September 9, 10 and 11
Experience the glamour of Hollywood right here in the Midwest during the 2014 Geneva Convention September 9, 10 and 11 held at the luxurious Grand Geneva Resort and Spa in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
Catch a sneak preview of new fall films. Learn about new equipment and products. All at an event where you can network with your fellow exhibitors, vendors and studio executives in an unrushed, casual atmosphere.
Where Hollywood Meets the Heartland…be a part of the Midwest’s Largest Convention for exhibitors, vendors and studios.
Geneva Convention features an impressive array of attendees from all aspects of the Motion Picture industry and is highlighted by a Trade Show of nearly 100 booth spaces, Variety Children’s Charity Golf Outing, Gala Awards Dinner, several prominent seminars and studio presentations, and the annual Midwest Hall of Fame enshrinement celebration.
Best of all, proceeds from Geneva Convention support our very important industry charity, the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneer Fund.
