Folks open their door for attendees to come browse, shop, wheel & deal while renewing acquaintances and making new friends. Registrants and dealers display their lamps, parts and items for sale in their rooms during this truely unique experience. This activity is the main social activity and the core of the Gathering.

  • Welcoming Thursday Evening Reception.
  • Educational seminars on Friday and Saturday cover various subjects.
  • Display Room The Display Room is devoted to different Aladdin themes and usually shows the rare and scarce Aladdin items and often with short "how to tell" talks.
