The British Motor Show – 15 reasons why it’s THE must-attend car show of 2021
The British Motor Show is back! But it’s not just any old car show – this is the first major international British Motor Show since 2008 and it has been completely re-imagined, and a guaranteed fun day out for all the family.
myenergi, pioneer of the world’s first eco-smart EV chargingdevice, has been named as the official EV charging partner of this year’s British Motor Show. Come and say hello to the myenergi team at Farnborough International Expo centre. The show will feature over 30,000sqm of indoor exhibition space and 4 acres of outdoor display space, including a 2km test drive track. Two times a day throughout the event running from 19th – 22nd August, the amazing stunt team lead by Paul Swift will wow the crowds with some amazing car gymnastics, featuring sideways and two-wheel driving, whilst another key highlight will be the supercar parade, for which a selection of the world’s most unique cars will ‘purrr’ into the arena and make some noise!
As part of the partnership, myenergi will supply 20 zappi charging devices to keep electric test drive models fully-charged throughout the four-day event. In addition, members of the team will be located on stand P45, showcasing its first-to-market range of eco-smart EV charging devices. Don’t miss myenergi’s guest speakers in the Theatre located in Hall 5, with hot topics on the future of EV charging such as “How to choose your charger” each day at 15:10pm and “Electric Cars & The Environment” everyday at 16:30pm
Heralded as the only event in the world to combine such a diverse range of attractions, The British Motor Show is fast becoming a must-attend show for car aficionados nationwide. Alongside having the opportunity to explore an amazing collection of vehicles, visitors will be able to get behind the wheel of the latest models, attend a number of exhilarating performances and get up close and personal with some of the motoring world’s biggest celebrities.
Jordan Brompton, co-founder and CMO at myenergi, commented: “A great day out for all the family, The British Motor Show brings together everything you love about cars and puts them in one place. Combining a whole host of fun activities with an exhibition of the latest models, there’s something for everyone to enjoy!
“With this year’s event focusing heavily on alternative fuels, in particular through the Electric Motor Show, we wanted to show our support and ensure manufacturers could charge their test drive models with the market’s most in-demand EV charger – zappi.
“A smart EV charger with a difference, zappi can function as a standard EV charger, but also has optional charging modes capable of utilising 100% green energy – the most sustainable way to power your vehicle!”
