The National Sports Collectors Convention Sets Site Locations For Next 5 Years

Shortly after the 2018 National ended, eligible National exhibitors received a ballot to select the site for the National in 2021, 2022 and 2023. Based on the success of the event in Cleveland this year, it is no surprise that exhibitors elected to return to Cleveland in 2022 by more than a 2-1 vote.

The current schedule for future National Sports Collector Convention sites is as follows:

  • 2019 – Donald E Stephens Convention Center, Chicago, IL
  • 2020 – Atlantic City Convention Center, Atlantic City, NJ
  • 2021 – Donald E Stephens Convention Center, Chicago, IL
  • 2022 – International Exposition (I-X) Center Cleveland, OH
  • 2023 – Donald E Stephens Convention Center, Chicago, IL

The one complaint heard in Cleveland this past summer was the lack of wifi for use by exhibitors.  The staff at the I-X Center heard this criticism and worked out a plan that provides free wifi for exhibitors to access email and to surf the web.  In addition, there will be free wifi access for attendees, suitable for checking emails and basic internet website browsing along a designated area in the pavilion.

The 40th National Sports Collectors Convention will be held July 31-August 4, 2019 at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Chicago (Rosemont) IL.

Dealer Booths for the 2019 National are sold out.  Follow our web site at for up-to-date information on the National.  Tickets for the 2019 National will be available in March 2019. We will begin announcing Autograph guests for the show in March 2019.
