Collectors say that the Convention is filled with fun events, but it’s the warmth of the people that brings ’em back. Included with your ticket are autograph sessions with Hot Wheels designers and other guests, room-to-room trading, and more. Enjoy it all with friends old and new!
Here’s how to make your Convention memories shine: get in on these optional special events. Please note that you need to buy additional specific tickets in advance.
- “Evening with Rob Matthes” Dinner – Thursday, Oct. 1: Help Rob celebrate 15 years with the brand! The Hot Wheels designer is known for castings such as the ’64 GMC Panel and the Custom ’62 Chevy. Dinner guests will receive a souvenir dinner car (produced by Mattel, limited to no more than 1,500 pieces), t-shirt, pin, and more. Seats are limited and usually sell out quickly, so get yours early!
- HWC Vending Machine: The HWC VM is packed full of super Hot Wheels items! There will be five sessions during the show, and pulls are limited. See the Convention website for full details.
Game with an aim! Your play in these games supports a good cause. Just like the special events above, you’ll need to get your tickets for these optional events in advance. And when you do, you help benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Full details are on the Convention website.
