Last weekend the getoffroad.com show team ended up back where we started. Stoneleigh again hosted the Great British Land Rover Show, and it was another great day out on the road.
Last year we arrived at Stoneleigh not really knowing what we expect from the day. It ended up as a very good show for us. Our products proved popular and it was great to speak to real Land Rover enthusiasts about what they wanted from us.
This year we actually knew what we were doing - to some degree anyway(!), and had a much larger stand. Despite a few queues, we managed to serve more people quickly this time and hopefully all our customers left happy with their show special offers
On to 2018
So that;s it for 2017 from the events team. We'll be back in 2018 with a few schedule changes. We've not got a final calendar yet - and a number of existing shows are moving around the calendar, re-inventing themselves, and even moving locations.
At the moment its looking like we'll start in January, for the Malvern 4x4 Spares Day. We'll then be in Peterborough for the 4x4 and Vintage Spares Day, and in Stafford for the Indoor 4x4 Show.
Throughout the year we'll be back at the biggest shows - Edinburgh for the Scottish Land Rover Show, Kelmarsh and the big one - Peterborough for the LRO Show.
Thanks to all our customers from Andy, Andy, Dan, Mark, Rhys and Joner. See you in 2018, and remember our deals will continue online throughout the winter period!
Just a quick update on our preparations for The Great British Land Rover Show at Stoneleigh. We're all booked in both at our hotel, and more importantly our usual "pitch" in Hall 2!
Keep Sunday 26th November clear for a great day out and a real chance of grabbing a bargain from our stand.
At the Great British Land Rover Show you'll enjoy:
- Lancaster Insurance Land Rover Walkway
- 2.4m off-road course to check out with your own vehicle in association with the AWDC
- See the actual original Landy from the much-loved Land Rover children's author Veronica Lamond
- Live Land Rover Workshop in association with NWS Motor Services
- Land Rover only parking areas
- + further features to be announced
See you there!
After a busy three weeks for the get off road team, we've got a bit of time off! Our show specials went down well on our mini-tour - Peterborough, Stratford, Newbury. Our Defender Halo Headlights and LED upgrade kits flew off the shelves (tables!) as usual, with our biggest show yet coming at Peterborough. Might be down to our special show pricing! You'll find a selection of our most popular products from the shows here.
We're rapidly approaching the end of our first full show season, with just one event left. We'll be back where it all started last year - Stoneleigh. 12 months ago we rocked up without much of a clue what we were doing, what we might sell or what reaction we'd get from visitors.
It turned out to be a fantastic way to get the getoffroad.com name out there and source useful feedback on what Land Rover products we needed to stock. We had a full stand for much of the day, and returned to Stoneleigh earlier this year too.
So we'll be back - 26th November 2017, 10am 'til 4pm at the NAEC Stoneleigh, Warwickshire. At the moment we expect to be in our usual position in Hall 2, but we'll update nearer the time.
