From the convention staff:
PNW BJD Expo, April 26-28, 2018 in Seattle, WA. The Expo has a very exciting theme in a very convenient new location! It was hard to leave the beautiful resort in Suquamish, but construction is under way so we chose to find a location closer to travel hubs. The DoubleTree Hotel at the Seattle Airport was perfect.
Here is a peek at what’s exciting at the 2018 Expo:
Theme: Gatsby -the 1920’s in the United States where a time of social changes, prohibition, silent movies, gangsters, speakeasies, jazz, airplanes, cars, and a modern kitchen that included a refrigerator. As amazing as these events were … just think about architecture and the clothes! Let your imagination run wild and be sure to enter one of the contests!
