  • CROSSOVER EXPO UPDATES MAY 9TH – 12TH

    2016 CROSSOVER EXPO – ORLANDO FLORIDA
    Conference & Trade Show May 9th through May 12th

    Fellow Pawn Fans and More

    We are fast approaching one of the BEST educational programs held anywhere in the world today. The CROSSOVER EXPO this year is shaping up very nicely with over 15 high level educational seminars being presented along with a full-blown trade show component attached. We have over 30 vendors in a wide range of products and services that will be presenting at this years show.

    For Florida, it has been well over a decade since a trade-show for the FPA (Florida Pawnbrokers Association) has been produced and PCG and the FPA have teamed up to deliver just that, an educational trade show for the state and many others. Multiple states have registered thus far and more trickling in daily.

    As denoted from our earlier blogs, the Industry has more competition today from a wide range of areas which include the Internet, big-box retailers, super-funded super groups, public money, regulators, banks, politicians, and the list just goes on and on.

    Come listen and learn from the most diversified group of presentations presented anywhere today!

    BRING YOUR DIAMONDS, HIGH END WATCHES, ESTATE JEWELRY PIECES

    AND MORE “BUY-SELL-TRADE” ON LOCATION!

    Our host property is making last minute arrangements on our meeting space and our actual time schedule for the speakers is forthcoming, we should have this out this coming week, stay tuned!
