If you went to Tucson for the 2016 shows and did not make it to our show in the Tucson Convention Center, we will not have a record of your attendance as each show in town is run by different companies. Each buyer in your company must attend and have their badge scanned at the AGTA GemFair™ Tucson in the Tucson Convention Center each year to be automatically pre-registered for our show the following year.
