Some of what we are working on to provide our guests and vendors with that extra value

* Our booths will be a full 10’ x 10’ not the usual 10’ x 8’ found at other shows

* Wide
12 foot aisle ways allowing for a safer and better traffic flow of the attending guests

* Providing top rated entertainment which is included in the price of admission to the convention

* Fully hosted with whole area sound by a Professional MC allowing us to keep all in attendance informed

* Large video screen for all the contests letting everyone see the work being judged

* Working with other area attractions to provide discounts to those attending the convention

* Seminars and classes for both artists and for the general public who wish to be more informed about the industry
Location, Location, Location. And we do have a tremendous site. The location is at what is called the Big or Super X of the Interstate
system. Where the 80 & 74 cross. Just a couple of hours from many large cities such as Chicago, St Louis, Des Moines and Peoria. A
straight shot from any of these Interstates to the door of the convention site makes getting there easy and quick. With a population
of 376,000 in the Quad City Area and nearly 37.4 million people comprising nearly 13% of the nation's population in the surrounding
300 mile area. There are some 37 shops within 50 miles of the Quad Cities, which makes the Quad City area one of highest per capita
of tattoo shops in the country. With just the 37 local shops you would have close to 100 people working as artists and support
personal. Take that number by the amount of work needing to be done to keep them open and you have a base of over 20,000*
people having that work done.  
*Just 50 artists times 10 clients a week times 52 weeks Equals 26,000                 

The Quad City Area is highly recognizable to a large amount of people. Some of the near-by attractions in the Quad City Area are; The
John Deere Pavilion, IMAX Theater, The Botanical Center, several types of museums, 3 gaming  boats, dozens of great bars, several
1st rate hotels & incredible dinning establishments. Then of course there is the Mighty Mississippi River.
