Here is some more info from the Promoter him self.
My name is Andy as it says above I am working with my event partners to create a fun automotive hobby event in central PA. I am part of the team that hosts Motorama every February at the Farm Show Complex, so we decided to host the show at the same venue. With easy access off of route 81 (Cameron Street exit) it is a great location for this type of event. We will be dedicating a large section of the floor to Diecast collectors like you. We are offering 10*20 spaces for as little as $100.00 and 20*20 spaces for $175.00
As a member of Diecastsplus forum if you enter the code DIECASTSPLUS in the coupon box it will save you an additional $25.00 now on top of that we will be having special event exclusive vehicles from both Greenlight and Castleline/M2 which will also be used as a thank you to all vendors who make the show possible. You could sell your piece for a premium to a collector or just hold onto the limited edition piece as its value is sure to increase significantly to offset the costs of your table.

amazing diecast content HOBBYRAMA will also includes, Rock Crawling and
