British International Motor Show 23/07 - 3/08/08

Postby marktime » Tue May 27, 2008 3:53 pm

Hope I have got the format right Chris, please adjust if required.


This years British International Motor Show at Excel will be incorporating the Electric Vehicle Village.

It might not be an event that the BVS would have a presence at but I will see if I can manage a visit.

They did actually contact me about exhibiting Qdos Cars there but it's £10,000 for a single car stand. Interestingly a number of big car manufacturers also think it's too expensive and they have turn overs in the millions!

Sad really but there you go that's what happens when people get too greedy

Alright for some :roll: :lol:

Why do they do that .............turn these shows into a money making venture , I ask you 10K for a single car stand :shock: what are these folk on :evil:

So if they want 10K for a stand I wonder how many vehicles they will get in their "electric vehicle village" me thinks it willbe a tadge quiet :lol:

After much haggling and twisting of arms I did manage to get the price down to £6000 but yep as far as I was concerned and one of my suppliers this was still far too expensive! It was more than was paid for a 7 car stand at the Paris Motor Show which is a far far more prestigious event attracting far higher numbers of people from all over the world.

Is it any wonder that Britain is becomming a backwater?
