September 1st 2016 to September 5th 2016 - Egypt Show EGYHOBBY2016
Venue: El Kalema Hall , El Sawy Culture Wheel , Zamalek, Egypt
We have been quite busy lately preparing the first scale modeling exhibition to take place in Egypt. EGYHOBBY2016 will be a big step in promoting the hobby in Egypt which is our main goal. We will show the work of nearly 15 Egyptian modelers. We will hold workshops to help new people who are interested to start the hobby with step by step advice. It’s a very humble effort but we hope it will be the start of something good. Depending on the feedback this year, we would like to hold the exhibition on yearly bases and the grow and develop it with ideas such as a competition and prizes, an exchange table and hopefully we might be able to attract some sponsors from the modeling world companies who can support us.
