“The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center’s premier 23.200 mÂ² hall recently became available for both the 2014 and 2015 fall shows, so we decided to make the move,” said Colette Fairchild, the show’s director. “Moving to one floor makes the show much easier to navigate, while allowing us more flexibility for our special interest areas such as our education stations and speciality pavilions.”
