British Motor Show returns in 2020

The British Motor Show is returning in 2020, with an all-new venue and organising committee. Based at Farnborough International, Hampshire, the show sees the return of a national British Motor Show that will include all the traditional elements, but also a number of new, live and interactive features.

As well as a display of all the latest and greatest new cars, with manufacturers and dealers showing their flagship models, it will also have halls dedicated to classic cars, motorsport and a huge hall dedicated to electric cars, new technology and alternatively fuelled vehicles. The organisers are expecting over 50,000 visitors through the doors between Thursday 20 August and Sunday 23 August, dates which have been chosen to coincide with school holidays and make it as accessible as possible for all visitors.

The new venue will play host to an event organised by Automotion Events – a new team with over 100-years of combined automotive experience. A team of experts and enthusiasts from within the automotive industry, led by Andy Entwistle as Chief Executive, will Include Paul Swift as the show’s Technical Director, the man behind the Top Gear Live stunt show.

Andy Entwistle said: “I’m incredibly excited to announce that we’re bringing the British Motor Show back. This will be like no motor show that has been seen before, and our focus on past, present and future means there will be something for the whole family, as well as every petrol-head. We are making the show accessible to everyone, including exhibitors. This is a new breed of motor show with an historic name, that will deliver something completely new, unique and utterly unmissable.”
