The Central States Numismatic Society is enlarging the bourse of its 83rd annual convention, acquiring additional space in the Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center and changing the floor plan.
The convention’s bourse will have space for more than 80 additional tables and more exhibits, according to a press release from the CSNS.
The 2022 CSNS convention, in Schaumburg, Illinois, from April 27 to 30, is planned to be the first held since 2019. COVID-19 restrictions shuttered the 2020 and 2021 CSNS conventions. The CSNS convention is one of the largest coin shows in the country.
Given a near-sellout of the 2022 bourse space, the convention’s organizers decided to expand the space to accommodate more dealers. In a phone interview, convention manager Larry Shepherd provided some explanation for the increased demand: “Since we went a year, year and half since there have been major shows, the FUN show was a roaring success, [and] the coin market is hot right now.” He also described “pent up demand from dealers at show, pent up demand from collectors” and “a tremendous demand for tables.”
