Group Specials

If you are responsible for group travel, wish to initiate a bus tour to the Bead&Button Show, are a retail store or bead society/guild, we can help make it very easy for you. Once you have reserved your coach/bus, contact us for more information and we'll help with the rest.

We'll badge your group ahead of time so no one has to wait at the box office! We can even supply door prizes to give away during the bus ride and everyone on your tour will receive a bag of jewelry-related goodies. 

Parking is readily available for all motor coaches only a short distance from the convention center. We can assist you with this aspect and any housing needs you may have for your group.
