    How will this event work? I'm pretty new to trading. Can I buy some of the LE 200 traders at the event, or do I need to bring comparable LE size traders to trade for them?

    The only pins you can trade are ones purchased at the event. Plan on buying traders when you come. :)

    Okay, I'm back with another opinion/critique.

    Here (I've also screenshot it):
    Pinopolis

    It says "Come and experience the world debut of the new HotArt trading program! Meet up with our Pinmasters and swap for our dazzling, exclusive HotArt LE 200 Lanyard pins."

    The bold, italics, and underline are by me, for emphasis.

    What does exclusive mean?

    According to my copy of the Merriam-Webster New Collegiate Dictionary (c. 1977 so maybe the definition has changed in the last 40 years), it has multiple meanings as follows: (1) excluding or having power to exclude; (2) limiting or limited to possession, control, or use by a single individual or group; (3) excluding others from participation; (4) snobbishly aloof; (5) accepting or soliciting only a socially restricted patronage (as of the upper class); (6) stylish, fashionable; (7) restricted in distribution, use, or appeal because of expense; (8) single, sole (as in jurisdiction), (9) whole, undivided (as in "his attention")

    *note: I didn't think dictionaries used a variation of the term to define the term, but ok*

    To me, exclusive means that the pins would only be seen and traded in Las Vegas.

    But, apparently, that is not the case. The "leftovers" were distributed to the Southern California Pin Master (for two events they have had since PinCon). Others may have been distributed overseas and to other North American Pin Masters.

    So, you may want to re-word this for future events if it is only the inaugural appearance of the pins and the pins will be made available elsewhere.

    Just my two cents, but I think you’re super over analyzing this. I re-read the page, and nothing makes it sound like these were exclusive to the specific Las Vegas event only? It reads as they are exclusive to Hot Art for lanyard trading (which they are). Also given the info prior to the event on multiple posts on the forum, the representative answered questions that the pins would be available at future events like their upcoming presence in Florida.
