Access for the public will follow a press day on July 18 and exclusive entry for the motor trade on business day, which takes place on July 19.
“This is the second big change for the show”, says SMMT chief executive Christopher Macgowan. “In February we announced the new London venue and now we can confirm new dates for Britain's biggest consumer exhibition.
The move to July should bring warmer weather with more options for activity outside the halls. Late July also ensures the show coincides with school holidays, bringing more families to the event.”
The British International Motor Show will take place at ExCeL in London's Docklands. More details will be revealed at a press launch this summer.
