No change to NEC park­ing charges

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

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.’
