Good News: London Motor Show Axed for 2010


Enough of this car supremascist stuff.

According to MSN today:

“It’s hardly the most shocking news ever announced but the SMMT has formally acknowledged there’ll be no London Motor Show next year.

After only two events, the British International Motor Show at ExCel in London’s docklands simply couldn’t find enough exhibitors.

Vauxhall Insignia made debut at British Motor Show ’08Credit to the organisers is due for trying to liven up the standard motor show format with rock concerts, outdoor events and hands-on activities. But without the necessary visitor numbers and a lack of manufacturer support from key brands like BMW and the Volkswagen group, the show was on shaky ground anyway.

And then the recession came knocking at the door. With marketing budgets slashed even the manufacturers who did want a stand were unable to commit to the 2010 show. “
