70000 circulation

Even better for advertisers, Xpo Press guides are PICKED UP AND READ during their distribution period — we cannot keep enough of them on the racks! If you're selling your products in Tucson this year, advertising in these Xpo Press guides is your best investment to ensure your success at the gem and mineral world's most important showcase.
