This is a ready built stand you can simply 'move in' to and furnish with your branding, products, etc. It includes the floor space, carpets, walls and name fascia.

This is exactly as it sounds, just the floor space. This type of stand suits companies/brands that prefer to build their entire stand from the ground up. Minimum stand size = 6m².
£80 + VAT per m²
£65 + VAT per m²
Many dealers choose to make this event their showroom every year, and with good reason. Car sales at the show are historically very strong. We invite dealers offering quality vehicles (catering to all price ranges) to apply. When selecting the required space we recommend allowing 15m² (5m x 3m) per car. All dealers stands include carpet.
From £135 for 4x2m stand
The autojumble is extremely important to this market. Autojumbles up and down the country keep the trade in rare old parts, books, manuals, badges (and a myriad of other items) going. This area is always thriving, always delivers superb sales for our regular 'jumblers' and sells out early!
From £205 for 3x3m stand
The Classic Trader Village/Small Business area is designed as a budget option for small traders offering new classic motoring based products. Like the autojumble this is a market-style area, but presents a superb opportunity for smaller companies.
A variety of bespoke sponosorship packages are available for your brand to maximise your presence at the show.
Branding and sponsorship opportunites provide the opportunity to have a stand-out presence in the pre-show marketing campaign as well as options for high visibility around the halls across the weekend. These provide you the chance to align your brand as a leading name and engage with our audience, build brand awareness and develop your sales, marketing and database.
