Final preparations in place for NCA conference 2019

Final preparations are now in place for The National Costumers Association convention, which is taking place from 18 – 21 July, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Kansas City, USA

This year’s NCA convention is focusing on education, with a wide range of different educational classes covering everything from airbrushing and different types of face paint right through to cosplay, store displays and pattern making, for those who create their own costumes.

A social media class will be led by Tyson Murphy (owner of A to Z Theatrical Shop) while a class on  the benefits of basic balloon art and the ease of upselling balloons in your store will be run by Marion Bradley (NCA president and owner of Discount Costumes).

Other classes focus on mascot restoration, design, how to use 3D Tinsley Transfers and the customer’s experience.

The National Costumers Association is a professional organisation promoting the artistic, historical, educational, and social nature of costuming. It encourages ethical business standards and creativity, offering a wide selection of member benefits in addition to a Buyer’s Group.

The education schedule can be seen here.

There is still time to register to attend the annual costume convention, which is open to NCA members only.
