Motorcycle Live is the UK’s biggest motorcycle show and a regular fixture on the WDA industry events calendar. The team were certainly revved up for this year’s show and it didn’t disappoint, with over 100,000 bike fans, exhibitors, influencers and celebrities flocking to the Birmingham NEC for 9 days of excellent two-wheeled entertainment.
While a large portion of the day was spent meeting clients and prospects, the WDA team were still able to get around most of the attractions, including the brand-new ‘Moto-Cirque’ live-action arena which featured some spectacular shows including Freestyle MX, street bikes, BMX and dance.
One of the key highlights for us was visiting The Social Hub that was situated in hall 4, giving WDA’s digital marketing team the opportunity to meet up with some of the MotoVloggers, bloggers and social influencers we work with when we’re delivering outreach campaigns for clients.
We’ll leave the last words to WDA’s neighbour and client Stuart Garner, CEO of Norton Motorcycles: “What a show, we’ve had an amazing week. It’s the biggest show we’ve ever done and we’ve had the biggest footfall we’ve ever seen on the stand, so a huge thank you to the organisers for making it happen. It’s been a record show for Norton and we hope everyone has enjoyed it as much as we have.”
Here’s the team’s favourite bits
