The British Motor Show 2020

The British Motor Show 2020
Posted 25th November 2019

After a 12-year absence, the British Motor Show will return in 2020. The event is due to take place 20th-23rd August, at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre in Hampshire.

It’s not going to be quite the same as it was, though. The last British Motor Show took place at London’s Excel in 2008 and was organised by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

Taking the reins for 2020 is Andy Entwistle: 

“This is going to be something unlike any other motor show you’ve seen,” Entwistle said.

“We’ll be celebrating motoring past, present and future with halls dedicated to all the best that the manufacturers currently have to offer, a peek into the future and, of course, at some amazing classics. 

“We have had such fantastic support from everyone we’ve spoken to and I have a panel of key people from within the industry to help ensure that we shape a show that not only delivers an amazing experience for visitors, but also helps support the automotive industry in the UK.”

The Farnborough exhibition space offers 40,000 square feet, across five halls. Outside, there will be a live area with a two-mile track for test-drivers. Even children under 17 will be able to take supervised driving lessons. Exhibitors and more event features will be announced soon.
