Are you interested in collecting and learning more about glass but don’t know where to start?

Or perhaps you are a seasoned collector looking to take full advantage of your visit to Tacoma and connect with local collectors, artists, and fellow glass lovers.

We invite you to join us for our one-of-a-kind, curated Collectors Tour before the conference begins!

This tour will include private visits to homes of local collectors, some truly Northwest experiences, curator-led tours of museum exhibitions, and VIP seating at all conference presentations. Activities kick off Sunday morning, May 15th, and while the official tour concludes on Wednesday afternoon prior to the Conference Kick-Off, you will have access to events and activities throughout the conference!

Each Collector’s Tour registration includes one (1) Full Conference pass and admission to all special events including the Pre-Conference Reception and Closing Night Party. 

Hotel accommodation includes an 8-night stay for up to 2 people (King or 2 Queens) from Saturday, May 14, 2022 through Sunday, May 22, 2022 at the Hotel Murano Provenance in Tacoma, WA.
