The HobbyTown National Convention is one of the most exciting times of the year in the hobby industry. HobbyTown franchisees travel from store locations in over 40 states to network with the biggest and brightest names in hobbies and toys. The tradeshow proudly features a wide variety of hobby products: R/C vehicles, helicopters, planes, games, tools, toys, models and railroad are just a few of the various types of products you'll find on display.

The expo is hosted annually in downtown Lincoln, Nebraska and is only open to the HobbyTown community. This allows our vendors and store owners exclusive one-on-one time. HobbyTown is one of the most well-known and trusted names in hobbies – our convention shares this valuable reputation. We are anticipating another fantastic and well attended show in August. If you are interested in attending, please visit the REGISTER page. We are always excited to welcome new vendors to our show!
