Every year, the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama get together to share ideas among pawnbrokers and get up to date info concerning the industry and what we all need to concentrate on for the coming months. This year, South Georgia and the Florida panhandle have been invited as well, which will make for a great mix of pawnbrokers from the greater southeast area of the country. With the show returning again this year to Orange Beach, Alabama we hope pawnbrokers from the surrounding areas will take advantage and drive over.
In addition to 4 wonderful seminars we’re holding, including one with Les and Seth Gold from Detroit’s “Hard Core Pawn,” we have 50 vendors from all over the country who will be showing their wares and sharing their knowledge. The trade show is constantly expanding with new vendors, products, and ideas. New this year are golf club buyers, a CVD diamond tester, and a jewelry appraisal service for your inventory.
Make plans to arrive on Friday so you don’t miss out on the luau that starts after the opening reception. The trade show will be opening at 4 pm Friday afternoon so get a head start on everybody else and sell your diamonds right out of the shoot. Also, be sure and bring some of your “eager to learn” young people as we will have a special reception for all the young professionals on Friday evening.
Make your plans now to support the Dixie Educational Conference & Trade Show March 22-24, 2019 at Perdido Key Beach Resort in beautiful Orange Beach, Alabama. Check out our website for hotel and show registration information. Also, don’t forget to set aside something wonderful left over from your inventory to bring for the auction, which is a great way to raise money for your state and show your support of the industry. The auction takes place Saturday night during the dinner and awards ceremony.
PawnMaster will be attending the DIXIE show, performing demos of our products, new features, and services.
