The swag swap is coming to our convention! This is a great way to show off your Pez creativity while swapping and adding awesome homemade and fun items to your collection!
For those who are participating in the Swag Swap, here are a few reminders on how it works:
-Items should be designed by you. We want to see your creativity! Candy packs, pins, buttons, postcards, business cards, stickers, patches… whatever item you make!
-Participant buttons will feature the swag swap logo, and will be available from Brian Jaskolski. Wearing the button throughout the convention signals to other participants that you have swag to swap. Just find another person wearing the button, introduce yourself, and swap your swag for one of theirs.
-Please no buying and selling of your items. This is meant to be a fun way to trade and get cool new items for your collection, and meet new people!
-If you are not participating, feel free to watch and see what people have designed! But please do not ask participants for swag if you have not made anything. It’s only fair
-After the convention I encourage you to post pictures online showing what you made and what you got. Show off all your swag!
Sorry for confusion on NEPEZCON registration. We got a bunch of cool things planned for our 20th Anniversary you will not want to miss. Hopefully we can answer your questions here. We have several different/special PEZ dispensers this year. They will NOT be for sale at the convention. All dispensers, t-shirts, pins, candy packs are available by pre-registration and are limited edition collectibles. We will offer walk in registration, but we can NOT guarantee what will be in that registration packet. If you think you are coming, pre-register asap.
Convention Registration-Attend packets. There are 2 types of attend registration. Basic & Deluxe.
The Basic package you get admission to all convention events, early Saturday show admission & our new Saturday evening “after party” with special games and prizes. Also included in the basic registration is a game package, game ticket, convention logo t-shirt, pin, candy pack and our own special NEPEZCON 20th Anniversary logo dispenser.
Deluxe package includes everything in the basic PLUS our very special, cool looking, EXCLUSIVE 2018 Anniversary “PEZ Collector Convention Exclusive” dispenser from PEZ. We saw the art work on the dispenser and package, it looks great and we can tell you it IS different than all other convention/gathering in 2018.
“Flashback Dispensers”- For our Anniversary we brought back some of our favorite, special PEZ convention dispensers from the past 20 years. We took these dispensers and updated them. We are calling them our “Flashback dispensers” and they are packaged in our cool looking “20th Anniversary Flashback” package. Sorry, they are limited to only one per attend convention registration package. Some of them are very limited, sure to sell out fast. First come, first serve.
Bus trip to the PEZ visitor center- It leaves the hotel Thursday morning and is limited to only 55 people-1 bus. Sorry, there will not be a behind the scenes tour this year. Bus Trip open to convention registrants only.
Dealer tables please reserve them as soon as possible-space IS limited.
Hotel reservations- to get the group rate please use our booking link on the web site or call the hotel directly at 203-358-8400. Group rate is $113 per night. Group perks include 25% discount on food, discounted parking and complementary guest room internet. The hotel also offers guests a free local shuttle.
Travel- check our web site for links. Flying in? We can tell you LGA is the closest, but there is also JFK & White Plains in NY, Newark in NJ or Bradley International in CT. If you are in NYC, you can take the Metro North train right into the Stamford Station. Car rentals, there is an Alamo office in the hotel plus Enterprise car rental in walking distance from the hotel if you want to rent a car.
Absentee packages will be mailed out after the convention. Anyone can order an absentee package, but in order to get the special Exclusive 2018 Anniversary “PEZ Collector Convention Exclusive” dispenser added on to their absentee package the registrant must have purchased a 2017 absentee or attend convention registration package.
Any other questions please leave a message on our NEPEZCON question line 843-868-1739 and we will get back to you. If you have a travel question, please leave a message and we will have our travel specialist return your call. See you at the 20th Annual Northeast PEZ Convention May 2-5th 2018
Watch Jan 1st for our preview of our 2018 Flashback Chick dispenser!
December 1st, watch for our preview of the NEPEZCON 2018 Flashback Snowman dispenser!
As you might have seen or heard on social media, PEZ will be offering us (NEPEZCON) and other conventions a “PEZ Collector Convention Exclusive” dispenser.
They put it out to vote for which “face” this special Emoji will have. “LOL’ing” was the winner according to PEZ.
So, watch for more details about this and our “early registration” that you will not want to miss!
(stay tuned, more to come)
