Roller Skating Association International


How do I check in for convention?

When you come to the event, you’ll visit the registration desk starting on Sunday morning. You’ll fill out a quick sheet telling us where you’re staying and an emergency contact number, pick up your delegate badge, president’s dinner tickets (if applicable) and delegate bag and head to your seminars. 

What other food do I get during the event?

We go to great lengths to ensure that several meals are included with the price of your full delegate purchase. Lunches, receptions and the President's Dinner are provided on various days. Breakfast is usually on your own unless you are attending those breakfasts sponsored by specific sponsors. 

When do I need to wear my badge? 

At all times! This event is closed to paying delegates only and the only way we (and security) know if you’re paid is if you have your badge with you. Please wear it at all times. No exceptions. This includes all social functions. Badges are NOT to be shared. 

What is the attire? 

Feel free to come dressed comfortably in business casual attire when attending daily seminars. Bring a sweater if you run cold as rooms can sometimes be chilly. For evening receptions, feel free to dress up if you’d like. The President’s Dinner is normally black tie, but we encourage members to come dressed business casual and ready to dance the evening away.

Are there photo opportunities? 

At the President's Dinner, members will be able to get their photos take on a green screen or backdrop and purchase photos with 50% of the purchase going to the National Museum of Roller Skating.

Is the event open or closed to the public?

The entire Roller Skating Industry Convention and Trade Show is a closed event and open to registered delegates and exhibitors only. 

What is the president’s dinner?

Every year, at the close of the event, we host a black tie dinner honoring the current RSA president, presidential award winners, staff, etc. and select the winners of the National Museum of Roller Skating Raffle prizes (tickets are available for purchase from RSA Board Members or at the National Museum of Roller Skating booth in the Trade Show). Once the three course meal is complete, members can dance the night away afterwards. 

How much does my RSA membership save me on convention registration?

Roller Skating Association members save more than 50% off the non-member convention rate of $750 by registering by the early bird deadline.

How does member pricing work? 

Delegate fees for the first through the fourth include full convention access to all seminars, trade show and the President’s Dinner. Fifth delegate or more includes full convention and trade show with a separate fee for the President’s Dinner. You may also purchase a trade show only pass for each day. 

What if I’m not an RSA member? 

The member dues fee to belong to the Roller Skating Association International is just $390 for the year. The money saved on your convention registration fees and more than 50 other discounts and perks, your dues pay for itself several times over throughout the year.
