Come join us as we celebrate the fabulous world of the Movies as seen through the creative lens of R. John Wright! The dates are September 7-9 and the exciting new venue is the elegant HILTON HOTEL in downtown Albany, New York.

Albany and its historic architecture have been the setting for numerous films over the years. The spectacular, fully-restored, Palace Theatre - just a short walk from the hotel - is collaborating with us to bring you classic Hollywood films as they were meant to be seen!

We will also be retaining many of the features that you look forward to at an RJW convention. There will be a morning excursion to our facility in Vermont where our team of artisans will once again be happy to chat with you and show you every facet of how our products are made. John and Susan will also be conducting tours of the RJW Design Studio where a whole new group of items are currently being developed. Every visit to the R. John Wright workshop will give you a newfound appreciation for all that goes into making our dolls and animals.

Back at the Hilton the fun will continue with a variety of movie-themed ticketed events with souvenirs for collectors of every persuasion. A convention highlight will be a gala luncheon event - Hooray for Hollywood! - with a costume competition! The RJW Salesroom will again feature rare archival editions and exclusive vintage accessories and materials not found anywhere else.
