The Great Modelrailway Exhibition is organized since 2002 every two years by Meta Media Group, the publisher of Belgium's biggest model railroad magazine, Modelspoor Magazine (Dutch) / Train Miniature Magazine (French) and Belgium's most famous railroad magazine, Spoorweg journaal Dutch) / Journal de chemin de fer (French).
The edition scheduled for 2020 is cancelled due to the corona crisis.
We do not have a crystal ball, but bearing in mind the experts' expectations that the coronavirus might flare up again after the holiday months, and after long and careful deliberation, we decided together with our publisher to cancel our planned Great Model Railway Exhibition 2020 and postpone it until October 2022. It caused us a lot of headaches and it was a very difficult decision. Since the delayed Mobexpo will be held in the spring of 2021 and the traditional Euromodelbouw in Genk in the autumn of 2021, it seems reasonable to us to immediately postpone the Great Model Railway Exhibition of Modelspoor Magazine to October 2022, when our eleventh edition was actually planned, and hopefully when Corona will be history.
We wanted to make this anniversary edition a big party, for all enthusiasts of the model railway hobby and for all people who are professionally involved in it; now that this is not possible, we immediately turn our attention to the future. That big party is coming, albeit later than planned.
From next year on we will start to organize the tenth Great Model Railway Exhibition, bigger, better than ever. The model railway world deserves this. We will keep you informed.
We at Meta Media Groep hope that you understand our decision and we count on your cooperation and presence in 2022.
Keep yourself safe and respect the rules so that we can overcome this crisis as soon as possible.
The 10th edition will take place on Saturday 15 October from 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday 16 October 2022 from 10 am to 5 pm, at the Brabanthal Leuven.
