“It seems just like yesterday when we kicked off this show,” said show producer Len Sammons who has confirmed the events traditional date once again at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.
“The first Motorsports show took place just up the road in Valley Forge,” Sammons recalled. “The 30 years went fast and wow has the show grown. We are planning a big three day celebration, a party for our 2015 event. We are very excited to have Pioneer, Sunoco, Insinger and Miller Beer all return to be part of what we feel will be one of the biggest show we have ever produced.”
All exhibitors from the 2014 edition of the show should have already received the new show brochure which reflects an exciting new floor plan that offers expanded space and a new design that will offer more room for interactive displays. The stage has been moved out of D-Hall into its own room. Other changes have been made to create a more consistent traffic flow throughout the main exhibit area.
The 2014 exhibitors have until July 31, 2014 to reserve the same display space or even increase their space for Motorsports 2015. Space reservations for past exhibitors must include a 25% deposit with the booth order. Past exhibitors that have had their past booth location impacted by the new floor layout or would like to change their display location should be in touch with Tim Hogue as soon as possible so that every effort can be made to accommodate that request.
After August 1st all space not reserved will be open to all.
“We are in the process of putting together some exciting plans for the 30th Anniversary,” said Sammons. “We will be making many announcements regarding plans for the show in the future.”
For those who have not been exhibitors or have missed a year or two the beautiful new show brochure is available along with a show floor plan by contacting Danny Sammons or Tim Hogue at 609.888.3618. They can also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
