There are many ways you can participate in the World’s Greatest Hobby Online show. Our various options make it easy and affordable for you to reach thousands of present and future model railroaders in a single day. 

The most robust way to participate is with a Virtual Booth. A Virtual Booth is very much like a physical booth at a train show. Your customers can see you live, you can show them products, and they can communicate with you. You can even set up to sell product if you like. Virtual Booths can be appropriate for manufacturers, dealers, and nonprofit organizations. For more information on Virtual Booths please click the button below:

If your company has unique expertise you want to share, you may want to consider giving a presentation in one of our education rooms. The educational presentations are designed to be either live or prerecorded, with a question-and-answer session at the end of the presentation. We are interested in presentations for newcomers to the hobby as well as presentations for experienced model railroaders. Manufacturers, nonprofit clubs and organizations, individuals, and dealers are all appropriate presenters and there is no charge for presenters.

This can be used by dealers, manufacturers, nonprofits or individuals. The cost of being seen by thousands is as low as $5.00 if you order by March 31, 2021.  If you are interested in purchasing a Show Special banner, please click the button below:
