Michelin Tyre stand? Nope.....

Toyo Tyre stand? Nope.....

Hoosier Tyre stand? Nope.....

Ist Tickets Stand? Nope....

Pistonheads Stand...Who? Nope....

Potential for lots more stands, Huge......

Prices charged by NEC to exhibitors Ridiculous. So no wonder the show is in decline.

I went today for the first time in 15 years(I'd had enough back then with getting ripped off). The show isn't good enough for me for the price they charge.

It was exactly the same(including the live arena) as it was when I went back in 2005. This is a show that you only really need to go once(I've been about 5 times now in total though).

Out of interest, what were you expecting?

Have to say personally, I had no idea what was going on in hall 4,

Wrapping services, Gumball cars, more wrapped Lamborghini's. Alpine car & ice stereo audio systems. And lots of empty space!

When it was the pistonheads show there seemed to be far more there on display with cars you could jump in and out of but there was none of this.

Maybe the theme of the show has changed but we were done in 90 minutes and couldn't be bothered to wait for the show which i gather wasn't great either

I would be aiming these comments via email to the organisers, that way they might actually do something about it, as it has been this way for a very long time.

Or things will never change, think about it like a crap meal at a restaurant, or clothes you buy online that don;t fit, what would you do? Do the same here, it's not fit for purpose, let them know.
