Our offer: Collectors and dealers from outside Norway get one table free of charge for the week-end. Additional tables are NOK. 100,- each. Registered collectors coming from abroad also get free access and free accreditation for the weekend for two persons including the table holder. Before our buffet dinner Saturday night we offer a free wine party for registered collectors with spouses, and we are preparing an informal early-bird party for Thursday afternoon, also free of charge.
The TELEMARKSHALLEN is situated next door to one of Scandinavia`s biggest water parks, Bø Sommarland. A perfect place to spend the day for family members less enthusiastic about our hobby!
