's now looking like I won't be attending this year, after all, unfortunately. And it's also likely that there won't be a MLP booth there this fall. I do hope, and expect, that we will have a booth there next year, and if so, I'll be there!

The Show will be at the Greater Philly Expo Center, November 6th and 7th.
This only gave us two months to prepare, and honestly that isn't enough time
for the staff to prepare. Hopefully, next year we will be back at the show.

I attended this year , the show was a bit smaller than post Covid years.

It was a a packed house , the dealers and fans showed up.

I sold a everything I brought , made fair money, (cash in pocket , no PayPal , pictures or tire kickers) on gear just sitting

collecting dust in my music room.

Nice selection of vintage and new guitars and amps of every make and model. Prices were a bit high , but that's expected.

The weather was perfect and the drive was beautiful with the fall colors.

Arrived at 10AM and was driving home 3 hours later , was home before 5PM , all and all a great day.

I went to the show on Sunday. Didn't find a deal. Maybe Saturday was better?

There are no deals at any guitar shows unless you're a dealer who buys low and sells for a a small profit. Once the overhead , time , travel and a weekend away from home are factored in , profit is small.

Must be a nice tax write-off for those who invested large outlay off cash/credit , time & serious overhead cost in buying table space , shipping of gear , lodging , food ,etc...

If one has items to sell , but doesn't care to take under wholesale market value for those said items , you'll do well , as stated in the
post above.
