Although everything is still uncertain, due to the current Covid status, we have proceeded with the preparations for SMC 2021.
As you can also see on the home page of this website we have a pre-liminary schedule :
* Definite Go-Ahead – 15th July (or sooner if possible)
* Registration Trade – already available (check the Trade Page)
* Registration Clubs – already available (please use the contact form for clubs)
* Opening workshops registration – August 1
* Registration Hotel Rooms at NH venue – August 1
* Online Ticket sales – August 1
* Opening Contest registration – September 1
Apart from that, we have invited all vendors that have signed up for the mailing list and we will start inviting clubs very soon too.
Clubs that are interested in a stand, please use the club contact form
And vendors that require a stand are requested to sign up for the vendor mailing list. However, if you have been trading at SMC in the past, or have booked (and paid!) for your stand at the World Model Expo, please check your email first (including the spam folder) as we have sent you a newsletter recently.
As for the contest: the classes, rules and judging criteria have been published on the contest page. We have made some changes in the contest, in line with our contest philosophy, that might well be worth looking at.
The workshops program is also under construction. And although we will offer a less elaborate program than usual, the line up is smashing and well worth the wait. Stay tuned!
A word about the room reservations:
On social media we sometimes see people stating they booked a room, which is usually cause for total panic all around, angry and sometimes even abusive reactions toward the organisers.
Please be assured that maybe these individuals have booked a room indeed, but certainly not at NH Koningshof. We’ve checked with NH and the say that all rooms for the SMC weekend are blocked until we open the reservations according to the agreed schedule and via the method that will be explained later on the Hotel Reservations page
Finally, as mentioned, we are very much aware that the odds are not in our favour, but we wish to keep the spirits high and are eager to welcome you all again in October.
Please watch this website for more information in the months to come.
Stay safe and healthy!
The SMC Team
SMC 2021 Saturday 16th, and Sunday 17th October 2021
Be there and make the difference!
