Over 37,000 request tickets for “Antiques Roadshow”

June 12, 2012 by  

More than 37,000 people have requested tickets for the upcoming filming of the episodes of the PBS hit television program, “Antiques Roadshow” that will be filmed in Cincinnati next month.

“Antiques Roadshow” has been nominated for an Emmy award a total of nine times, and the public’s desire to be a part of these episodes is higher than average. Unfortunately, only 6,000 individuals received tickets for the filming, as space and time is limited.

Each hopeful is permitted to bring two pieces to the show to be viewed and appraised by antique experts. The PBS series, which is the highest-rated series on the station, features individuals as they tell of family treasures, heirlooms and items found at yard sales, auctions, or antiques tucked away in an attic or basement for years. Antique experts examine the items and reveal a bit of history about it, evaluating it and letting the owner know if it is truly an antique and how much it might be worth.

Large events, such as the filming of “Antiques Roadshow,” in and around the Cincinnati area, draw in a large number of tourists from across the United States. While events like this often use banner printing and other printing services, Cincinnati print companies might also expect to draw in business from local companies and business running special promotions during the event.

The three episodes of “Antiques Roadshow” are scheduled for filming on Saturday, July 21 at the Duke Energy Convention Center. These episodes will be a part of the show’s 17th season and are scheduled to air next year.
