Flagship show sponsor reassures attendees of a memorable event

Classic car users might wish to keep November 11th to 14th clear in their diaries for the annual Footman James Classic Motor Show, the industry's flagship event.

With this being its second year at the helm as the show's lead sponsor, Footman James is reassuring ticket holders that there will be no let-up from the standard displayed at 2010's fair, with 45,000 visitors expected to attend for this year's theme 'Keeping Classics Alive'.

Held at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre, the exhibition should also attract vintage motorcycle enthusiasts, with Footman James holding both a feature stand in the motor show as well as a classic motorcycle exhibit in the bike hall.

Garry Carlin, sales director at Footman James, declared: "We have sponsored the Classic Motor Show for 17 years now […] and from day one, we have been immensely proud to support the flagship event of the classic vehicle movement."

Visitors can also expect to benefit from the range of exhibitors on display showcasing 'all and any' kind of motoring based product, including smaller cheaper classic car insurance providers as well as auction houses and restoration services.
