PostSubject: HUBB UK 2014 - Donington Park - 19th to 22nd June   Wed Jul 10, 2013 8:07 pm

Hi All,

Thanks once again to Tom for the permission to post on here and for all the support from you guys at the HUBB UK event a few weeks ago - especially Kevin and Dilys who did a fantastic job as part of the volunteer crew. You can read some of the feedback we've received on this page.

Online registration for HUBB UK 2014 is now live and you'll see we're making a variety of improvements to make next year's event even better.

To maintain the kind of atmosphere we've been nurturing over the last 13 years, we still won't be offering day tickets. However, we are introducing 2-day event passes for the Thursday and Friday or the Saturday and Sunday. The best value on those and the full 4-day passes is to be had by registering before the end of August. All the pricing info is on the event page via the link above.

Presenters get free registration, so if you have a travelling tale to tell or technical expertise to share do please consider giving a presentation, demo or workshop.

I've already contacted Tom about this forum and/or the Adventure Overland Show having a free stand at the event again. Horizons Unlimited will be having a stand at Adventure Overland in September, so you'll have the opportunity to come and talk to me in person if you'd like to know more about HUBB UK and how you can get involved.

In the meantime, here's a brief flavour of what HUBB UK was like this year....

PostSubject: Last day for lowest rates   Sat Aug 31, 2013 8:13 pm

A quick reminder for those of you planning to attend the HUBB UK 2014 event....

Today is the last opportunity to register online for an event pass at the lowest rate (£45 for a full 4-day pass or £30 for a 2-day).

The cut-off will be around 9pm this evening, after which the discounts reduce.

I will definitely be going back. I really do enjoy the format and hopefully the 4x4 crowd starts to get more involved.

Like last year the forum and AO2014 are hosting a stand I have volunteered  to man it with a few others as I know Tom and some other forum members are travelling to Germany for the Bad Kiss event which coincides.

On the stand will be handing out leaflets and information on the AO 2014 show, Travel 4x4 forum and Landy Live 2015.

Last year Tom single handedly collated together pictures and banners etc to publicise the forum and the event to try and get the mainly bike orientated visitors to attend AO2013.

This year we would like contributions from forum members of pictures and maybe stories to advertise both the forum and show.
So come on guys it's your forum help us to publicise it because the more members the more travel information and advice we can pass on to each other !

Embarassed  Sorry made a double post, forgot I posted above,

So have deleted other post, this was in the other post, so this is going to be Tom's stand at the HUBB so to all those that have volunteered nice to have your surport, and any more will be welcome.

Hi all this is an update for the show, we have acquired a stand for the forum to promote the forum also the Overland Travel show, and are asking if any members would like to come and help out and have a great weekend. Or come and have a tea and a chat with us.
I am also organizing a competition for the best 4x4 in show their will be some prizes, so you could just come along and show of your pride and joy, their are lots of seminars of people talking about their trips around the world, mainly bikers but their are a few talking about 4x4's, if you are thinking about a trip around the world or Europe, you will be able to get some very good advice, and meet up with some great people who like you love to travel.  cheers  clapping  clinking teacups

Hi Guys. When do most people arrive & leave the HUBB event - I notice after booking camping is available on the Wednesday night and also on the last (sunday) night.

Any tips on the best area to camp?

Cheers & see you there, Dave.  cheers1

I should be pulling in about midday on Wednesday. Kevin will be there ahead of me I believe. The camping area isn't huge so just depends on whether you want to be near the toilets/showers...which also may put you close to the noiseiest area...or back in a corner. Actually given the motorcycle raceway and the steady stream of cargo flights taking off over our heads...quiet spots aren't really a huge option.

James

Well, almost HUBB time! Weather not looking too bad. I will be heading off tomorrow (Wednesday) and meet Kevin who should be there today I believe. Make sure we stake out a good spot for the stand.

I have been spending my last few evenings editing together a new version of all the unused footage from our N.E. Morocco trip last year. The Youtube version is fine, but just an overview. Our presentation is at 13:00 on Friday and we have an hour to fill...so figured a 13 minute video would leave a lot of empty time to chat intelligently. So now we will have a 40-minute version with mostly unseen footage and more info about the actual nuts and bolts of the trip.

Also looking forward to having a few beers, getting the maps out and talking through our return to N.E. Morocco next year, the Grand Erg Occidental crossing and whatever Gary has up his sleeve for Europe...

James

Well, back from HUBB 2014 and had a great time as always. The weather certainly cooperated! Got to attend quite a few presentations on various adventure travel topics as well as present our film from our N.E. Morocco trip last year. Handed out lots of leaflets for AO 2014 and generally promoted the forum and 4x4 adventure travel. So I would say mission accomplished.
