EXHIBITING AT THE SHOW
Year-on-year more of the UK’s best known classic car dealers, companies and traders choose the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, as their ‘showroom’ due to the shows renown reputation as the UK’s biggest & best classic motoring celebration. Last year’s show welcomed 71,000 visitors and included everyday classics to thoroughbred and prestige marques, the variety of cars was superb. All tastes and budgets were catered for, with cars typically on offer from the entry level sub-£10,000 bracket to the £100,000-plus bracket. There are several exhibiting options available designed to suit every type of company, brand or trader. Please see below for the opportunity that best suits your requirements for the 2017 Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery.
These occupy the very best locations for guaranteed constant visitor traffic. Trade stands suit core-to-the-market companies requiring a high profile presence and, equally, are proven to suit any company who may not be directly involved in the classic motoring market, but are attracted to our superb audience profile.
These come in two options:
Shell Scheme: £240 + VAT per square metre. This is a ready built stand/booth for you to simply 'move in' to and furnish with your branding, products etc.
Space Only: £216 + VAT per square metre. This is exactly as it sounds; floor space in prime areas. This often suits companies/brands that prefer to build their entire stand from the ground up.
In either case, the bare minimum stand size available is 6 sqm (e.g., 3m x 2m, 4m x 1.5m).
Should Trade Stand prices present a cost issue to some smaller traders, then we suggest looking at the market-style Classic Trader Village as an alternative for tighter budgets.
Many dealers choose to make this event their showroom every year, and with good reason. Car sales at the show are historically proven to be very strong. We invite Dealers offering quality vehicles (catering to all price ranges) to apply for space. Dealer space is limited (it has sold out for the past few years by September), so please enquire today. Dealer space includes carpet.
Classic Car Dealers: £55.00 + VAT per square metre
How much space will I need for my stock?
We work on the basis of one car, with the doors open, using about 15sqm of space (5m x 3m). Most cars (unless they're very big e.g. Rolls/Bentley etc.) tend to actually measure no more than 5m x 1.7m with the doors closed. This means that you should allow a minimum of 5m x 1.7 per car when working out how much space you need. Please do bear in mind that packing in a lot of cars very tightly may not be as ultimately rewarding as displaying fewer cars with more 'breathing space'. Serious buyers need to be able to fully access the vehicles.
The Restoration Area surrounds the ever popular Restoration Theatre and is populated by companies offering all manners of restoration products and services; from tools, to trim, from plating to painting, from a small job to a full 'ground-up' restoration. If your company either retails restoration products or offers a restoration service, then this is the area for you. Restoration product retailers are required to take a minimum of 25 sqm. Restoration service providers are required to take a minimum of just 6 sqm.
Restoration Area: £55.00 + VAT per square metre
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. The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, powered by Discovery, hosts one of the largest indoor Autojumble sections within a show in the UK. This area is always thriving, always delivers superb sales for our regular 'Jumblers' and always sells out early!
All Autojumble plots are space only and measure 4m x 2m.
Autojumble: Starting from £200.00 + VAT per plot.
Please contact Helen Morton on 07545 160 353 or email email@example.com to book your stand today.
Note: Autojumble space is limited and this area will sell out, so please be quick to avoid disappointment.
CLASSIC TRADER VILLAGE
The Classic Trader Village is designed as a budget option for smaller traders offering classic motoring based products that could not reasonably be classified as 'Autojumble'. This is a market-style area, similar to the Autojumble, but populated by new products, mainly classic motoring based, but The Classic Trader Village also presents a superb opportunity for any smaller company with products or services suitable for our audience.
All Classic Trader Village stands are space only and measure 3m x 3m.
Classic Trader Village: Starting from £350.00 + VAT per plot.
Please contact Helen on 07545 160 353 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your stand today.
