In room trading allows individual collectors and businesses (who do participate in the convention area during the day) an opportunity to set up a display in their hotel room at night and invite collectors to come in to trade or buy various items.  This is a popular part of many west coast shows that keep the event going late into the night.

At CPCC, our ballroom event is the focal point during day time hours.  Vendors and collectors are invited to purchase table space within the show to sell and trade their collectibles. However, during the evening hours when the show is closed, we take the event back into the hotel. There will be special evening events that will continue to take the show through the late hours of the night.

To be eligible to open your hotel room for evening in room trading, you MUST purchase and operate at least 1 table within the main ballroom during show hours. Those eligible participants will receive a door tag that will authorize your room to be active and open during approved evening in room trading hours.  Those failing to follow event procedures by not displaying the special tag on their room door will only be able to shop as a guest in authorized rooms.
