Let’s Go to the Show!

It is very close to show time! This is THE year to attend the BCA Trade Show in Las Vegas. Vegas has never been as affordable as it is now. AZBilliards was there two weeks ago and the bargains are everywhere. Half-price rooms, great show deals, and no long lines at dining spots! Las Vegas is on sale and you can get there on very cheap flights as well.

Once there, buyers will find a market well suited to their liking. Many retailers have allowed their inventory levels to drop as a tool in the fight against the recession. But the economy is beginning to turn, the Christmas selling season is right around the corner, folks are beginning to use their wallets again and the values now available from manufacturers makes this a prime time to energize those pale inventories.

Let's face it, this is a buyers market. The manufacturers are responding to this by coming out with new lines of goods that are priced beneath their old lines of equal quality. You can buy better cues, better tables, better racks and other accessories at prices that are the best they have been in many,many years. If you are a room owner who is considering adding a pro shop there has never been a better opportunity for you to do so. 

Retailers, remember the old adage. You can't sell what you don't have. It is now a familiar wisdom that crisis creates opportunity. Las Vegas is where that opportunity blooms for the billiard business.

AZBilliards will be at the show visiting with old friends and making new ones. We hope to see you there!
