2017 Convention

2017 Convention

‘Set Sail For Columbus’


Join us! ‘Set Sail For Columbus’!  We have many enjoyable events planned for you who set sail for Columbus. Events  such as an optional Thursday outing of places in and around Columbus (described in detail in later correspondence), the Thursday night ice cream & cake social time, Tops & Bottoms, Bluetique, Sales Extravaganza, Regional meetings and the Auction. This year we have scheduled three great educational presentations: Rare & Unusual, Educational Committee presentation on small pieces of wash sets, such as razor boxes, sponge dishes, soap holders, hot water pitchers, tooth brush holders, etc., and a third presentation still in the planning stages.

Making new friends and renewing old friendships are probably the best part of the convention. There is nothing better than to gather together with 200+ other folks who have the same passion for collecting as you have. Networking is a great part of the convention. The buying and selling opportunities are wonderful, but so is the exchange of information among attendees. Long-time collectors are more than willing to answer questions from other members. If you are looking for a certain pattern or you collect certain body shapes, this is an outstanding time to get the word out to members who attend from all over the world. Most are more than willing to help others in the quest for that one certain piece.

The 2017 convention registration packets will be mailed to you in late April. Please make plans to ‘Set Sail For Columbus’, join in the fun and be part of the convention. The dates are July 20 through July 22, 2017. The convention will be at the Crowne Plaza Columbus North in Columbus, Ohio. The hotel property is located outside of the downtown area, just off I-71 on the north side of town.
