Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some common questions about SMC
Can I book tickets online?
Yes you can. Please go to this page
Will SMC continue after the World Model Expo in 2020
We get this question a lot actually and the answer is simple: Yes, SMC will continue after 2020.
For obvious reasons we will skip one year, in 2020 as there is no point in having two large events in the same location less than three months apart.
The dates for future SMC’s are already set: 2021 – October 16-17
2022 – October 15-16
Meaning that the dates also after 2022 will always be the third weekend of October.
Can I enter my contest models for SMC 2019 also in the WME 2020 contest?
Yes, you can.
SMC and WME are two totally different events, so you can enter your newest stuff at SMC this year and you can enter the same models in the World Expo comp.
Can I book a hotel room already?
Yes you can . Check this page please.
Can you book me a room?
No, please got to this page to book your room.
Can I book a vendor stand?
Not anymore. We’re fully booked. We always send invitations to our loyal vendors late December when we open registrations.
“New” vendors, a.k.a. those interested and haven’t been trading at SMC during the recent edition or haven’t been trading at SMC before at all, please go to the landing page of our website and scroll down to the bottom of the page. There you’ll find a link to sign up to the “new vendors” list. You can still sign up for the waiting list. More info can be found there.
Is there a hotel near the show?
Yes, check this page please.
Are there more hotels in the area?
Of course, check this page please.
Can I book our club stand?
No, club stands are available by invititation only. Not because we are playing hard to get, but due to limited available space we have to make choices. You can alwaysdrop us a line if you want a club stand and if you think that your club stand has something extra to offer to our visitors: firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I get cash from an ATM at the show, venue or hotel?
No. NH Eindhoven does not have a ATM. There is one at 15 minutes walking distance.
Why don’t you arrange for an ATM machine at the show?
Trust us, we’ve tried every option and for the duration of our event we haven’t found possibilities. It’s 100% up to NH to decide whether they place an ATM. We keep pushing them, but we don’t own the venue.
For 2019 we will ask all SMC vendors whether they also accept e-payments of any kind and will indicate those who do on the floor plan in due time.
Can I pay by card at the show?
Yes, although limited to debit cards only.
The entrance fee can be paid with debit cards at two of the three ticket counters at the main entrance and also at the entrance through the hotel. We also take card payments at the tombola stand. We are not allowed to handle credit card payments or providing you with cash. It’s the law, not ill will.
Why can't you make everybody happy?
Because we cannot do magic, but we’re stupid enough to give it a try anyway.
