‘Pop-Up’ Motor Show launched by The British Motor Show team

By autotech-nic on October 8, 2020

The team behind The British Motor Show is launching a series of portable ‘Pop-Up’ motor shows in the run-up to the big event in August 2021.

The free-to-enter event 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 models from manufacturers and local retailers, the show will include space for a select number of other automotive retailers.

Interesting cars on display will also include EVs, classics and retro-electric cars, stunt cars and supercars.

Amongst the exhibits that will be a rare Lamborghini Aventador and an Electric 2CV. Other features will include supercar displays, driving simulators, a giant Scalextric track and surprise ‘guest’ cars during the course of the event.

The British Motor Show CEO, Andy Entwistle, who is behind the event said: “2020 has been a tough year for many people thanks to the unprecedented changes it has brought to their daily lives. For car fans, all of the major automotive events were cancelled including The British Motor Show 2020. Think of the Pop-Up Motor Show as a creche for car fans, kids & car buyers whilst out shopping!”

The exhibition will use 6,000 square feet of retail space, with expected footfall of over five million people visiting Festival Place during the run-up to Christmas.

A limited number of retail and display opportunities remain from just £250. Space is available from 1 week to 3 months and is also available fully managed. The team can be contacted on
