OMSA 2006 - to the desert once more

Posted on Mon, 10 July 2006 by Phil Mussell - Medal News

It's not long now before this year's Orders and Medals Society of America annual convention in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Arizona

Since we first attended OMSA in 1998 (Chicago) we have become devotees and would hate to miss one, although we sell out every year the event isn't just about making sales but rather it is far more about making friends (if you'll excuse the cliche).

Because the US is so vast this convention is the one time in the year when all the American dealers and collectors can get together and it really is an enjoyable event. Many will travel for thousands of miles just to be there even - even to the depths of the baking desert in August!

One or two (and they know who they are) will have driven the continent (via many other shows) just to attend.

For more information on the convention which takes place over the weekend 3-6 August (with Saturday 5 being the "public" day) visit http/
