PRED,
Yes it will, if I am thinking what you are thinking.
I plan to bring a "big" ebony Gus Szamboti box cue.
And I will likely bring the first box cue ever made, done by Ginacue (Ernie Gutierrez) in
1969 for Eddie Kelly.
In addition, my Searing box cue, etc......there will be plenty of rare box cues at the show.....

Can attendees bring personal cues in?

To heighten security of the cues for sale by cuemakers and on exhibit by collectors, no cues/cases are permitted into or out of the exhibition hall during the show. This measure has been in place throughout all the years of the show, initially at the behest of the cuemakers and exhibitors, and has worked well.

The final list of exhibitors is just being finalized, and will be made available shortly. I look forward to meeting you at the show.
The cuemakers will have some amazing new cues for sale, and the collectors will have some stellar rare and historically significant cues on display (not for sale).

CH,
Thanks for the note. I enjoyed our conversations at the shows, and regret you will not be able to make the show this year.
It is going to be a good one.

There will be a number of special treats at this year's ICCS Show.

One interesting display will be The Glenn Collection, which will exhibit 45-50 titlist blank cues made by many of the top cuemakers of the past 50 years, including George B., Gus Sz, and on (and on).....a wonderful exhibit with many of the cues originally belonging to some of the world's top players ever.

This will be the first (and possibly only) time this unique set of cues will be on public display.

I will add some additional special items to this thread later........ come on Saturday if you can!

Any news on the 2018 ICCS?

The next ICCS show will take place approx in Sep-Oct, 2019, with no show scheduled for this year.
Several of the exhibiting collectors (and cuemakers) asked if the show could skip this year so they can add additional cues to their collections for exhibition.

Most of the collectors have several dozen (and many more) cues but they have also been exhibiting for years,
some for 14 straight years and are now adding more cues for first time display.

2019 is going to be a great show, and I will post a new thread with all the Show information far in advance, including dates, location, hotel venue,
Special Collection details and more. There will also be several new first-time exhibitors with never-before exhibited cues!
And high end custom tooled cases! And more....

Thanks for the inquiry. If anyone has questions, send me a PM anytime.
