It’s a milestone year for The Matchbox Collectors International Gathering of Friends - the 2012 event marks the 10th anniversary! It’s all happening on July 20-22 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, organised by longtime Matchbox collector, promoter and founder of Route 66 Promotions, Jim Gallegos.

Fun, friendly and international, The Gathering isn’t just for Matchbox either, there’ll be plenty of other diecast brands there, especially at the toy show on Sunday. The event kicks off with a meet-and-greet on Friday, followed by seminars, a custom contest, dinner, auction and the traditional presentation by Mattel of what’s to come in the Matchbox range.

If you’d like to attend, you can find the sign-up form attached below along with details of how to submit it. Also, the auction includes several charity items with the proceeds going to Rachel’s Courtyard, a very deserving local children’s charity, so if you’d like to donate items but aren’t planning on attending, you can arrange to do so directly with Jim; HERE.​

An update from Jim Gallegos about next year's Gathering!

Save the date, It's official! The 11th Annual Matchbox Collectors (MC) International Gathering of Friends Convention is set. It will be 19-21 July 2013 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I am building an email list and will contact you when registration starts. Registration will begin later this year or very early 2013. This convention has sold out every year and we are expanding for 2013 to accommodate those who missed out before. Still Dinner and Dealer spaces are limited. Email me at matchb0x1[at]aol.com.
