The 2015 Ken®vention will be held in Chicago, Illinois, at the SHERATON CHICAGO O’HARE AIRPORT HOTEL, from September 17, 2015, through September 19, 2015.

As an official conventioneer (and employee) we are certain you will enjoy joining Barbie® and Ken® as they open 1950's newest brand luxury department store in Chicago--Carson-Roberts. You’ll visit different departments in our store through our daily operations (that will surely bring back memories and your inner vintage fashionista).  A GREAT way to become involved with our department managers is to browse the 2015 Ken®vention website and Yahoo group (so please join!)  Your adventure really begins as an attendee of the 2015 Ken®vention…when our department counters are open for business.

In our fourth year, the Ken® doll will accompany 150 conventioneers on this exclusive adventure.  The convention events officially start on Thursday evening with The Grand Opening Welcome Reception, then it's business as usual with The Men’s Department Trunk Show Dinner Event Friday evening, and finally, The Women’s Department Showroom Couture Dinner Event Saturday evening.  We’ve planned fabulous food, souvenirs and fantastic entertainment and events!

While at convention enjoy browsing our Cosmetic Counter Workshops which are fun, informative and will make you feel beautiful! Test your luck in our Receiving Dock Raffle Room and the Sales Audit Department Casino.  Showcase your creative side in our Showroom Competition and make sure to join us in the Fine Jewelry Department for our Live Auction to benefit Be Like Brit.  The Live Auction will feature items for every budget. 100% of the proceeds from the Live Auction will be donated to the charity.

Join us for an extraordinary convention adventure, as we showcase the height of post war fashion with the ladies "New Look"--basques, petticoats, corolla skirts, pointed shoes, bright-coloured floral and striped prints, wasp-waist suits with straight skirts, strapless sheath dresses, cocktail dresses and rock crystal embroidery.  And for our gentlemen, the "Bold Look"--wide shoulders, broad lapels, turn-ups and an emphasis on bold, coordinated accessories.

Registration includes: Welcome event and two dinners.  With entertainment, activities, access to the raffle room, sales floor, competition room, guest speaker, live auction, silent auction and our late night lounge.  There will be table gifts from the convention, a chance to win centerpiece exclusives and of course, a souvenir Ken® doll.  You also have the option to participate in competition, workshops and the opportunity to be a table host.

The 2015 Ken®vention is sponsored by the He's A Doll! Club. We invite you to join us for Haberdashery!
