CK Shows has signed the contracts for
a Vegas Pop Up Coin Show to be held July 2–5 at the
Palace Station. The Las Vegas casinos were permitted to open up on
June 4 and have had plans in place for months to adhere to safety protocols
and state COVID guidelines. These are the guidelines the event
This unusual Vegas event, perhaps the first of its kind, will
have a very different face than past coin shows. Based
on current Nevada social distancing rules, the room will be comprised of 15
dealers and will likely be allowed no more than 25 additional people in the
room at a time, for a total of 50 people. To observe safety and state
requirements, fifteen 24-foot vendor booths will occupy the same
space that normally holds 80 vendor tables. Booths will be six
foot apart in every direction and aisles will contain floor
instructions, as to distance and directional flow.
Visitors to the show will be led in and out in groups, to not exceed the
recommended 50 people at one time in a
room. Naturally, these procedures will present a dramatic departure
from the look and feel of pre-COVID shows.
Each exhibitor’s selling space has been expanded to three 8 foot tables
and offers a huge trading venue to each
dealer. This suggests dealers can and
will bring anything they might think of to sell,
anything that’s not “nailed down,” as it were. We believe
the effect will be that buyerswill have nearly as good a choice in
this abbreviated show as they might have had in a
bigger show. Further, becausethere is a limited number of
collector customers allowed in the room at a single time, we
believe this will give the Dealer a little bit more undivided facetime
with his or her favorite dealer.
Attendees that desire to sell coin and currency collections,
precious metals and other numismatic materials, will find 15
dealers to choose from. This should allow for competitive bidding, as they
might expect in a larger trading floor. Public hours have been extended
to give full accessibility to all who wish to attend. Waiting lines will
follow all social distancing guidelines of six feet apart per related
