London Motor Show
returns for 2017
THE resurrected London Motor Show has been hailed a great success and is now set to return to Battersea Park in 2017
Next year's event, from May 4 to 7, is set to be even bigger and better with more cars, more celebrities and more fun family entertainment.
At the 2017 show, there will be over 150 brand new cars from major manufacturers and dealerships, including Tesla, Aston Martin, Fiat, Hyundai, Nissan and Zenos.
Visitors will have the chance to get up close and personal with these recently launched cars. In addition, a selection of iconic historic vehicles will also be on display, showcasing the heritage of some of the world's best-loved marques.
Showgoers will also get the chance to learn about the latest technology through exhibits from companies showcasing developments related to safety, electric vehicles, fuel alternatives and even driverless cars.
The London Motor Show has a range of exciting features and activities suitable for all ages. From virtual reality racing and the chance to meet motoring legends, to immersive simulator driving experiences, there is something for everyone.
And it doesn't end when the show closes. The evenings will see private previews and dinners taking place, supporting motoring charities including the Sean Edwards Foundation, which promotes motorsports safety, and RoadSafe.
Alec Mumford, chairman of The London Motor Show, said: "The inaugural show exceeded our expectations. With sell-out crowds over the weekend, close to 100 test drives arranged and numerous key models sold, it was a success for both ourselves as organisers and our exhibitors."
The show held in May 2016 attracted more than 25,000 visitors, with tickets sold out on Saturday and Sunday and information from the show reached a national and international audience.
