 There are several BJD regional conventions in the USA which I found in my search. I don't know if any of these groups are well-established. I recommend you do a search on Google to find groups for your specific needs as a BJD collector. In addition, on-line fora such as Den Of Angels (highly recommended and supremely well-moderated) and Zone of Zen (boardhost.com layout) can offer a great deal of information about this type of event worldwide. Click on either logo below to go to the site of your choice. Both require registration.
