Changes For The 2014 Show:

Organization

We have reorganized our staff to simplify, provide efficiency, better management, oversight, and organization before, during, and after the show. We believe all of the new management methods will provide a much better experience for every exhibitor at our show. All entries are computerized, and will be entered by one staff member and reviewed by another. Every exhibitor providing an email address will be sent a confirmation of their exhibitor information and their exhibits. Cages and cards will be set up in an organized fashion well in advance of the show. We are providing only one cut off date (mail in) for entries of March 1st, 2014.

NEW VENUE

The show has been moved to the Allen County Fairgrounds. This move was made to improve the experience of the exhibitors. The show will be in heated buildings, with indoor restrooms, Internet, with no need to exit the buildings for water, feed, or supplies. There are ATM's on site and hotels, restaurants, and shopping all near the fairgrounds.

The 2014 show is being planned and organized to provide each exhibitor with the very best experience possible.
