    Based on feedback and in the spirit of our 2015 Ken®vention department store theme, we have decided to make a change to the 2015 Ken®vention guest room sales policies.

What’s changing? Well first, we will no longer have a “Sales Room”.  Instead, we are creating sales floors made up of different “departments” by expanding guest room sales to last the duration of the 2015 Ken®vention.  Guest room sales are a fun and anticipated event, and the 2015 Ken®vention is trying to make it easier for everyone.  To better serve the conventioneers and dealers with this change, the 2015 Ken®vention has developed a new policy for guest room sales. 

So what’s new? First, we will be expanding our advertising to include four public sales day time periods—Wednesday evening and Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoons with no fees associated to the public to come and shop!  Dealers will no longer have to sign a contract, pay fees for tables or helpers, move and set-up merchandise and most importantly…can choose to be open when they want to be!  This change also opens up our dedicated event space for the Friday dinner and frees up volunteer availability.  This policy will be enforced and we request that you carefully read the following policy guidelines.

Guest Room Sale Regulations:

  • Anyone wishing to sell from his/her guest room will be given a window tag which we are calling a “Department Tag”. The Department Tag is $25 and must be hung on your room window to participate in guest room sales. You must check into your room first. You can pick-up your Department Tag and have your room number placed on it. This tag will be hung in your window to indicate to shoppers that you are “Open for Business!”
  • Tags are valid from Monday September 14 through Saturday September 19, 2015. Department Tags will be available to pre-order or may be purchased at registration.  Your tag needs to be displayed in your window before you start selling from your guest room and the display policy will be strictly enforced. 
  • Having the guest room sales registered will also allow the 2015 Ken®vention to clearly point out all the guest rooms available to shoppers.
  • Selling from your guest room is offered on a volunteer basis. You do not have to be a dealer.  No conventioneer needs to feel that they can’t participate because they only have a few items or have never participated in guest room Sales before.
  • Guest room sales will be limited to registered 2015 Ken®vention conventioneers only.
  • You may not post anything but the official Department Tag on your guest room window.
  • Guest room sale notices may be posted on the bulletin board in the lobby.
  • Only one Department Tag per guest room will be given to registered 2015 Ken®vention conventioneer(s) participating in guest room sales.

·         Arrangements can be made to accommodate conventioneers planning on selling from their guest room prior to the official start of the convention. Please email if you are planning on arriving early to sell from your guest room.  We advise that you pre-order the Department Tag if you are planning to sell before registration begins.


·         We need to group the departments in our “store” together as much as possible.  Please email Lisa Koppelman-Elliott prior to August 1, 2015 if you plan to participate in guest room selling at:

Please remember to return form by August 1, 2015!
