Countdown to the next FUN Convention

Count Down to the Next FUN Show

Welcome to the home page for the 18th Summer FUN Convention. This years theme is Raising the Next Generation of Numismatists.

The 18th Summer FUN Convention is rapidly approaching and now I have some info on what you can expect at Summer FUN 2024. Tthe U.S Mint has confirmed they will be at Summer FUN. If you look at coin release schedule the 2024 Morgan and Peace dollars are set to be released two hours after our opening ceremony. The Piedmont Gold Panner will also be onsite. We will have a total of 4 Educational Programs two on Thursday and two on Friday. You can review them on the Summer FUN convention Tab. Bob Russell is also working on getting a nice selection Educational Displays. As he receives the confirmations of the subject matter they will be listed with descriptions.

FUN will be running a shuttle bus service from the parking lot in the back of the convention center to the front door of the WA1 hall on the West Concourse. On Thursday and Friday the shuttle will run every 20 minutes from 8:00 am to 7:30 pm. On Saturday it will run every 20 minutes from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm. The parking lot pickup point is the large lobby facility in the center of the convention center. Look for the FUN representative in the ORANGE shirt.

If you are a member of one the many coin clubs in Florida FUN can assist your club in paying for a charter bus to attend Summer FUN. Just complete the Club Bus Trip to FUN Application and return it to FUN BEFORE June 1st.

If you are interested in having a booth at the 18th Summer FUN Convention you will need to contact Katie Williams. I have been informed the Budget, and Foreign/Ancient sections are SOLD OUT. Table choices in the regular section are rapidly selling out and table selection is limited. So contact Katie to reserve your location for Summer FUN. As a new feature for our dealers we have implemented a digital payment system. On the Summer FUN tab click on the Pay Bourse Fees link and submit your table fees directly to Katie. A 3% convenience fee will apply. For our dealers who utilize the FUN Pages to make periodic food runs for their tables you might want to consider getting a prepaid credit card for the pages to use at the convention centers food courts. The Orange County Convention Center is a CASHLESS facility.
