2013 Super Billiards Expo Moves to New Jersey

June 18, 2012 · 3 Comments

News Flash! The 2013 Super Billiards Expo will be held April 4-7, at the New Jersey Convention Center in Edison, NJ.

The site is 15 minutes from Newark International Airport and very close to a confluence of major highways, including the New Jersey State Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway.

"We tried to work with Oaks to improve things that we needed changed, but they responded by wanting to give us less space," said Allen Hopkins, the event promoter.

"The new location will have carpeted ballrooms for the 3-Cushion and Trick Shot events, and carpeted areas for other events, including the ACA banquet room. There are more bathrooms and better lighting, and parking is good. Overall it's simply a much nicer facility and I think everyone will be pleased. The host hotels, a nice Sheraton and a Hilton, will be running shuttles to the expo."

    I've been to the convention center in Edison many times for trade shows, and I have to agree with Allen -- it's a much nicer facility than Oaks. Plus, it's much easier to find, right off such main arteries as the NJTP and GSP, with scores of hotels in the surrounding area.

    This facility looks a lot more professional and secure than the 2012 Pennsylvania location.
    Hopefully there is cushioned flooring and the Wi-Fi works properly.

    "We tried to work with Oaks to improve things that we needed changed, but they responded by wanting to give us less space,"

    it seems like everyone is greedy these days, wanting to boost costs for the same thing and then hurt business relations in the negotiations :/
