IMIE Marketing Director Kirsty Perkinson said, "This year's show is set to be even bigger and more exciting than ever before. Whilst we have the largest collection of cars under one roof in the UK, the Show is not just for petrol-heads. With fun features like the Kidz Car Zone, the Marine Experience and all new Motor Show Music Festival, there really is something for everyone."
