Milton keynes car show
The Milton Keynes Car Show was born in 2008 by Jim Snook & Cliff Ball 2 AA patrols in the milton keynes area.
Event was organized because milton keynes history in such a event isn't the best and there is lots of interesting cars in the area which we wanted to show off to the local people. Plus we as always attending other shows for work, so we decided to put on our own...
the 2008 event was a steep learning curve. And lessons for the next event have been noted.. Signs, promotion etc.. But still we had the day arranged with in a month and the day was an agreed success
2009 event show saw the venue fill well, by midday the car count reached 810. altho a few show cars which we had advertised coming to the show let us down we still had a good day and the bed was now laid for future events...
2010 saw us hit a new high, more trade, more clubs, loads of new faces and even a fly pass from the red arrows. The show hit a peak with loads of talk making the show one of the best yet, we had everything, weather, people, amazing displays of cars and this made a great show..
2011 Saw weather warnings of rain a few showers we had moved the date from our normal weekend for Cliff to have his holiday, event clashed with other local events and large shows at santa pod and silverstone, Cliff announced this is his last show.. This with a couple of other issues from venue caused the show not to be as big as 2009 and 2010 but has made us have the drive to make sure 2012 event is one of the best yet..
I have teamed up with a local company Experience the country for the 2012 show, We have a whole new show, New larger venue ( without the issues of getting in via speed bumps), We are introducing a live action arena (another good point from old venue as damage to football field was always an issue).
A whole team of us working on the show, (in the past it was mainly down to me and cliff with help from our family). A completely new structure to the show which we hope will be the new seed for future events......
We are aiming the 2012 show to be the biggest and best yet and hope you will support us and make it a show to be remembered..
