Worlds Greatest Hobby Update
World’s Greatest Hobby on Tour returns in 2023!

For 2023, we have updated and streamlined the entire show format. The show now has more exhibitor options, and these options offer the opportunity for the show to be more affordable.

The show will now look like a show within a show. The area at the very front of the hall will be designated for the traditional World’s Greatest Hobby on Tour style of show. This will have the look and feel of past World’s Greatest Hobby on Tour events with pipe and drape, skirted tables, etc. and is where the larger manufactures and those wishing to be in that section will be placed.

The remainder of the hall will have the look and feel of our traditional Greenberg and Great Train Shows. Standard tables, as well as our 3 table booths will be available for those selling, that do not need the options of the WGH portion of the show. This will allow you to choose the best option for you. Because the area will not be separated, the public will be able to flow throughout the entire show, seeing all of the manufactures, sellers, layouts and attractions, and will allow us to bundle that into a very attractive package to help drive attendance.

Making these changes allows us to keep the show affordable for all of the various types of exhibitors. Since we do not have to pipe and drape the entire hall as we did in the past, we can offer a much lower price to those exhibitors who do not need it. This will also allow us to shift that money from operations, to marketing to continue to drive large crowds.

 Do all the 2022 Great Midwest Train Shows – Get one Free!

As a reward for our most loyal customers, we are providing a special incentive. If you sign up and pay for 10 Great Midwest Train Shows you will get the 11th show free. As a reminder we have 11 shows each year as there is no show in July due to the county fair.

Normally this will be applied to the December 2022 show. For customers who were unable to attend the January 2022 show due to the snowstorm, we are making a special allowance and will upon request allow the to apply this free show benefit to the January show provided they are signed up for all the remaining 2022 shows. This will assist those customers who have a cash flow issue from not being able to sell at the January show. In the event that a customer opts to take the January show free and does not attend and pay for one of the other 2022 shows, they will be billed for the January show. If you take the January show free, you will not receive the December show for free.

 If you have any questions about these two new enhancements, please feel free to contact us at info@trainshow.email or call 224-500-4159 about the Great Midwest Train Shows or 224-240-8035 about the Greenberg or Great Train Shows.
