Quick walk-around of the all-new rebooted 2021 British Motor Show at Farnborough International Exhibition Centre that started today and runs till Sunday – I’m hosting the Tech Theatre in Hall 5 over the next few days (come and see me!!).

Rousing Speech for Car Meets!

Feel free to copy and reuse this!

Back in 2013 for our last Motoring Middle East Car Meet in Dubai’s Festival City, we had poured all our efforts into creating a well-organised event, and as such had a large contingent of volunteers and staff helping us out.

And with the new Car Meet season soon upon us here in the Middle East, I welcome and invite all organisers to reuse it for their own events. Believe me, I know what it’s like. Good luck!
