ARIZONA MINERAL AND FOSSIL SHOW will be moving to the EL CONQUISTADOR TUCSON, A HILTON RESORT, in Oro Valley, for 2021-2026 and the future.


El Conquistador is 16 minutes from downtown Tucson, and just 5 minutes north of Ina Road on Oracle. El Conquistador offers a number of major advantages over our current location. The El Conquistador is a six-minute drive from the Westward Look Resort show.  Other major advantages available at El Conquistador include:

1)   The selling/hotel rooms at El Conquistador have 420 square feet or more vs. Hotel Tucson City Center - average 168 square feet.  THAT’S 2.5 TIMES MORE SELLING SPACE at the El Conquistador!!!

2)   El Conquistador has 40,525 square feet of meeting room space vs. Hotel Tucson City Center which has 10,150 square feet of ballroom space. (Gold Room had 2,800 square feet and the Silver/Copper had 7,350 square feet).

3)   El Conquistador has 5 restaurants/food service facilities vs. Hotel Tucson City Center which has 2. 

4)   El Conquistador has 5 pools, a great golf course, spa facilities and other amenities available to guests and visitors.  Visitors can enjoy a beautiful courtyard with green grass, trees, plants, and a relaxing atmosphere!

5)   See attached maps of Hilton Meeting Rooms and Hilton Resort Map.


Arizona Mineral and Fossil Show has reserved 28 ground floor selling rooms in Buildings 1 and 2 (adjacent to the large hotel courtyard) AND 72 ground floor rooms in the “Casita Village." This is a total of 100 first floor selling rooms (Hotel Tucson City Center has 100 first floor selling rooms). We have also reserved meeting/ballroom room space (ranging in size from 425 square feet to 11,900 square feet). There is also hallway/foyer selling space available in front of the meeting rooms (an additional 8,040 square feet).  Arizona Mineral and Fossil show has also reserved sleeping rooms in buildings 1 and 2, on the upper floors.


There will be a dedicated parking lot on hotel property to accommodate box trucks and trailer/vans. There is an additional satellite parking lot on hotel property.  Arizona Mineral and Fossil Show will provide free shuttle service between El Conquistador's lobby and the satellite parking lot. The hotel has valet parking.


We invite all of our dealers and friends to join us at an OPEN HOUSE/HOSPITALITY EVENING to view the hotel, the casitas, rooms and ballroom spaces during the 2020 show (date and time to be determined). Applications and requests for selling spaces will be taken at the Hotel Tucson City Center. Visit for additional hotel facts and highlights. For questions, please contact us at
