Continuing the good fight to bring Large Scale RC to the masses…… TGN headed to Lincoln Nebraska for the 2010 Hobby Town USA product trade show. This is a “trade” only show and you must own a HobbyTown USA in order to attend. Your company must also be on an approved list in order to have a booth at the show. TGN sells to many HobbyTowns across the US so this was not a problem for us.
This is a unique show in that there is a standard show floor in a hotel convention area but there is 4 floors of standard hotel room suites that get converted to manufactures show rooms. Its kinda strange at first but it does allow for more privacy than any other show style and I kinda liked it.
HPI had a suit with its cars covering the wall. With the baja 5t at top and the new 1/12 mini trophy truck front and center.
Traxxas used a smalle meeting room in the hotel to showcase their products. We enjoyed this space since we have been expanding our line of Short Course parts.
Lincoln was a neat town, I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected. One night with my camera and tripod in hand I headed out for a photo walk. Here are a couple shots I took.
