This year for the first time as exibithors we  attended the  Munich show .  This is easily the largest show in Europe and the most important for  many European  dealers and collectors.
There were about   750 dealers spread out over 3  halls - of the new Munich trade fair center.

We arrive at the show on Thursday before noon and our first impression while we were unloading our cars , was that  it will be impossible to see all in 3 days and to stay also at our table. So as we were in four persons,  two went around for no more that 2 hours while the others stayed at the table and so on.

As was not possible to catch every aspect of this show, in this virtual tour, we will give you at least a sense of what was going on.....

Our general impression is that was a very good show and also well attended despite the International situation.


The impressions of  ....   A friend of us Marco Marchesini (author of the Val Graveglia special article on last issue of Mineralogical Record) visited the show from the first set up day...and here are his comments.
