FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHY HAVE WE LAUNCHED THIS PLATFORM?

With events across Europe being forced to postpone until the Summer of 2021, it’s evident the industry needs a platform NOW to network, source products and discuss motorsport with like-minded individuals. Webinars have a purpose, but they don’t offer that face to face service we need to keep up-to-date with the industry and make new contacts.

We can’t wait until the Summer, so we have created a platform that enables you to do all things you would usually achieve at a trade show but online.

WHAT CAN IT DO THAT AN EXPO OR ZOOM CAN'T

We are not looking to take anything away from expo’s or events; in our eyes, they are irreplaceable. We need them back as soon as possible, but until then, business meetings need to happen, especially now at this prime time.

Most online events consist of too many people on a call, unable to communicate successfully. Still, our platform enables you to jump from table to table of all sizes and network with like-minded professionals.

What CAN I EXPECT FOR MY £25* TICKET?

Imagine networking at a social evening or expo and being able to walk over, introduce yourself and make a new contact.

This, is what MsD LIVE The Motorsport Trade Event offers. We are re-engaging with the market, allowing you to meet with up to 1,000 people at the prime time in the season.Can you afford to miss out on this “MUST ATTEND” event for anyone in motorsport?

HOW DOES IT WORK?

*Early bird tickets are £25 until 31st December 2020 and £45 from 1st January 2021
