N.A.M.E.S. 2011 Exposition April 30th-May 1st
« on: April 22, 2010, 09:42:33 PM »
N.A.M.E.S.EXPO in 2011
The dates are April 30th to May 1st.
It will be at the Southgate Civic Center arena.



As to what happened to the move to the Novi Center, a new management company took over and all verbal agreements were off. Plus they wanted $9.00 per day parking, due to the lower numbers of attendees compared to say a gun show.

Well it's time to start thinking of coming to the show this April, With everything going on in the world. Might be a good idea to put some extra away with gas and all.

Will be posting the fuel rules etc. shortly, along with any new info.  :D  :)

There has been a slight change for vendors please note the info below:
If you would like to learn how to become a vendor at the 22nd Annual North American Model Engineering Exposition, please contact Jim Snider, at (419) 350-6223 or by e-mail: pjsnider@embarqmail.com for a vendor package. If you are dealing heavy weight items please let him know so you can be placed in the main area, easier to get in and out

We will be only in the one side as last year, due to the economy etc. as the cost of prepping the other rink would have been prohibitive.

About the only difference is the ones in charge of the vendors sales, are trying to have all the people with the heavy iron in the main arena area, and not in the small rooms!

Remember ALL EXHIBITORS are not allowed to sell at  their display whether it is the items on display or by displaying a sign with items on it! There are NO SALES by EXHIBITORS! And parties that break the rule will be escorted from the show.
Hope this will answer the email questions.

Saturday as there generally are more people there till mid afternoon. As some of the older people head out home if they come from a long distance. Come early, as that is when the best stuff is still available for sale!  :lol: :lol:
They still has been a fair amount of people on Sunday, but it is just one of those things that you can't really do anything about.

For those that are going to come south on I-75 to the Show beware  that the exit to Northline rd. is closed You have to go one south to the next exit at Eureka road. The North bound entrance to I-75 at Northline road is closed you have to use the one at Eureka rd.

Also for any that would be using Eastbound to go home Saturday or Sunday I-94 Eastbound will be closed from 10pm Friday till 5am Monday starting at I-696
