to purchase tickets or for more information.

Your event ticket gets you into the show, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of room-to-room trading, seminars, autograph sessions and more. But there are also a number of very special events that require additional specific ticket purchases in advance. (Specific details can be found in the confirmation packet you receive once you buy your tickets to the Convention.) These events include:

“Evening With Phil Riehlman” Dinner: The man who brought you some of your favorite castings -- such as the Volkswagen Drag Bus and the Blown Delivery -- celebrates 20 years with Mattel! The gourmet dinner will be held on Thursday night, September 26. Dinner guests will receive a very special souvenir dinner car (produced by Mattel, limited to no more than 2,000 pieces), t-shirt, pin, and more. Note that seats are limited.

HWC Vending Machine: Make sure you sign up early for your pulls -- there will only be five sessions. You'll get some great Hot Wheels merchandise from this goodie-filled machine. There's a reason why people line up for this -- and then come back for more!

No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em Poker Tournament (Charity event): The poker tournament begins at 10:00 AM on Thursday morning. Win great prizes, benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and have fun!

Button Bingo (Charity event): There will be two sessions during the show. The first session will be on Wednesday at 8:30 PM and the second session on Friday at 1:30 PM. Fun, and it's for a good cause.

Hot Wheels Convention Mania Game (Charity event): The latest convention craze is still going strong! Begins on Thursday afternoon at 2:00 PM.

And speaking of charity, don't forget to show up for the Charity Auction on Friday night (admission included with your ticket to the show). This also includes the silent auction. All charity benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation, so we urge you to participate.


NOTE: Tickets for the Convention are $70.00 each ($75.00 if purchased online) and good for all five days. You may purchase tickets online (see More Info link above) or by mail. (Tickets are not sold at the door.) Tickets are limited and sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Ticket sales will end September 6 or when the last ticket is sold, whichever occurs first. This event is produced by Collectors Events Unlimited, LLC under license from Mattel.
