The 8th International Conference in Chicago was a great success! 90 collectors, dealers and guests from 8 countries attended the Chicago conference at the Renaissance Hotel. What made it a particularly successful four day event were the superb speakers on all things “canes”, combining the option of attending cane workshops and cane swaps in the same afternoons, and having Tradewinds Antiques hold their fall auction in conjunction with the conference.
The Seventh International Cane Collector’s Conference was held May 26-30, 2010 in Milano, Italy.
