Green light for NEC Classic
Plans forge forward for the November show
With coronavirus ravaging the classic motoring calendar, the organisers of the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, are pulling out all the stops to do everything possible to increase the chances of the November event happening in 2020 once government gives its approval. The organisers are looking at extending the show opening times but allocating a dedicated time for entrance along with a specific hall from which to enter the show. This will reduce the amount of people arriving at the venue at the same time, with shuttle buses running with managed capacities and controlled volumes in the communal areas. Upon arrival, all visitors and exhibitors will undergo mandatory temperature checks, and there will be isolation rooms available for anyone showing cause for concern. There will be a queuing system to enter the halls, which will each operate in a oneway direction similar to that of a supermarket to avoid packed aisles. The floorplan has been reviewed to introduce widened aisles to ensure visitors can view the displays while maintaining physical distancing guidelines. Hand sanitiser stations will be at all entrance points, with exhibitors and clubs also offering sanitiser on their stands. The show’s motto has become ‘Wheel Meet Again!’ Use the hashtag #wheelmeetagain to share your previous memories of the NEC Show from previous years over social media. The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, is scheduled to be held at Birmingham’s NEC from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 November 2020. Tickets are now on sale with limited availability.
