Things are happening!   We’ve already got a record setting number of vendor tables spoken for and new vendors are continuing to sign up.  Registrations are coming in steadily.  The anticipation is building.  The early numbers are exciting!

2.Registration is continuing.
3.Model Registration Forms are on line.
4.Another new block of hotel rooms is available!

1.We posted this last month and the response has been positive, So here’s more shameless begging for display only models!

We’re serious about packing the Model Room with Models!

Be sure to  remember   - 1 free raffle ticket for each display only model. 

For more information and details check the convention web page.
1.Registration is continuing.

The Journal add has kicked in.  Registration is picking up and so are the Tee-shirt sales!  The best way to make sure you get a Tee-shirt in your size is to preorder now! 

Also here’s a reminder that convention registration price increase takes effect on June 15th

1.Model Registration Forms

The forms are available for download from the convention webpage!  We know some of you want to get a head start on the paperwork.  Now you can!

1.Another Block of Hotel Rooms

We are now working on filling our 5th hotel!  We have another hotel on line.  This time it's the Chattanoogan, which is two blocks away, directly behind the Convention Center.  A link to on-line reservations is on the website


Or you can call the hotel at (800)-619-0018 between 7am and 11pm Eastern Time.  Be sure to mention the IPMS National Convention when making your reservation.
1.Trophy sponsorships

We are very appreciative of those who have sponsored trophy packages to date.  You can visit the link at the convention webpage to see who has sponsored what and also what categories remain to be sponsored.  Plenty of categories remain to be sponsored.  If your group has not yet sponsored a package please consider doing so!


A trophy sponsorship form is attached for your consideration.

We’re sworn to secrecy……  But read the fine print at:

1.Volunteers Needed

Tennessee is the Volunteer State.  Putting on an IPMS Nationals is a big job and we're going to need help.  Many people wait till they arrive at the convention to volunteer and that is fine.  If you help for at least two 2-hour shifts you'll qualify for our free awesome T-Shirt.  Letting us know ahead of time insures getting a shirt in your size!  Please visit this link to volunteer early.
