The Northern edition of regional car mechanics’ event MechanEx 2011 saw visitor numbers increase as a result of moving from Doncaster Racecourse to the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate.
According to Laura Scott, sales manager for show organiser Hamerville Magazines, MechanEx 2011 brought 1,051 visitors, approximately 35 per cent up on the Doncaster event last year.
“We felt we could attract a wider audience moving from Doncaster, because there would be a wider reach” Scott told EN. “It’s quite a specific show and audience, looking at independent garage owners and technicians, but we were happy with it and we will certainly stay in Harrogate for next year.”
Hamerville runs three other MechanEx events at Westpoint Arena (March), Stoneleigh Park (September) and Sandown Park (November).
The Yorkhire Event Centre also won the launch of the Yorkshire Family Show, to take place on 20 and 21 August 2011.
