FIRST TIMERS PROGRAM Don’t miss it! If you’ve never attended a Barbie® Doll Collectors Convention, plan on attending the First Timers Program. We will fill you in on the ins and outs of Convention. It’s a great place to meet friends you will keep for a lifetime. You can learn more about it and other scheduled Programs here.
TABLE GIFTS At each meal event, the Convention Committee has some wonderful gifts and surprises planned for every Conventioneer. Some Conventioneers also partake in a tradition of giving gifts to their tablemates at each meal event as well. These ‘table gifts’ are entirely optional and driven by individual choice. They are by no means mandatory or expected of every Conventioneer. Should you elect to present your tablemates with gifts, we are requiring Table Host and/or their guests to not place table dolls or non-Convention Gifts on the top of tables on FRIDAY night, and that you refrain from interfering with the table settings placed by the Hotel and the centerpieces at each table.
ROOM SALES / SHOPPING / SIGNS Room shopping will be open beginning Saturday morning before the Convention and ending on Thursday morning August 1, 2024 at 2:00am PST. We will attempt to group the majority of people selling from their rooms on several floors as a convenience for shoppers as well as other guests of the Hotel. Check the bulletin boards on the sales floors to see who is selling where. Each registered Conventioneer that has confirmed they will be participating in Room Sales will receive one Room Sales Door Tag during Registration. This tag is displayed on your private Hotel room door handle, signaling that you are open for business! See the Room Sales page on how to participate and to reserve your Sales Door Tag prior to May 15, 2024. Room Sales advertising will be allowed starting July 20, 2024 on the 2024 Convention Facebook group. Please see posting etiquette and other policies concerning Room Sales in accordance with the Hotel on the Room Sales page.
BE KIND Our Volunteer / Chair teams are 100% Volunteers. We have worked VERY hard to make this Convention an enjoyable experience for you because, like you, we love our hobby. Our Volunteers are from many doll clubs and from the local charities who are involved with the Convention. Rest assured that we will do our best to meet your needs as our guests.
