ISC2024 Memphis FLASH #1

IBRBS is throwing a party!

All members are invited to the ISC2024 Memphis, TN on
April 25-28, 2024 at the Renasant Convention Center in downtown Memphis,
255 N Main St, Memphis, TN 38103

You may have heard that IBRBS is throwing another party! All IBRBS members are invited to attend the ISC2024 Memphis, our next International Santa Celebration. Planning is well underway to bring you one of the best and maybe the largest Christmas Conventions ever. Mark your calendars for April 25-28, 2024 at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Memphis, TN. As has been our history, our brothers and sisters in the Christmas Community who may not be members are also welcome to attend this terrific event.

For the first time, the ISC will be three full days of exciting camaraderie and fun, as well as learning workshops, the ever popular Vendor Showcase, perhaps a Fashion Show, receptions, awards, celebrations, and let’s not forget some terrific entertainment. We are also pleased to announce that all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) are included for Friday and Saturday, with breakfast and lunch served on Thursday, and a buffet breakfast on Sunday morning. Thursday night is the perfect time to get to know Memphis and dine at the many restaurants on Main St, Beale St, and several Concierge hotels. We have rented the two Mississippi River Boats, each holding about 150 people, for a 2.5-hour river cruise and a buffet BBQ restaurant. This will be a separate event ticket with limited availability. As we did in Atlanta, we are planning top-notch entertainment for Friday evening’s dinner, and our Saturday Gala promises to be a very special holiday event. Wednesday, April 25th is arrival day so you can be fresh and ready for an early morning start to the Convention on Thursday morning. You may wish to look into staying through Sunday night so you can attend the Sunday morning Christmas parade down historic music street, Beale St, but we have made arrangements with the hotel for facilities to allow changes of outfits if you have already checked out.

The first in a continuing series of ISC Flash announcements, we will be publishing them regularly to keep you up-to-date with the information you need to plan your visit with your fellow Christmas performers. Online registration is planned to begin by February 15th, 2023 and we hope to arrange hotel room booking to start about the same time, and without any charges until April 2024, at the convenient downtown Sheraton Hotel. This host hotel, with special rates for attendees, is located at 250 N Main St with a sky bridge over Main St, connecting the host hotel to the 300,000 sq ft Renasant Center, which has convenient parking at $10 per day underneath. Note: We are also looking for an underwriter to will help you protect your investment by offering unable-to-attend refund insurance. More on all this soon.

Until online registration begins, you may take advantage of our pre-booking $50 deposit link where your deposit will receive a 40% bonus ($20) for those who complete the event booking will receive a $70 credit.

We look forward to seeing you in Memphis at ISC2024!
