No change to NEC parking charges
Clarion Events says that the NEC’s daily parking charges during the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show will stay. The organiser was criticised when it emerged that vistors to other NEC shows, like the Autumn Fair, don’t pay the £12 charge.
A spokesman for Clarion points out that Autumn Fair is a trade show. ‘Business to business events often include parking as part of their tenancy agreements with the venue and pass on the costs of parking to their exhibitors,’ he says. ‘If the Classic Motor Show took on the parking costs, this would result in higher ticket prices and we would not be able to offer clubs free stand space.’
