The annual convention, held in the north one year and in the south in alternate years, consists of excellent lecture/demonstrations, workshops, critiques, seminars, exhibits and dinner banquets where attendees can enjoy bonsai fellowship. A large vendor area is always a highlight of the convention with items from throughout California and the United States are   for sale.
