WHY TRADE WITH CLASSIC SHOWS?

Classic Shows events offer an ideal opportunity to sell, or promote to, a large number of classic car and motorcycle enthusiasts including vehicle owners (exhibitors) and members of the general public (visitors). Common items for sale include hard-to-find parts, merchandise, memorabilia, manuals / books, signs, number plates, polishes and detailing items, vintage items and Americana.

In addition, the events also attract considerable family and day visitors providing further opportunities including craft items, gifts, photographs and posters, clothing and confectionery (fudge, cakes etc).

As Classic Shows events are located at some of the UK’s most prestigious country homes and venues, the events attract a strong ABC1 / professional / high disposable income demographic which in turn presents the perfect opportunity to achieve event profile or sales from a qualified audience.

PITCHES

Indoor Pitches: We have 80+ indoor pitches available measuring 4m X 3m. These are located in the Severn Hall. Traders and autojumblers can drive into the hall to unload their stock as long as their vehicles are removed from the building before the event commences. Please note the premium pitch locations for this event are highlighted on the Severn Hall floor plan in blue. Higher pricing applies to these trading locations in consideration for their improved profile / footfall status. Call the office for a quote.

If you wish to book a specific space it is strongly recommended that you contact us as early as possible as the better located trading spaces will generally be booked some time before the event takes place. Any indoor spaces which remain unsold by the day of the event will be made available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Please note that to reserve an indoor pitch, payment is required to be made at the point of booking.

Outdoor pitches: Outdoor pitches are available at 6m X 6m and are available first come, first served.

We have plenty of outdoor pitches, so don’t expect to run out, but if you would like a particular pitch it’s best to arrive early as we do not reserve pitches.

PREMIUM TRADE

Want to stand out from the crowd? Want to really push your sales? Then why not speak to the office about the exclusive premium trading opportunities offered at Classic Shows events?

At all events we have identified those trading locations which offer the highest footfall and / or greatest trading profile, for example those locations adjacent to the judging arena, catering village or on the end of a trade row. These locations are ideal for traders wishing to maximise the trading opportunity by promoting a new product launch, product placements or special offers.

Premium trade pitches start from 6m X 6m and multiple spaces are also available. Spaces are allocated and reserved in advance. A site map is available for each event identifying the premium trading locations – see the Booking Form section of the website for further details.
