Barbie™ Diamond Jubilee!

Welcome to Barbie™ Diamond Jubilee!
from Tampa Bay Pink Pirates
in conjunction with the
National Collectors Convention Steering Committee

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the very Heart of America to celebrate the teenage fashion model that has held our heart for 60 years – the Barbie® doll!  Follow her journey from her early years of modeling in Willows, Wisconsin, through her vast array of fabulous and fantastic careers, her glamorous fashions, celebrating in true royal style with all her friends and family. We have planned something fit for a Queen to enjoy.

We are delighted to announce that Robert Best will be designing the convention doll in 2019!! 

We look forward to welcoming you all to Kansas City in 2019 as we celebrate Barbie® Diamond Jubilee!

Convention Hotel

Sheraton Crown Center
2345 McGee St, Kansas City, MO 64108


The hotel we've selected was a favorite from 2008, now fully remodeled in the past few years, and re-branded as a Sheraton.  The Sheraton has the added benefit of being part of the Crown Center – the same campus where the Hallmark Headquarters and Visitor Center is located.  The Crown Center also houses an aquarium, a shopping mall, food court and several restaurants.  All of which can be reached by an indoor walkway.  New to the hotel is immediate proximity to a free RideKC street car stop which offers easy transportation to even more Kansas City destinations along its route.
