A few people already know this but I wanted to announce it on here that Aaron Newcomer is going to be running the St. Louis International Cartridge Show beginning this coming year.
Before anyone asks, nothing is wrong with Vic Engel. He just wants to focus more on running his twice-annual cartridge actions and felt it was time to hand the show off to someone else who would maybe have some fresh ideas.
I have a contract with the hotel for the next six years and we are penciled in for five years after that so the venue and date should stay the same for a while.
For the most part, everything will stay the same and there won’t be any huge changes. I do have some ideas that I think will be exciting and will look more into them over the coming years.
The only big change for this year is that it is the 20th anniversary of SLICS and I would like there to be a big focus on displays! There will be more and bigger awards and hopefully a lot more competition.
Below, is a sneak peek of the new branding and the ad that will hopefully be in the next journal which talks more about these changes and the upcoming display show.
I really appreciate the amazing community and friendship that’s built around this show and I hope you all will support me and continue making this the greatest show in the world.
