Join us for the highly anticipated 4th Annual NE Iowa Diecast Toy Show, set to take place on April 6, 2024. After the immense success of our previous shows, drawing in dealers and attendees from multiple states, we can’t wait to share this year’s excitement with you.
Calling all die-cast toy enthusiasts and collectors! We’re on the lookout for dealers who specialize in an array of new, old, and customized die-cast toys. From farm toys of all scales to construction toys, semis, trucks, pressed steel vehicles, and even Hot Wheels and Matchbox, we welcome a wide range of offerings. Whether your passion lies in pedal tractors, Nascar, HO scale trains, airplanes, or custom-built toys, our show is the perfect platform to showcase your merchandise. We’re also thrilled to feature farm toy-related memorabilia and custom displays, adding an extra layer of diversity to our event.
To ensure a smooth and successful show, it’s essential to secure your spot early. Dealer contracts will be available in mid-January, and we encourage you to submit them promptly. Given our limited space, we prioritize returning dealers who turn in their contracts by February 16, 2024. Tables/spaces still available after that date will be assigned based on the order of contract submissions, requested table quantities, and inventory type. Remember, early submission is key, particularly for new dealers or those looking to secure more than two tables.
Interested dealers can request a contract by contacting us via phone or email. As for accommodations, Decorah offers a range of options, with Fairfield Inn & Suites and Country Inn & Suites boasting spacious parking lots, accommodating trailers with ease.
Please note that dealers are required to be present throughout the entire show. Early setup will be available on the Friday night before the event, allowing dealers to arrange their tables between 3-8pm.
To spread the word far and wide, we have planned extensive marketing efforts. From our dedicated Iowa Diecast Toy Show Facebook page and NE Iowa Diecast Toy Show event page to listings on Travel Iowa Calendar of Events and Ag Farm Toys website, we’ll leave no stone unturned. Expect flyers distributed to IDT customers, a Toy Farmer ad, local advertising placements including radio stations and event calendars, email campaigns, ads in NE Iowa newspapers, and enhanced social media promotions.
Don’t miss out on the NE Iowa Diecast Toy Show! Mark your calendars, prepare your inventory, and get ready for an unforgettable day of die-cast toy enthusiasm. We can’t wait to welcome you and showcase the best of the industry.
