Filled with fun events and friendship, it’s the best place of all to meet other collectors, and to buy, sell, and swap Hot Wheels both rare and common from all eras. Included with your ticket are autograph sessions with Hot Wheels designers and other guests, room-to-room trading, and more. For HW fans, it must be experienced. You can’t enjoy it if you don’t show up!


Here’s a preview of the fun to be had. More details will be announced later this year:

  • “Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary” Dinner – Thursday, Oct. 4 (sold out!): Celebrate the big 50th of the brand that brought you “speed, power, performance, and attitude.” 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.


You’ll already be having a blast, but these additional events add even more fun, plus they support a great cause: Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles. Tickets for these optional events are already sold out. Full details are on the Convention website:

  • Charity Button Bingo
  • Charity Poker
  • Charity Mania

And you can help Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles even more while helping your collection: pick up special Hot Wheels items at the auctions during the show (no advance tickets required):

  • Charity Auction
  • Silent Auction


Tickets are $70 each ($75 if purchased online) and good for all five days. Ticket sales will end September 7 (and September 14 for special events) or when the last ticket is sold, whichever occurs first. Get your tickets by mail or online – click here for all the details.
