The Pop-Up Motor Show launched by The British Motor Show team
An entirely new concept in automotive exhibitions has been launched by The British Motor Show, which is launching a series of portable ‘Pop-Up’ motor shows in the run-up to the big event in 2021.
The first Pop-Up show, designed with social distancing and current healthcare guidance front-of-mind, will take place at the Festival Place shopping centre in Basingstoke, Hants, RG21 7BA, from October 16 until December 24, 2020.
As well as featuring a selection of the latest new models from local retailers, the free-to-enter exhibition will include a number of other interesting cars including EVs, classics and retro-electric cars, which have been converted to use modern drivetrains.
Amongst the exhibits that will be on show during the event will be a rare Lamborghini Aventador, an Electric 2CV and a unique “Push me pull you” mini that will be used in the British Motor Show Live Arena in August 2021
Other features will include, driving simulators, a giant Scalextric track and surprise ‘guest’ cars during the course of the event, making it ideal for a return visit.
Other features will include ‘Ask the Experts’, with consumer specialists on hand to answer car buying and maintenance queries, an online search engine to help you find your perfect automotive match and car-themed retailers offering great gifts and ideas for Christmas. There’ll also be a competition to win a share in a Ferrari courtesy of TheCarCrowd, a new crowdfunding venture that allows normal people on normal incomes to take part-ownership of their dream car.
The exhibition isn’t just for adults though. Throughout the event we will be running a colouring and a design a car competition for children of all ages, with a selection of the designs displayed on the British Motor Show website. Our team will then choose a winner and 4 runners up for each competition, all of who will be offered a free VIP upgrade at the show.
Think of the Pop-Up Motor Show as a creche for car fans, kids & car buyers whilst out shopping. We’ve developed a way in which people can still go to a car show, experience a selection of cars both new and old and buy essential Christmas gifts for the car fan in their life.
Although it’s nowhere near on the scale of the main show in August 2021, the Pop Up Show will give visitors to Festival Place a taste of what to expect at The British Motor Show next year, while also offering a break from shopping and a chance to get help and advice and check out some interesting cars.
Visitors will also be able to pick up discounted tickets and special Christmas gift sets at the event, along with branded British Motor Show merchandise
The exhibition will be open from 10am daily at Festival place from the 16th October through to Christmas eve, admission is free but numbers may be limited to ensure that the event complies with Covid 19 guidelines.
