The British Motor Show is set to make a powerful return in 2022 following the staggering success of the 2021 event, which saw over 45,000 visitors flock to Farnborough International for the UK’s return to the global motor show stage.

In 2022, the event will take place form August 18-21 at the same venue, but will be even bigger and will feature even more interactive content, as manufacturers and exhibitors have already book stand space following the show’s triumphant return.

The British Motor Show CEO Andy Entwistle said: “We were absolutely blown away by the 2021 show’s staggering success – and it seems that our visitors and exhibitors were too. We’ve already sold hundreds of advanced tickets for the 2022 event and are pleased to report that we’ve already had a number of major exhibitors signing up for stand space, including car manufacturers.”

Run alongside a major partnership with cinch, The UK’s fastest-growing online used car marketplace, the show will continue for the next five years, returning to the same venue.

The 2021 show featured an amazing mix of new, used and classic cars, supercars, driving displays and marketplace sellers, with the halls and outdoor areas of the show packed throughout.

But unlike traditional motor shows, it was the event’s multiple interactive and live elements that really set it apart, with visitors praising its size, value, layout and content.

Celebrity guests included Fuzz Townshend and Tim Shaw form Car SOS, TV motoring pundit Mike Brewer, presenter Vikki-Butler Henderson and YouTube sensation Yianni, who mixed happily with the crowds.

Entwistle added: “It was these live elements, the really engaging parts of the show, that really set it apart from other motor shows and have given us the best feedback from showgoers, so we’re already planning lots more of that ‘wow’ factor for 2022.”

The Select Electric Motor Show packed full of the latest EVs (backed by Select Car Leasing) was another major draw, with thousands of visitors passing through the packed hals to check out the latest in EV cars and tech.

Coupled to a Live Stage and an Live Arena featuring the Paul Swift Stunt Show, the British Army Lightning Bolts parachute display team, Car Football, supercar and motorsport displays, many guests returned for a second day to make sure they got to see everything that was happening.

No other Motor Show has ever delivered such a variety of content, celebrity guests and live action, nor has it had such a focus on supporting our incredible automotive industry, which contributes £18.6 billion to the British economy at a time when it needs it most. The British Motor Show is delighted to confirm it’ll be returning to Farnborough on August 18-21, 2022.
