Top Conklin leaders and division Product Specialists will be on hand in and out of the workshops and General Sessions to answer your questions and share with you key information on helping you run your Conklin business. Take advantage of this one-on-one time and be prepared by taking notes. Depending on how you organize your information, a highlighter or different colored pen might be helpful to set apart certain workshops you plan on attending.

National Convention is Conklin's largest annual event. You will meet a lot of people while networking with other Conklin Independent Distributors. Make sure you bring plenty of business cards so you can keep in touch with important contacts.

Hint: Your lanyard, which will contain your name tag and convention schedule, is a great place to stash extra business cards to hand out during National Convention. Simply replenish your business cards each morning before heading out of your room.

Many Conklin Independent Distributors rely on their smart phones or cell phones to conduct their day-to-today business. Remember to bring your chargers and cables for these and other devices in which you utilize to run your business, including digital cameras, tablets, and laptops, among others.

Independent Distributors and their guests are responsible for their own meals. The Branson Convention Center will be offering a la carte food service at each meal time on the second floor concourse and on the first floor pre-function area outside the Taneycomo Ballroom. (See the convention center's floor plan.) Branson Landing, just steps away from the Hilton Hotel and Branson Convention Center, offers visitors a variety of casual and fine dining options. Remember, cash, checks, major credit cards, and PAC accounts are accepted at the Conklin National Convention Sales Center.

clothingClothing and attire

Remember, the dress code for all General Sessions and workshops is business attire. The President's Club Dinner and Gala Banquet is business dress or formal attire (suits or tuxes for men, dressy pant suits or dresses for ladies).

To ensure each and every person's success and to maintain an effective work environment during National Convention, please take note that your personal grooming/hygiene habits project a professional image. Freshly laundered clothing, tidy hair, and an attempt to avoid any strong scents will ensure a productive environment where everyone attending National Convention can focus on taking their business to the next level. The hotel does provide coin-operated laundry facilities, however, they might not be available as your conference schedule allows. It is recommended to bring an appropriate number of clothing options that will last throughout National Convention, including extra clothes for emergencies.

While we utilize the meeting spaces at the Branson Convention Center, temperatures can somewhat vary from room to room in this corporate meeting facility. To ensure your comfort during workshops and General Sessions, bring along a light jacket or sweater.


It is important to bring all your medications with you to National Convention that you take throughout the day. This includes any prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, cough drops, and other health items, such as tissues and hand sanitizer. Don't forget to stock up on your LIFETRACK® Essential and Targeted Nutrition Products-they tend to sell out fast in the Sales Center at National Convention. If you need to take your medication during workshops or General Sessions, please carry them with you and have a bottle of water on hand so you don't miss out on the valuable information provided during these convention events. Your health is extremely important to us!

Attendance Policy Regarding ChildrenAttendance Policy Regarding Children

The policy regarding National Convention will be consistent with the policy of all Conklin's corporate training programs: Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to attend any part of National Convention, including the President's Club Dinner, Friday night entertainment, and the Gala Banquet. This policy is in place to allow for the best National Convention experience for everyone. Children 13 and older who would like to attend General Sessions, workshops, and product exhibits must have a paid registration/name badge in order to gain entry to these events.

For liability, safety, and security reasons, the Hiltons of Branson & Convention Canter have requested that no children be left unattended in sleeping rooms or public spaces throughout the facility, including elevators and/or escalators.
