Looking For A "Letter of Invitation" For The #TucsonGemShows?

I recently had a request for a "Letter of Invitation" from a foreign business man for the Spring event in Tucson. There was a time when you could find these from almost every show promoter but that is no longer the case...I finally found what I was looking for from Lowell Carhart of Eons Expos.

For those of you who don't know what this is or its use - the basic concept is that this letter will show the U.S. consular officer who considers the visa application that the person applying has a specific plan regarding visiting (and eventually leaving) the U.S.  This then accompanies the visa application for the consul.

Thanks to Lowell, there is no need to search each show website - now your Letter of Invitation has it's own website!

About 200 retail and wholesale vendors are on-site who sell mineral specimens, fossils, gemstones, beads, jewelry, meteorites, crystals, geodes, decorator items, and lapidary supplies and equipment. One of the highlights of the show each year is a special exhibitor showing off his or her finds. Every child attending the show gets a free mineral specimen, and kids of all ages can select an inexpensive geode and watch as it is cracked open to reveal never-before-seen crystals. Also, for a small fee, kids can pan for gemstones and fossils. Visitors of all ages can bring their “unknown” minerals for free identification. And for those who want to continue their learning about nature’s geo-treasures, there are free lectures on topics related to rocks and minerals offered every day.
