British Motor Show rescheduled to 2021 due to Covid 19
It is with great regret that the returning British Motor Show 2020 is to be rescheduled to 2021. It will now take place from Thursday August 19 – Sunday August 22, 2021.
It was widely expected that the show would be one of the few motoring events to take place in 2020. However having monitored the situation closely, it is expected that large scale events will not be permitted to take place until much later in the year
Given the show‘s unique combination of indoor / outdoor displays, we felt there was no choice but to reorganise to the summer of 2021.
We must support our NHS in these challenging times and ensure the safety and health of exhibitors and visitors. As a result, and working very closely with our sponsors and partners at Farnborough, plus other authorities, we have decided to delay the main British Motor Show event until August, 2021.
It is with great disappointment that we have decided to reschedule the show, however we have some exciting news to ensure that car fans and exhibitors are not left without plenty to look forward to.
“The show will go on, And we will be there to help put the wheels back on our amazing industry as we emerge from the most challenging year we have ever faced. However we have 3 fantastic announcements”
Tickets that have already been purchased for The British Motor Show will be valid for the rescheduled event in August 2021, and those with tickets will also be offered complimentary tickets to Cars & Christmas.
Cars & Christmas
“We recognise that car fans and families alike will be desperate to make up for the cancelled events throughout 2020 and therefore – working with our key partners, including Imperial Cars, Select Car Leasing and AFC Energy – providing that social distancing guidelines allow, we are bringing forward the launch of our winter spin off event Cars and Christmas from 2021 to the weekend of the November 28 – 29, 2020.”
The event will be a more compact version of the motor show, with owners clubs and suppliers exhibiting in a huge auto–related indoor marketplace, alongside a live arena where Paul Swift will be joined by celebrity friends to put on a great two days of automotive fun.
The British Motor Show Cars & Christmas will be a chance for car enthusiasts from all over the country to unite and enjoy an automotive based event
However, with even more time to plan The British Motor Show 2021 will be even bigger and more exciting than the original 2020 event was shaping up to be.
Retro Electric Live
The team have been working hard to add more content and we are pleased to confirm that Retro-Electric Live, a show dedicated to older, cherished and classic cars retro fitted with E power, will be joining The British motor Show at Farnborough.
Visitors to the British Motor Show will get free access to Retro Electric Live where converters, suppliers and owners of retro-EVs will be on show. The conversion of older cars to E–power is a growing industry and we are pleased to host the very first global show dedicated to the art of retro fitting E-power. More details can be found at the newly–launched website www.retro-electric.uk
The Virtual Motor Show
The organisers of the show are also pleased to confirm the launch of a new website, the Virtual Motor show. The website will feature virtual car releases, model reviews, product releases and supplier reviews and most importantly offer help and advice to consumers. the website will be launched in two phases, phase 1 is a relatively standard set up, with phase 2 delivering a more interactive format, where customers can work around a virtual floorplan, visiting exhibitor stands.
Customers with tickets to the 2020 event will be contacted by our ticketing partners Ticketmaster shortly with details about the rescheduled event and the Cars and Christmas offer.
