The Luxury Motor Show was founded by three entrepreneurial car enthusiasts who realised that most of the key car shows are located outside of the Midlands. Having discovered this opportunity and an ideal venue which offers a point of difference, the idea of the Luxury Motor Show was born!
The inaugural Luxury Motor Show took place in May 2011. Since then a show has taken place in 2014 and 2015. Every show has been a success and with each year the organisers learned so much on what and how to improve for the next show. With this in mind, the 2017 event plans to be a much greater success, with significant infrastructure/venue improvement and investment taking place to ensure it becomes the best show to date.
