The IPMS (UK) Annual Competition will run in its usual format and all entries must be pre-registered as normal

Over the next couple of months we will issue further information and update our Scale ModelWorld pages on the IPMS (UK) website (https://ipmsuk.org/ipms-scale-modelworld/) on a regular basis as soon as we are able to finalise various aspects of the event.
If you are intending to travel from outside the United Kingdom to visit or trade at Scale ModelWorld, please ensure that you have read and understood the relevant Covid travel regulations for the UK and your own country before travelling. IPMS (UK) have no control over those regulations and cannot predict how they might affect individual travellers between now and November.
We are committed to working closely with our hosts at the venue, the Southwater Event Group, to ensure that Scale ModelWorld runs as smoothly and successfully as possible. and maintaining a close working relationship that has developed over the last two decades.
The IPMS (UK) Executive Committee would also like to express their thanks for the continuing support we have received from the members of IPMS (UK) in these difficult times.
