Well, I've been gone and done it. I can at last officially confirm that ADVENTURE OVERLAND has a new home - and new dates!

Rather then me waffling on, I'll repeat here the announcement I've been sending traders today:-


ADVENTURE OVERLAND SHOW 2013 TO DOUBLE IN SIZE …

NEW DATES!

NEW VENUE!

… AND BOOK A TRADE STAND THIS MONTH, IT’S HALF PRICE!



Sir/Madam,

So successful was the October 2012 launch of
ADVENTURE OVERLAND … The National 4x4, Bike & Trekking Travel Show
at Whilton Mill this year, based on feedback from traders, campers and day visitors it was
clear that both the dates and venue had be changed for the event to expand.

This we have done, so it is with great pleasure we can at last officially announce:-

The new dates are …

28-29 September 2013

The prestigious new venue is …

Stratford Racecourse
Stratford-upon-Avon
Warwickshire
CV37 9SE
England

www.stratfordracecourse.net


With far more space available, this allows us to increase the show size
by doubling the number of Trade Stands and the all-important footfall;
campers and day visitors. To celebrate, not only have Trade Stand fees
been reduced (something previously unheard of within show circles),
it also means advance-booking fees of up to 50% are now possible.

With the recession finally ending, this makes ADVENTURE OVERLAND
the best value-for-money outdoor show on the entire event circuit!

For the remainder of this month,
pitches cost half price!!!


Make no mistake, although the inaugural show was a great start,
AO`13 will be bigger and better in every way with visitor numbers
set to rise dramatically via a rigorous advertising campaign.

ADVENTURE OVERLAND is the one event in 2013
you really can’t afford to miss!


Regards,

Tom Mc
[AO`13 Organiser]

As it happens, I haven't even had time to update the event website yet, but I had to announce the show's new venue and dates before anyone else nicked the same slot in the calender.

AO`13 now avoids clashing with the London2Brighton Land Rover Run, and also Newbury 4x4 Autojumble which next year has been forward by one week, so would otherwise have been on the same weekend at AO`13.

Phew!

You've hit the nail on the head horace, it's a show for 'us'. Been wanting to go to one for years, but with nothing around I simply started one myself.

Talking of which ...

This afternoon I've introduced a “2-wheel adventure zone” within the showground. This will encompass both motorised and pedal-power, so will be a big step forward for the event!

Did say AO`13 was going to be BIG!

Good news! Now I can actually pick dates for an October trip if life and budgets allow. Let me know if you are going to be looking for volunteers to help out.

Yep, couldn't believe my luck to find such an upmarket venue. It's just what ADVENTURE OVERLAND needed to become a major date in the event calendar, and like I say, with so much space, the show can continue to grow for years to come.

Dying to post an aerial shot as you'll really see what I mean about space, but first I have to make certain I'm not infringing anybody's copyright before doing so - don't want a large bill landing on the door mat. The photo I found states at the bottom of the page ...

All images are © www.webbavi?????????.co.uk (best I don't even reproduce their website just in case!!!) and may not be copied, saved, hotlinked or reproduced without written permission. Cyber-shoplifters will be prosecuted. To reproduce these images you must first purchase the digital file and licence. Unauthorized users of my photographs will be charged at least £600.00 per photo.

Best I don't reproduce the image or a link through to it then. That said, if you were to Google "aerial shot of Stratford Racecourse" you will almost certainly find the same shot as I did. Wink

The buildings you will see in the middle of the 'V' are a cafeteria, a toilet & shower block and a large room with a licensed bar they normally use for betting. In our case this room will be the main focal point at the heart of the show as it will house the Seminar Sessions, so everything else such as Trade Stands, Display Vehicles, Club Display Stands and Camping will surround these buildings. As I said, room to expand!

Well done Tom, will go have a look. Since it isn't that far, might even go have a wander around one day when it is open.

Likewise, it'll be good to see the place in action before we get there. I tell you, people will be impressed.

You could say that, thankfully I caught it early so no damage done. Quite the opposite in fact! "Every cloud ...." an' all that.

Yep, I really needed to keep those dates, phew!!! Very Happy

Nearly forgot, apart from Goodwinch and Touring Gear who supported the event from the off, AO`13 has its first new sponsor -

Bushcraft Activity Area sponsored by Woodland Ways - www.woodland-ways.co.uk clapping

The latest Trade Plan of AO`13 is now available for viewing. Does anyone know how I can place a link to the Powerpoint file on this forum? I have managed to save it as a pdf file but that's as far as my knowledge goes. Ta!
