IMPORTANT NOTICE: NHS TEST AND TRACE

For the health and safety of all entrants, your personal details including name and contact telephone number may be shared with NHS Test and Trace, if required, as part of the UK Government's ongoing COVID-19 response.

This information will only be used by them where necessary to help stop the spread of COVID.

If you have any concerns or do not wish to have your personal details shared, please contact privacy@clarionevents.com.

Important Scam Warning

Exhibitors are being targeted by companies claiming to be, or work with, event organisers. They use existing event branding and may appear genuine.  In the past this has included directories and hotel bookings but companies are now also claiming they can sell visitor data from events. This is not the case.

Visitor Data:
Scammers may try to persuade exhibitors to ‘buy’ attendee lists. Please be assured we never share our data with any third parties and never will. The only way to reach the Classic Motor Show audience is by including a promotion or offer in our Motor Events Offers email or by having a story featured in our show newsletters.

Show Guide:
There are a number of companies that contact exhibitors claiming to be the official show guide provider. They then use a number of fraudulent means to extract payment for entries in these guides. Our show guide production is currently under review but when finalised exhibitors will be contacted from the show email address info@necclassicmotorshow.com to advise them of the suppliers details and how they can include their details. Exhibitor listings will only be collected via the event website Ezone.
