Meet the Shapeways Community at Taupo Hobby Expo 2013, New Zealand

Do you live on the North Island of New Zealand? Then you can meet the Shapeways Community in Taupo this weekend, July 20th and 21st!

Community member Peter Bryant (of Kiwi Trains fame) and his friend Daniela Schlecht are representing Shapeways at the Taupo Hobby Expo 2013. The event is huge – they had over 4,000 visitors last year! (check out these pictures). Come over and say hi to them!

Here’s what Andrew Taylor of the Waikato Scale Model Club says about the event:
“We would like to invite you and anyone else kids, mother in law, uncle etc to come and pay us a visit at the Taupo Hobby Expo 2013 which is being hosted by the Taupo Model Railway Club. This is a two day event and there will be lots to see. Everything from working railways, trucks, cars and planes will be there and we will be displaying our own collection of built models from aircraft, Sci-Fi, cars and ships. Throughout the two days we will also be displaying live model building so you can see how we create that professional look to our models and you can ask us as many questions as you like.
The Show is being held at the Taupo Events Centre which also forms part of the AC Baths on the corner of Centennial Drive and AC Baths Avenue not far from the Lake Taupo Top 10 Holiday Resort one the edge of Taupo township: Link to Map.
The event is on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st July 2013 and the public times are 10am-5pm Sat and 9am-3pm Sun.
We hope you will come and pay us and the Taupo Hobby Expo 2013 a visit and please come back and keep a look out for details of our next events happening later this year. Bye for now!!!!”
