Dear Dealers - come join us October 7, 2018
(next shows planned the first Sunday of October 2019 & 2020)

When the Aladdin Shrine Center in Columbus Ohio was torn down it left a huge void in the Doll Show industry. That center had a 40,000 square foot show area ran successfully for 35 years. To Fill that void, Gail Lemmon, former Promoter of the Norther Ohio Doll & Bear Show, and myself Sandra Kean Bullock, Promoter of the Toledo Doll & Bear Show have partnered to open a new show in that same vicinity at the beautiful Roberts Center in Wilmington Ohio. This is a full service facility with the convention hall, Holiday Inn Hotel, and a Max & Erma’s Restaurant all in one 80,000 square foot facility. This show is conveniently positioned between Columbus, Cincinnati, and Dayton and is sitting on I-71 just 30 minutes east of I-75. Like the old Columbus Show, this location will have eager customers traveling in from Indianapolis, Kentucky, West Virginia, throughout Ohio, and as far North as Michigan. 

This show is being heavily advertised as a weekend event. Workshops and guest speakers in conference rooms are planned for the Saturday’s before the show. At times we will include early entry to the show for customers attending the lectures on Saturday, which means that after you have set up, you will have a jump on some early sales if you choose to come in and set up the day before.

Dealers - Day before set up on Saturday will be available at no extra cost. Because of all the other events in the Roberts Centre, you are encouraged to make Hotel reservations as soon as possible. We do have special room rates at the Roberts Centre Holiday Inn. For group rates you must call them direct at (937) 283 3200.
We do provide all tables and two chairs per booth. All Tables are standard 8’x 33” banquet tables. Booth prices are as follows.
  • (1) Table $95.00 (LIMITED)
  • (2) Tables $145.00
  • (3) Tables $195.00
  • (4) Tables $245.00
Each additional table to extend booth length will be $45.00. Rental of a single 8’ table to be put within the confines of your booth will be an additional $20 (Single 8' tables can only fit in 4 and 5 table booths).
