International Convention

June 28–July 1, 2018
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Engage and exchange with other Kiwanians. Gather tools you will use once you’re back with your club. And make sure your club has a voice: Vote for the future leaders of Kiwanis and weigh in on proposed amendments.

Kiwanis conventions aren’t all about business. Experience inspiring speakers and entertainers, and purchase tickets for additional meal and fellowship events. Of course, fellowship is foremost during the convention. Come meet old friends and make new ones in Las Vegas!

The convention will take place June 28–July 1, 2018 and includes exhibits, education and general sessions. All events will take place at the Paris and Bally’s hotels. These two separate hotels are connected.
