This week’s poll is going to help me support you, the collecting community and the dealers who serve them should I be privileged to be elected to the American Numismatic Association Board of Governors. I have not made it a secret that I am against the show being fixed in Chicago. So one of my platform items is rotate the World’s Fair of Money to different areas of the country and different cities within those regions.
Thinking about this, I was curious about where would you, my readers, like to see the World’s Fair of Money. While looking at a map, I thought about several places across the country where it might be interesting to hold the show. Read the list and think about your top three preferences. Mark your choice in the poll and let me know. If you have another suggestion, let me know in the comments, below.
By the way: you will notice there is one entry that I am interested in… not that it should influence your choice!
Where would you like to see the ANA World's Fair of Money held? (select 3)

Chicago is far and away the best site to hold a major convention. The close location of hotels
fine restaurants and mass transit just make it ideal. Washington D.C., Detroit and some others
are tough to get to and are security concerns ( my opinion). Atlanta is the only other major airline
hub that is easily reached but the convention center is several miles away. In this day and time
when personal security is such an issue I think that Chicago is the best choice. I believe this was
voted on a few years ago by the A.N.A. board
and it was decided then that Chicago would be ideal. When Chicago
last hosted the show we were going thru a rather severe recession and still most dealers did well.
