Attention all coin enthusiasts! The highly anticipated Greater American Coin Convention (GACC) is just around the corner, and it promises to be an event you won’t want to miss. Scheduled for September, the show is rapidly approaching, and preparations are well underway. Larry Shepherd, President of Shepherd Expos Management, has shared some exciting updates and crucial information for attendees.

With only four months to go, hotel rooms are filling up fast. Many club members have already secured their accommodations through the event’s official website, If you haven’t booked your stay yet, now is the time! The website offers links to all contracted properties with specially negotiated discounted rates. Given the popularity of the event and the prime location in Tampa, it’s essential to make your reservations as soon as possible.

Tampa’s vibrant riverwalk and convenient trolley system make it easy to explore the city. These connect various hotels and the convention center, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all attendees. For those who have never visited the Tampa Convention Center, you’re in for a treat. Named the best convention center in the Southeast in 2023, it boasts a stunning waterfront location, surrounded by restaurants and lively nightlife.

The GACC is set to offer more than just a venue; it will be an experience to remember. In the coming days, several significant announcements will be made, adding to the excitement. Expect to hear about a new major sponsor, an official grading service, participation from the U.S. Mint, and a special release at the show.

Moreover, the event will feature enhanced educational opportunities for collectors, all conveniently located on the bourse floor. Shepherd Expos Management is also planning nighttime social activities to further enhance your experience. Safety is a top priority, and the event location ensures you can comfortably walk the streets and enjoy the local attractions.

Shepherd Expos Management is also planning ahead, with announcements expected regarding a two or three-city show schedule for 2025. Responding to dealer feedback, the aim is to provide better show options in safe, profitable locations with a high concentration of serious collectors. These future venues will offer improved opportunities for both dealers and collectors.

Partnering with Coin World, the GACC is receiving unparalleled promotion. Coin World has been advertising the show online and in print weekly since November and will continue to do so up until the event. This extensive promotion ensures that this show will be one of the most well-publicized events in history.

The Tampa show is strategically located in the heart of the second-largest collector area in the nation, encompassing 21 million people and a vast collector base within a four-hour drive. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet other passionate collectors from across the state and nation, form lifetime friendships, and connect with top dealers who may not typically attend state shows.
