“Very few shows can last for 72-years,” said Bart Hall, Producer of the Fred Hall Show. “The only way to last this long is to take every exhibitor seriously, treat their business as you would your own and always give your attendees exactly what you promise. Part of our business model is to always give a family a full days worth of family entertainment. Kids 15 and under are always free at a Fred Hall Show.”

“We work very hard to make certain that each year’s show is as good or better than the last one,” said Hall. “People think this is just a seasonal event but we literally work 365 days a year to provide what we feel is the best product on the planet. We hope everyone will come on down to the Long Beach Convention Center, March 7-11, 2018 and experience the Fred Hall Show for themselves. We’ll see ya at the show.”
