The New York International Numismatic Convention announced that Kevin Foley has stepped down as Bourse Chairman of NYINC. Commenting, NYINC President Mike Dunigan stated, “NYINC would like to thank Kevin and express our appreciation for the 23 years he has served as Bourse Chairman. His knowledge of the hobby, show management experience and sound advice were important assets during his long and successful tenure. He leaves the organization in very healthy condition. The convention has more than survived Covid-19 and has successfully transitioned to its new venue in New York City [The Barclay InterContinental on East 48th Street]. The dealer bourse and auction venues are virtually sold out for the coming January 2023 show. We are pleased that Kevin has agreed to remain with the NYINC in the capacity of Special Bourse Consultant through the NYINC 2023 convention.”
Continuing, Mr. Dunigan announced the appointment of Paul Russell as the new Convention Chairman, stating: “Paul brings a strong set of organizational and management skills that are ideally suited to the future of the largest and most prestigious international numismatic event held in the Unites States. We look forward to working with Paul to update and modernize the convention’s internal and external communications and other information systems.”
In closing, Mr. Dunigan noted that, “aside from the announced changes, the officers and core management team of the NYINC remain unchanged, and we do not anticipate anything but a smooth and seamless transition as we move forward. The dealer bourse for the 2023 show is virtually sold out, and the auction schedule is completely booked with more auction slots sold than any other time in our history. As in years past, we will be distributing hotel block pricing and availability in the very near future and expect the Barclay to prove to be the accommodating and excellent hosts they were in 2022.
“The NYINC global community includes a vast number of longtime auction and numismatic firms, collectors, numismatic authorities, academic entities and other professionals. We love this hobby and value this community as its lifeblood. We look forward to our 2023 event as our finest ever.”
Effective immediately, and in conjunction with the management change, all contact information for NYINC related matters have been updated. You can contact Paul Russell via email.
Full NYINC details, including the schedule of events, hotel reservation information and a listing of booth holders can be also found on the convention website.
In 2021, the Convention moved its venue to the the Barclay InterContinental.
