The International Association of Pastel Societies 2022 Convention

The IAPS Board of Directors is excited to announce that the plans for the 2022 IAPS Convention are moving forward. 
Much has changed in the world since we were together, and as a result, the way we will go about registering for the 2022 convention will be a little different. The convention registration process will be released in stages. 
Registration fee will be fully refundable until April 15, 2022. 
Stage 1 – November 1, 2021
Convention schedule showing workshops and demos, events and activities will be on our website
Stage 2 – November 15, 2021 – Convention Registration will open.
Payment for registrants and registered companions will be accepted.

IAPS will be requiring that all registrants, companions, instructors and vendors have proof of vaccination to register. During the registration process, you will be asked to upload an image (.pdf or .jpg) of proof of vaccination.
Stage 3 – Lodging:      
On November 22, Hotel Albuquerque will open for reservations for the convention dates with a 4-night minimum. You MUST be registered for the convention in order to book a room at the Hotel Albuquerque. On November 24, reservations for fewer nights will be accepted. 
Hotel Albuquerque has limited room capacity to accommodate the number of convention attendees, however, their sister facility on the campus, Hotel Chaco will also have rooms available for convention attendees. There are also dozens of other excellent lodging options. We encourage you to visit the website. Under the “places to stay” tab are numerous lodging options. 
Stage 4:
January 4, 2022 – Workshop and Demo Classes Open 
Be sure to review the convention schedule showing workshops and demos, events and activities on our website. 
Saturday Night Banquet tickets: Banquet tickets are limited and will go on sale on January 4, 2022. 
If you have any questions, please contact Red Weber at We can’t wait to get together again and celebrate our love of the fine art medium of pastel!
All the best,
The IAPS Team
