AMERICOVER Hotel a Bargain

AMERICOVER Again Holds The Line On Hotel Rate
In 19 Years, AFDCS Show Has Never Exceeded $100

For the 19th year in a row, the hotel room rate at AMERICOVER will be under $100.

AMERICOVER 2010, the World Series of Philately show and annual convention sponsored and organized by the American First Day Cover Society, will be held Aug. 6-8 in the Chicago suburb of Oak Brook, Ill. The special AMERICOVER rate at the Chicago Marriott Oak Brook this year is $99.

”The AMERICOVER Committee is happy to once again have a hotel rate that our members can afford," said committee member and AFDCS Assistant Treasurer Foster Miller. "We hope that as many members as possible will stay at the show hotel."

"Part of the fun and enjoyment of attending a WSP show like AMERICOVER, is staying at the convention hotel to enjoy all the continuous philatelic activities packed into the three days of scheduled events," added AMERICOVER chairman Norman Elrod. "The American First Day Cover Society feels fortunate to have maintained such affordable room rates for this number of years, allowing cover and stamp collectors the opportunity to stay at the show hotel each year."

AMERICOVER 2010 will feature two bourses (commercial dealers and cachetmakers), a national-level exhibition of first day covers, a banquet, meetings, a youth table, a hospitality suite, an auction, seminars, a pre-show area tour and a post-show dinner event. A forum by a postal official involved with first day covers is also likely.

The Chicago Marriott Oak Brook features free parking, 32-inch LCD high-definition televisions in each room, a fitness center, indoor pool and whirlpool, a restaurant, and a Starbucks Cafe. It is across the street from the Oakbrook Center mall, 7-1/2 miles from the Brookfield Zoo, 9 miles from the Morton Arboretum, and 3 miles from the Graue Mill and Museum (a stop on the Underground Railroad, in addition to an operating grist mill with waterwheel).

The first AMERICOVER was held in 1992 in Columbus, Ohio. Since then, the show has been held in 12 states.
