Number of sponsors for World’s Fair of Money increases

Thirty sponsors have pledged support for the American Numismatic Association's 2012 Philadelphia World's Fair of MoneySM, which will be held Aug. 7-11 at the Pennyslvania Convention Center. It is the ANA's 121st annual summer convention.

"We're thrilled to have increased the number of sponsors for this year's show. We aim to put on a bigger and better show each year, and this increased number of sponsors is reflective of that," said David Truesdell, ANA sales and sponsorship manager. "It really says something positive about the numismatic business community that so many of them are committed to helping us put on such a big show with so many great exhibits and educational opportunities."

Title and corporate sponsors receive a wide range of benefits, including having their names and logos on bags for the show's visitors and on the welcome banner at the bourse entrance, as well as free convention program advertising.
