The New York International Numismatic Convention is moving to a new venue for 2022. Here's the announcement.
The 50th Annual New York International Numismatic Convention is moving to a
new site according to Bourse Chairman Kevin Foley, who said:
event has for several years been under contract at the Grand Hyatt New York, that
hotel remains closed due to the impact of the Covid pandemic. Because of the
uncertainty this closure presented for our attendees, as well as the Grand Hyatt, we
reached an amicable agreement with the Grand Hyatt management for the
NYINC to relocate. Our new site will be the InterContinental Barclay hotel,
located at 111 East 48th Street at Lexington Avenue, just one block south of our site
from 2001 until 2017, the Waldorf-Astoria.
Auction lot viewing will open on
Friday, January 7. Auction sessions will be held each day from Monday, January
10 through Sunday, January 16. Our four day bourse area, with roughly 100 of the
leading specialists in world and ancient numismatics, gets underway with the
12noon-7PM Early Bird day on Thursday, January 13. The regular public hours
will be 10AM-7PM on Friday and Saturday, January 24 and 15 and 10AM-3PM on
Sunday, January 16.
There is a $125 registration fee for the January 13 Early Bird day. Admission
during the regular Friday-Sunday public hours is $20 for a pass valid all three days,
with $5 discount coupon is available on the NYINC website.
The InterContinental Barclay is characterized by luxury and style. Since first
opening its doors in 1926 the Barclay has welcomed countless guests to enjoy a
luxurious residential experience. Having undergone an extensive restoration
project within the last five years the Barclay is one of Manhattan's premier luxury
Located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, the Barclay is convenient to the
theater district, Madison Avenue and Park Avenue shopping, Rockefeller Center,
multiple dining opportunities and the United Nations.
The NYINC has for many years been a truly special event,
attracting booth holders, Early Birds and public attendees from across the United
States, as well as a broad representation of foreign countries. We'll once again have our format of a full week of world and ancient specialty auctions, educational
programs and our four day specialty bourse focused exclusively on foreign and
ancient numismatic material. Details are available on our website,
Foley expanded on his remarks by addressing Covid precautions by saying,
There is one very important difference between our 2022 convention and past
NYINC events that is caused by the Covid pandemic. New York City regulations
require the presentation of Covid vaccination documentation, either a vaccination
card or other written or electronic evidence of vaccination is required for
admission to and participation in events such as ours. The mandatory regulations
we are required to follow make no provision for exemptions or exceptions of any
kind, so everyone, our staff, our booth holders and our attendees will need to be
able to show such documentation when they check in.
