2011 MIA Members' Business Lounge at Autosport International

13 January 2011

Location: NEC, Birmingham

MIA Business Lounge at Autosport International 2012
(Hall 8, stand 8020)


STOP PRESS! MIA Member BLOODHOUND SSC is to feature on the MIA Members' Business Lounge at Autosport International

The MIA is proud to announce the appearance of the BLOODHOUND SSC on our MIA Members' Business Lounge at Autosport International in January. This fascinating achievement of engineering innovation mirrors many of our own cross-sector initiatives, by demonstrating how skills and technology from motorsport, defence and aerospace, among many others, are being combined in preparation for the seemingly impossible challenge of the 1,000 mph FIA World Land Speed record in 2012.  For more information, please go to http://www.bloodhoundssc.com.

The annual Autosport International Show at the NEC, Birmingham is the largest exhibition for motorsport and high performance companies in Europe. Over the two trade days (Thursday 12th and Friday 13th January 2012) more than 28,000 trade visitors will transact over £400 million of business. The show continues, with a public bias, for two further days (Saturday and Sunday) until January 15th, attracting another 66,000 visitors. For more information, please visit www.autosport-international.com.

The centrally located MIA Business Lounge, at the heart of the show, has become the meeting place for the Motorsport Business Community. It enables MIA members, their guests and international buyers to meet, network and conduct important business meetings in a professional but relaxed atmosphere. The MIA Business Lounge attracts over 2,000 visitors on both trade days, many of whom are international - as MIA members export over 60% of their sales.

The organisers, Haymarket Exhibitions Ltd, have chosen to co-locate their show’s International Business Centre immediately alongside the MIA Members’ Lounge to maximise networking possibilities. Both these areas are designed to operate as one large meeting and hospitality space. There will be three confidential meeting areas, a central kitchen, a substantial open 'piazza' with tables and chairs, a central reception desk and a cloakroom.

Due to the popularity of the MIA Business Lounge, we would ask respectfully that members use it for limited periods only throughout the show and not as a permanent base. This will allow all members to enjoy full use of the facility. 

Complimentary Meeting Areas

Private meeting areas are available on the stand for MIA members' to book for 30 min slots.
