Collectibles conventions are events focused on classic, crazy and kooky collectibles of all kinds. These events may be centered around memorabilia, antiques, collectible toys, cards, figurines, media, coins, clothes, model cars, sports merchandise, games and any and all other miscellany which avid collectors might like to get their hands on. There really is no limit to some of the things that some potty punters like to collect!
These conventions offer the chance for many collectors to get together and share knowledge, stories and merchandise with famous names, frenetic fans and fellow collectors. There are usually chats, panels, discussions, question and answer sessions, collectibles launches, classes, swap shops, special events and plenty more fun for those who just can’t wait to get their forever collectibles fix!
Often, special guests may attend these conventions to answer questions, offer photographs and sign merchandise. These guests may include sports stars, actors, collectibles creators and more.
There are always chances at these conventions for passionate attendees to add to their existing wares; those who take part are able to pick up many different bits and bobs to bolster their collections. Conventions usually also offer guests the opportunity to buy something unique or special edition, which is a great opportunity for keen, dedicated and devoted fans who like to take home something rare and unusual.
Collectibles conventions usually are held in hotels or conference centers, last for two to three days and range widely in price, from free to around $40 per day. Often, they are combined with a focus on other facets of pop culture, including comics, anime, toys and games consoles – so there is always something for everyone!
