After two years (2015 and 2016) of experimenting with publishing two separate Tucson EZ-Guides (one for mineral/fossil shows, the other for jewelry/bead shows), we went back to just one edition in 2017, as we originally had been from 2004 to 2014. Now, the Tucson EZ-Guide is a 35,000 circulation full-color guide that is distributed at all 40 shows in Tucson, on the shuttle routes, and at Tucson International Airport. The guide features articles by writers like Robyn Hawk, Helen Serras-Herman and Lisa Marie Morrison who have been selling and buying in Tucson and journalistically covering the show for many years. Buyers and sellers alike have been enjoying the Tucson EZ-Guide since 2004, as it quickly became Tucson's best, most engaging, easiest to read show guide, and also the most affordable to advertise in.
