The inaugural London Classic Car Show was such a success that organizers already have announced an expanded footprint for 2016 with 50 percent more floor space in the ExCel convention facility. Dates for 2016 are February 18-21.
“The feedback from the very first London Classic Car Show was incredibly positive,” event director Bas Bungish said in a news release. “So positive, in fact, that 98 per cent of our exhibitors have already ensured they have space at the 2016 show.”
Many additional exhibitors are expected, organizers said, including more classic car dealers lured by the fact that sales at the show included a Ferrari that sold for $2.28 million and an Aston Martin and E-type Jaguar that each brought more than $750,000.
With more space available, one of the show’s top features — The Grand Avenue — will be extended. In addition to static displays, the avenue, which ran through the center of the facility, served as a runway on which cars could be showcased while being driven.
“Our aim with the London Classic Car Show was to create a show that really raises the bar,” Bungish added. “We did that…. motor shows will never be the same again.”
