WOW I canít believe the show is over, and what a day!
Also thank you for battling through the weather and still showing up!
I am very pleased to say that we will be doing the show again next year and hopefully for many years to come!
I really hope we put on a show that you enjoyed and you felt was worthwhile, it was the first show and I know itís not the likes of MITP or Mini Festival (yet) but I hope we created something that New MINI Owners could call their own! We arenít a big event company, itís just me a MINI enthusiast and my family helping out on the day.
We had over 600 people attend the show yesterday which was great for the first year and with the weather the way it was!
We had 250 Minis On display which was a great site.
We raised a fantastic £240 for Cancer research in memory of GP Mick so thank you!
We had 15 Traders who all said it was a great day and better than expected so thank you for supporting them! Many ran out of products very quickly. I know some people have said it needed more traders, we would all love that, but it is very difficult to get traders to commit, I thought the ones who did attend made a great effort and did us proud. When contacting traders some said that itís not something they are interested in, others didnít have time this year and others wouldnít commit as it was the first show so hopefully we will get more on board next year!
I think the demos worked well, after your opinions on this? Big thanks to Autobrite for doing those.
We welcome all feedback, good and bad, you guys make the show so we want you to be happy, so without knowing what you thought we canít improve for next year! If you could take 5 minutes just to fill out a quick feedback form that would be great! Show Feedback | The Big Mini Show
Thanks again for all the support. I will be confirming next yearís date within the next month or so.
See you all in 2014 unless I see you at a show or run soon!
Keep It MINI
