2020 IPMS in San Marcos, TX
Posted by EdGrune on Sunday, August 05, 2018 1:19 AM

The 2020 IPMS show was awarded to San Marcos, TX.  San Marcos is between Austin, TX and San Antonio. The history, food, and  culture of both are readily accessibl.   

2021 was not awarded.  I heard conflicting information regarding their bid presentation.

Great news!  Being from San Antonio, it will be a short commute.  Any idea as to the dates?

That's why I'm not a member. I live in the Chicago suburbs. Not only is there only 1 decent ipms club in the area, It would necessitate me driving or flying all over the country to some mostly small towns to attend. I know it has been here before but with a lack of clubs and apparently interest in Chicago and other major markets it seems not to be very attractive to modelers in major metro areas.

There is a good briefing on the matter posted on the IPMS forums.  

Convention center space costs in major markets vs secondary markets is one of the reasons for going to places such as Phoenix in the middle of the summer or San Marcos

The San Antonio Club is sponsoring the event along with Austin and Houston and others in central Texas.  I thought the Austin Club was sponsoring the event but it turns out that San Antonio is just as expensive.  Our city council just can't stop adding excise taxes on conventioners which other cities will take advantage of.  Thank you San Marcos, now I can attend a convention without having to drive for 15 hours.
