When brothers David and Peter Mancuso decided to get together to
promote and manage a local antiques show in 1987 they could not have imagined what this
venture would lead to in the years that followed.
Mancuso Show Management started in a back corner of David's antiques shop that is housed in a
19th century church in historic New Hope, Bucks County, PA. The partners are now the
promoters of seven major national and international quilting and textile arts festivals held
across the country, along with high quality antiques shows and other events.
Tree of Life

Who is Mancuso Show Management?
David and Peter Mancuso used the strengths gained
in their vastly differing professional backgrounds in this new undertaking
of show management.
David, who had always been self-employed in the antiques business, had
exhibited at many shows and learned the ins and outs of running a show.
Peter, who came from a public sector background in the New York City Police
Department, brought to the newly formed company expertise in the fields
of organizing and overall facility use and security.
It is hard to believe that business has grown so
greatly in the past 24 years. What started in confined quarters, has now
expanded into offices in New Hope, PA with a staff of Event Coordinators, a Design Team,
and an Events Set-up Crew that combine to make this management company a major
force in the public events industry.
