The first ever online version of The Big Event saw 3,200 disabled motorists, carers and their friends and families tune into learn about the Motability Scheme last month.
The online event, which took place on August 6-7, showcased the UK’s largest online display of vehicles available on the Motability Scheme.
Visitors were able to interact with exhibitors including partners such as KwikFit, RSA and RAC, as well as manufacturers who displayed popular makes and models available to lease through the Scheme.
This included 27 car manufacturers, 24 Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles and adaptation suppliers and 12 powered wheelchair and scooter manufacturers.
Visitors were also able to browse hundreds of documents and videos, as well as connect with exhibitors through live chat. All this useful information apart from the live chat function is still available to explore until the event officially closes at the end of September.
Louise Vranic, The Big Event organiser, at Motability Operations, said: “It was great that so many visitors found The Big Event online useful and informative, as we were so please by the amount of content and support provided by exhibitors and Scheme partners. We knew it would be hard to replace our physical events, where visitors can explore vehicles first-hand and test drive them.
“We hope that this online event has helped to bridge the gap and also attract visitors who have previously been unable to attend our physical events. We are looking forward to 2022, where we will be back with a mixture of physical and online events, so we can continue to bring our One Big Day programme to as many people as possible.”
