March 2024: Model Show Update

March already, and time is certainly marching on too, as are preparations for the model show on Saturday 1 June. Since my web update last month, I have booked in and confirmed more traders, and these include – The Dorset Print Man with their range of 3D printed items, and Sargents Mess with their small scale ranges of accessories and figures.
The IPMS have also confirmed their attendance, whether he will be wearing a yellow shirt we will have to wait and see, but there will be an IPMS recruitment and merchandise stand, for anyone wishing to join up or renew their membership, or buy something from their range of goodies. So if there is a particular item from their range, you know you are keen to obtain, if you can let me know well in advance, (ideally before 11 May) I will do my best to move the request in the right direction.
Renewing your IPMS membership is an action that can be done well in advance of your membership expiring, your renewal date doesn’t change and you don’t lose any unexpired months by doing it early, but it does ensure, especially if your renewal is close to November, and you are needing the card for “Telford”, that you avoid the panic of whether the new card will arrive in time!
A full list of traders booked in to attend our show on Saturday 1 June, can be found on here too Traders Attending
In order to offer as wide a range of different and diverse traders, to tempt my audience with, I am still very much in negotiations with traders, and will be pleased to hear from anyone keen to have a presence at the show.
With regards to Clubs and SIGS with model displays we are nearing capacity now, but I might well be able to squeeze just a few more in, and the caveat that applied last year will apply from now: as space becomes more limited the nearer we are to show day, space for additional club displays will largely be dependent on what, if any constraints the venue impose once we have our site visit at end-April. That said, last year everyone who applied, did by being patient with me, get offered 2 tables., and I am aiming on that being the case again this year. So if you have not yet replied or would like to attend, don’t hesitate – get in touch please – sooner than later please, if you wish to guarantee your space.
As I mentioned on here last month, I will be writing to you ALL in May, once I have had a meeting at the venue, and will impart any information I have on pending road works and travel issues, along with news about our event at that time.

Many thanks
