XJ40.com at the NEC Classic Car Show

Postby Dazstap » Tue Oct 01, 2019 9:41 am

Hello all,

So, who is going to, or considering visiting the Classic Car show at the NEC next month?

We are planning a couple of ideas for the stand to make it stand out a little. This is the first time that XJ40.com has appeared at what is the biggest car club gathering in the world.

We have a code that gives a discount on the ticket price, it is CC9928

Your support would be so appreciated.

Hi Darren,

I was chatting to Henry about this today and I’m going to see if I can make it down for a day, leave early and drive down from Edinburgh and head home. Need to confirm but count me in as a visitor if I can wangle it.

Simply don't know yet, depending on my workload around that time I MIGHT show up as a surprise guest.
The NEC located next to the airport is tempting, but time is not my friend this time of year... :(

Yep

Difficult to quantify how many forum members will attend, don’t forget we only have a core membership ( those who contribute to the forum, attend shows etc ) of probably less than 100, so if you get 20% of them of them attending in the middle of November you will be doing well. Hopefully though there will be lots more Jaguar enthusiasts that will visit the stand.

I have visited this show many times in the past but each year they kept adding another hall and if became impossible to do it all in a day. Plus the M6 in November in the dark is not a trip I relish any more, even in a ‘40. I suppose if you go just to visit one stand it would make it easier but then you will miss everything else.
Anyway guys thanks for keeping the flag flying for us, maybe if there was more information on the thread, who and what cars are attending, which hall you are in, theme etc it might help with attracting more forum members. Don’t forget you have given out the discount code so some members might be attending anyway without having confirmed.

i know its easy to google these things, but peeps can be lazy ,

so the inclusion of dates and times are always helpful to increase attendance

( from someone who hosts a monthly Jaguar breakfast meeting for the last 5 years )

just my thoughts

BB

ps , shift depending, i may be able to attend 8-)

We will be on stand 8-142.

Darren, who has done a great job of organising it, will be leading the stand with his beautiful Sovereign, Matt with his 4.0s, Chris with his XJR and myself with my XJ6.

As for you Pim, we will wait in the bar for you!
