Xpo Press publishes 12 gem show guides for a combined 125,000 annual circulation!

When buyers come to a gem show they expect a printed show guide to help them navigate the shows and to provide information about the show dates and hours, floorplans and vendors. This is where Xpo Press steps in. We publish high-quality, full-color gem show guides to assist not only the show attendee but also to provide effective advertising opportunities for shows, vendors and local businesses. Your company may reserve ad space in nearly any of the gem show guides that Xpo Press publishes. The trim size and specifications for each guide are the same, so if you reserve an ad in one guide, the same ad can be placed in any other guide without having to redesign or resize your ad. And Xpo Press offers up to 50% off your entire ad cost with special discounts! No publisher in the world offers this type of advertising opportunity to reach so many gem, mineral, fossil, and jewelry enthusiasts and buyers.
