Ventriloquist Convention or Not?!

I have received a few emails asking me if I thought going to the Vent Haven ConVENTion was something they should do because they are new into ventriloquism and were not sure if they would be welcomed. My answer to them was if you love the art of ventriloquism, in any capacity, then you MUST make the journey to the ConVENTion.

I attended my first ConVENTion quite a number of years ago and was not a ventriloquist but a collector of figures. I was made to feel right at home by everyone that I met. I literally knew no one but within a few minutes I had become friends with folk I had never met before. Today those same folks who first friended me are still close friends of mine and we speak all the time.

I have made the trek to ConVENTion and in the past 8 years only missed one and that was because of a scheduling conflict. I happened to be in Vegas at the time of the ConVENTion.

So if you are new to vent or seasoned I say spend the money and make the trip. Even my wife is going again this year. Can’t wait to meet you all there.
