We are pleased to announce the Collecting Track for Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 in Orlando, Florida on April 13-16, 2017. Similar to past Star Wars Celebration events, the collecting program is the place where Star Wars collectors spanning all levels and interests come together to participate in talks, panels, and activities around the Star Wars collecting hobby.

The Star Wars Collecting Track is a completely fan-run event. All of the panelists and presenters for the collecting program are fans like you from the Star Wars collecting community. Panels consist of discussion topics with 1-4 presenters leading a detailed discussion about some area or aspect of Star Wars collecting. If you are interested in being a Star Wars Celebration Collecting Track presenter, please submit the following panel information to me at by January 15, 2017:
