The Chiltern Model Railway Association is holding a Model Railway Exhibition Conference on the 21st April 2018.


The idea behind the conference is to gain the views and experience of those who organise or help at exhibitions, exhibit with a layout or stand, attend model railway exhibitions as a trader or as a member of the paying public. This with the view to improve the experience of all involved in promoting the hobby through model railway exhibitions both small and large.


Areas we are looking to cover include:

  • Show Planning - Venue, Finding layouts, Admission charges, Budgeting costs, overseas exhibitors

  • Venue Planning - Floorplan, Security, Car parking, Disabled and emergency access, evacuation procedures

  • Show Publicity - Advertising, traditional such as handbills & posters, magazines, internet and social media

  • Insurance - When and what to insure. Impact of too little insurance. What may not be covered. Liabilities

  • Electrical Safety - Cabling, trip hazards. Layout, trade and demonstrator's Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

  • Health & Safety - Risk assessments, Safeguarding of children & vunerable adults. First Aid provision

  • Participant's Perspective - Stand Presentation. Exhibitors and visitors experience. Social meetings. Best in show awards.




The conference poster can be downloaded by clicking here.


The Conference is free for members of CMRA Associate Organisations.
However we ask for a donation of £6.00 for any non-members wishing to attend to cover the cost of their buffet lunch.


So that we can put in place the necessary catering for the event please can all those thinking of attending please email our Secretary, Stuart Marshall, using the address secretary@cmra.org.uk.

Modellers Day
2018


 
Saturday 21st July

 
at
The Parmiters School
High Elms Lane, Watford
WD25 0UU


 
Open from 10.00 till 17.00

 


The Chiltern Model Railway Association will once again be holding its Modellers' Day in 2018. The day, in previous years promoted as TIME the Totally Interactive Modelling Event, involves modellers who belong to member organisations of the CMRA, presenting and demonstrating items of modelling interest to colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere, away from exhibition constraints.


The event will also incorporate films, talks, discussions and practical demonstrations, some by leading figures in the railway modelling hobby.


The event is open to all members of our Associate organisations, and to non-members. It is one of those pleasant opportunities to talk, listen, learn and pass on your ideas to like minded modellers, indeed all participants are encouraged to reserve table space so as to bring along their models and share their experiences.


Admission includes tea, coffee and an excellent buffet lunch - what more could you ask for?
