With record crowds of 25,000 this year at the London Motor Show it was only a matter of time that the organisers realised that the space at Battersea Park was too small for the continued growth of the show. This year the show was a massive success with some of the largest manufacturers exhibiting over 130 brand new cars along side some UK debuts. Key influential faces in the automotive industry were also present. However, the show seemed very limited in terms of space compared to the likes of the Geneva Motor Show.
Thankfully the organisers of the show have decided that the shows second year at Battersea Park will also be its last. Instead the London Motor Show will be moving onwards to the ExCel London, a purpose built exhibition centre almost two and a half times bigger than Battersea Park. This would mean that the exhibitors at the show will have more space to show off a wider variety of vehicles to the public. A move that can only benefit the show positively.
Debuting at the ExCel London between the 17th to 20th of May 2018 the London Motor Show is expected to break all previous attendance records. We’re looking forward to another fantastic show.
