Cork Model Fair 2017 ?

Postby jaydee » Sat Feb 04, 2017 1:34 am

Are there any opinions on running another one this year ? It is an excellent event and I would fear that if it doesn't happen it may be very difficult to resurrect in the future. :?:

Thanks Ricardo. :o)b

There must be some opinions on the subject. It would be a pity if the show didn't go ahead after all the effort and hard work that Wayne and George put into the last few.

I will raise the question at the next Mark's meeting and hopefully go forward with it from there.

On the ball Liam. It's a lot of work and it will take a team to organise it. So we'll see how it goes. [smilie=thumb.gif]

My self and leo were Talking about this the other day, As far as im aware Wayne is not doing it this year, there is a massive amount of work involved in getting it up So i can understand it from that point but im also disappointed from a modelers point of view because we have none down this end of the country.

I would like to have it and if we can get it up and running that would be awesome.

The shows were originally set up to provide funds for the forum and to shine a light on all aspects of mode lling, you might remember it was under the guise of presented buy ism.

I won't be doing it definitely, too much on my plate these days,

One potential problem is that there a 3 New shows in cork. There is the Camden show, the clonaakilty show, the airport die cast show are also on in cork they are hoovering up potential exhibitors as there is only so much these people can can attend each year.

The cost alone will surprise you and don't expect to make anything from it. The two I did have paid for running of this forum since it started, last year's model fair unfortunately had a deficit, not much but there was no contribution to the forum. There is no other income stream to keep this running.

It would be nice to go again maybe something a bit smaller a less overheads.

Any one throwing there name in the ring?

Cheers

When you put it like that it does sound daunting, but still, and that's why I posed the question. Also,as I said, if it doesn't go ahead this year it's probably gone for good.

It's totally too much for one person to organise so it would require a group build sort of approach. We'll hold fire for a while and see what the response is like.
