Madagascar Minerals® Gem Show 2018 - Jan 19 - Feb 12
Dear Valued Gem and Mineral Industry Friend,
With the Tucson Show getting started soon, we wanted to send you a glimpse of what we have going on.
This year has been extremely eventful with respect to our mining operations in Madagascar; you may find the "News Updates" section especially worthwhile to look over. At the bottom of that section are listed four Gem and Mineral Shows which Norcross-Madagascar/NMG will no longer be attending in 2018. New Gift Show obligations conflicted with some of our customary past show dates for 2018. Also, we have relocated our China mainland operations back to Madagascar, as operations in Madagascar are more cost-effective.
As we have done in previous years, we continue to understand many clients may still be conservative in their purchasing habits at Tucson Gem Show 2018. Owing to this situation, during our usual pre-show calling campaign, we received numerous orders from clients who elected not to attend the show this year. If you have not heard from one of our sales representatives to-date, and find yourself in the same category, please contact us at 520-882-8884. You may need new material, but prefer purchasing product in March or April. We want to work with our customers, understand their personal circumstances, and set goals to a successful and prosperous partnership working together.
Our Madagascar Minerals Club discount program is catered toward your individual needs. Should you not be in a position to purchase material at this time, please do not feel any pressure from our sales team, if you receive a call, but do allow our team to update your file. Please keep in mind that Norcross-Madagascar is open (and shipping worldwide) year-round. Our website, www.MadagascarMinerals.com, maintains a dynamic catalog with most of our wholesale products featured, with full discounts published.
During the show, as you purchase products from different vendors, we are happy to consolidate your merchandise, secure it in our warehouse, and ship it on to you. There is no need to be subjected to the inconvenience of leaving your purchased product all around town. With the volume of merchandise we ship, our rates could be significantly lower than you will be quoted elsewhere, and we want to pass that additional savings, and comfort on to you.This special Tucson Gem Show emailer edition comes to you annually, showcasing more and more products than the previous year. The 2018 Madagascar Minerals Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show will be exhibiting for the 11th year at our upscale Tucson Gallery and Warehouse, part of the Oracle Road Gem Corridor. You will find us at 201 W. Lester Street, AND OUR NEWLY ACQUIRED SHOWROOM ACROSS THE STREET AT 208 W. LESTER two short blocks EAST of N. Oracle Road on the southwest corner of W. Lester Street at N. 10th Avenue. (see map below)
THREE LOCATIONS TO SERVE YOU
As always, we are showing significantly more variety and quantity of products compared to last year. Another bonus is an enhanced focus on higher-end Gem Surfaces® and Gem Decor® offerings. This show, we will be featuring the Gem Gardens® Garden Decor® rough design line. Our main location boasts four impressive galleries, with the wholesale section, situated in our tent, covering the rear parking lot. Of course we still carry all of our traditional products! If you missed our gallery last year, please be sure to visit us this year! For your convenience, we have two  other locations - Kino Gem and Mineral Show, and Arizona Mineral & Fossil Show at Hotel City Center.
