The IPMS/USA National Convention

Nats 2020 Gallery

Based on a member suggestion, we have created a page for members to submit images of their (planned) National Contest entries. This gives members an opportunity to show their hard work and creativity for models that would have been brought to San Marcos this year. You'll find the posting information in the Forums. You may submit images and info for any intended 2020 entry. This gallery is for display purposes only, no judging will take place.

2021 National Convention in Las Vegas

We are pleased and excited to announce the launch of the 2021 IPMS/USA National Convention website!   We invite you to visit and see what we have in store for you.

We're looking forward to welcoming you to the Rio Hotel Resort and Convention Center in the heart of the fabulous City of Las Vegas.  With over 2,000 all-suite rooms and almost 70,000 square feet of luxurious convention space, The Very Best of the West promises to be a National Convention experience of a lifetime. 

2020 IPMS/USA National Convention Cancelled

The following is a joint announcement from the San Marcos 2020 Convention Leadership team and the IPMS USA Executive Board.

We jointly appreciate all the feedback we received regarding this year's convention. We've taken your comments and concerns into careful consideration, while maintaining an ongoing dialogue and negotiation with the Embassy Suites convention center in San Marcos. These negotiations have been proceeding carefully due to the significant financial exposure that IPMS would be subject to if we simply decided to cancel the convention unilaterally.

National Convention Update

 The IPMS/USA Executive Board and the 2020 National Convention Planning Committee are still moving forward with planning and on-time execution of the 2020 convention. We are well aware of the plethora of challenges ahead of us in the next 90 days. There are many more unknowns than there are knowns at the moment. However, with the facts on-hand we feel the convention can still be held.

COVID-19 Update!

The convention team is still moving forward with planning for the 2020 convention. While we are well aware of all the social distancing and quarantine policies in place around the country these are temporary in nature and we are continuing with the assumption that by late July these will be restrictions will be lifted. The planning team will continue to track this issue closely.
