The EXPOZONE is the central area of the show where we offer you lots of cool stuff and eye candy.
On the various vendor stands in the EXPOZONE you can attend demonstrations by renowned modellers. There will also be demos by various guests and other exhibitors in this area.
In the EXPOZONE you will also find the displays of the work of our judges and other painters and modellers.
We invite modelers & painters clubs to take part in SMC 2017 with a club stand. Scale Model Challenge is a show for all categories of “plastic” scale modelling, figure painting and more, and we welcome you all to join us for a great weekend.
Registration will open early 2017.
At SMC 2017 you will be able to learn from the best in our interactive workshop program. Interactive means hands-on, so you will work on your model or figure together with the some of the best artists in the hobby.
We offer a substantial workshops program for painters and modellers and the program will be announced in Spring 2017.
The Vintage Market is the new name for the former bargain corner. In this area you can find the tables from private sellers who are selling their surplus stock and where you might find that, perhaps, long forgotten kit that “you have always wanted to build but never could afford back in the day”.
One of SMC’s key features is its contest which is divided in a scale modelling competition and a figure painting competition, both with their own Best of Show Awards.
The SMC contest is open to all modellers and painters and you can enter into different experience levels.
This year we will introduce a Best of Standard (previously Advanced or Advanced/Beginners combined) award as well, in both the scale modelling and the figure painting contest.
Registration for the contest will open in September 2017, but you can find all information about the contest on the dedicated page on this website.
THE SMC VENUE & EINDHOVEN
Click on the icons below to read more information about the place where it all happens and if you wish to spend more time in and around Eindhoven, we have gathered some interesting information for you:
- An overview of things to do in Eindhoven
- If you are interested in contemporary design we recommend that you visit the Dutch Design Week when you come to SMC. Eindhoven is renowned for its Design Academy and this annual event draws many (inter-)national visitors. Highly recommended. the SMC dates coincide with the dates of this event (21-29th October), so it is an ideal reason to lengthen your stay.
- And because the SMC venue, the NH Eindhoven Conference Centre Koningshof is actually located in the suburb Veldhoven, we have a link to the Veldhoven tourist information for you as well.
