New EIGC Eastern Show In Philadelphia Switches Location To Valley Forge Casino Resort
Last week, IGC show organizers announced that the IGC East Show would be moving from Baltimore to Philadelphia under a new name: “EIGC — The Eastern Show For IGCs.” Now, IGC has confirmed an updated location of the event: the Valley Forge Casino Resort, located just outside Philadelphia in King of Prussia, Penn. The event was previously set to be held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center.
According to IGC Show co-founder Jeff Morey, the Valley Forge Casino Resort combines the amenities of a top-notch gaming resort with exhibit space, plus ballrooms and classrooms for EIGC’s three keynotes and 30 hours of educational sessions.
“We had an amazing opportunity to move to the Valley Forge Casino Resort, and we jumped on it,” Morey says. “We expect to win big with a full house of attendees and exhibitors, who will enjoy everything EIGC offers in one central hot spot — order-writing at the trade show, regionally relevant retail education conference sessions and an all-star concert Tuesday evening.”
In addition to offering slots and table games for gaming enthusiasts, the Valley Forge Casino Resort offers seven diverse on-site dining options, including celebrity chef Luke Palladino’s LP Steak, a newly renovated spa and fitness center, easy access from all major roads and free valet parking daily.
EIGC will take place Aug. 2-4, 2016, and will be specifically focused on the interests of Eastern IGC retailers.
Master Nursery Garden Centers will also hold its Eastern Regional Member Meeting at EIGC – The Eastern Show for IGCs. “We were extremely happy at IGC East this past summer,” says Jeff Lafferty, Master Nursery’s CEO.
“Our booth was jammed, and we wrote a lot of orders from members. Now, we are excited about next summer’s EIGC show at Valley Forge Casino Resort.”
IGC Chicago vendors who exhibit at EIGC will enjoy a “Lucky 13% Discount” on their EIGC booth space, in honor of the IGC Show’s 10-year anniversary this year in Chicago and three years in the East. IGC Chicago will be back at Chicago’s Navy Pier for next summer’s special 10th anniversary celebration, Aug. 16-18, 2016.
