Hotel rooms and bourse tables are selling out quickly for the American Numismatic
Association’s 2008 National Money Show™, March 7-9 in Phoenix. Better-than-expected
interest points to an exciting, well-attended spring convention in Arizona.
Hotel rooms at discounted convention rates at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix are now sold
out. Convention attendees can still take advantage of discounted rates at the ANA’s host
hotel, the Wyndham Phoenix, as well as the SpringHill Suites by Marriott. Both hotels are

companies. This year, more than 500 dealers will be in attendance. To reserve a bourse
