  • Without admission ticket you cannot participate in the workshops program. Except if you follow a workshop on Friday of course. Obviously, you need only one admission ticket per day, regardless of the number of workshops you enter, or a multi-day ticket in case you follow workshops on more than one day.

Show admission & contest participation

Show admission & contest participation
  • Workshop participants are requested to enter the show via the fast entry lanes, thus avoiding the inevitable queue at the entrance in the morning. Therefore we recommend purchasing admission tickets online.
  • Workshop participants for morning sessions, and who enter models into the SMC contest, are invited to use the priority check-in lane in the contest registration room on Saturday, so they can be at their workshop in time.
    Therefore it is recommended that you pre-register your models for the contest. Pre-registration for the contest opens August 1,  and closes September 30.
  • SMC 2024 admission tickets can be purchased online separately and also at the ticket counters during the show.
  • Unless indicated otherwise, there will be no further communication with the students about the workshops prior to the show. All info you need is mentioned here on the website.
