Joint Stamp Shows - Yea or Nay? ........ 7.23.18

Two of the largest philatelic organizations in the United States are combining their major stamp shows of the year for a first-ever joint APS/NTSS stamp show in Columbus, Ohio, August 9-12 -- just a couple of weeks away.

The jury is still out - is this a great thing for the hobby? expanding the attendance for both? or is it a diminishment of each? Let me know your thoughts - both before the show and after. I'm anxious to see how this goes.
