WASHINGTON, DC - The Daguerreian Society, one of the country's foremost photo historical organizations, will hold a meeting next year in conjunction with the annual spring D.C. Antique Photo Show, announced  Diverse Markets Management (DMM), a D.C. firm in its fifth year of managing the show which will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2013.

The Daguerreian Society participation follows the March 2012 expansion of the show to include a second sales room devoted to postcard exhibitors. The combined 30th annual D.C. Antique Photo and Postcard Shows will be held 8:30 AM to 4 PM, Sunday, March 10, 2013, at the Holiday Inn Rosslyn, 1900 N. Ft. Myer Dr., Arlington, VA 22209.  "The Daguerreian Society will have a meal, brief business meeting and mini-auction" at the hotel on Saturday March 9, Society Vice President Sally Anyan wrote recently in the society's quarterly publication. The auction will be headed by Greg French, a long time photo show exhibitor and a society board member.

 Anyan said the meeting would be "a mini-event for those unable to go to Paris and Bry-sur-Marne" in France where the society will hold its twenty-fifth annual meeting later in 2013 to celebrate Louis Daguerre, the French inventor of one of the first photographic processes, named after him, the daguerreotype.        

"Daguerreotype dealers have always been a significant presence in the photos show and we're expecting even better representation this year with the collaboration," said DMM Show Manager Tom Rall.

"I expect we'll have to expand the show again," Rall continued, noting that additional space was reserved following the show expansion in March. "The combined shows generated significant reported sales so we're also expecting more postcard exhibitors too."

The DC Antique Photo and Postcard Shows open with a 8:30 AM $25 preview admission and continue 10 AM to 4 PM with a $10 public admission. The hotel is walking distance from Georgetown and only one block from the Rosslyn station on Metro's orange and blue lines.
