Motability’s One Big Day Events Are Back

February 28, 2022

A press release from Motability:

Exciting news: face-to-face Motability Scheme events will be back for the 2022 One Big Day programme. These events offer the perfect chance for disabled motorists and their families to find out everything they need to know about the Scheme, see the latest range of products available and have their questions answered by Scheme experts. New for 2022 at The Big Event, is an Electric Vehicle Hub where visitors can discover more about what to consider before deciding if an electric vehicle is right for them.

The events programme will kick off on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 May 2022 with The Big Event at the NEC in Birmingham. The flagship show houses the Scheme’s largest display of cars, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs), powered wheelchairs and scooters available on the Motability Scheme. In addition to the event in Birmingham, there will be three regional One Big Day events taking place across the UK. Every event offers free entry with plenty of free parking.

The 2022 event dates are:

  • Friday 20 and Saturday 21 May, The Big Event at the NEC, Birmingham
  • Saturday 23 July, One Big Day at Westpoint, Exeter
  • Saturday 13 August, One Big Day at Yorkshire Event Centre, Harrogate
  • Saturday 17 September, One Big Day at Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh

The Big Event will also be available online, meaning the live expert Speaker Sessions and event footage from across the two-day event, will be available to view from the comfort of home.

The Big Event at the NEC is the largest show of the year, but all the events have a wide range of cars available to explore, including Electric Vehicles, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs), adaptations, scooters and powered wheelchairs. There are also helpful advisors on-hand to answer questions about the Scheme, as well as representatives from the Scheme partners, RAC, RSAM and Kwik Fit.

The family-friendly events are free to attend, and children can meet the Scheme mascot, Billy the Bear, who is always happy to take selfies. There will also be a children’s play area as well as cafés, plenty of seating, and accessible toilet facilities. Ear defenders are available at all the events, and a sensory room, providing a quite space for those who need it, can be found at each venue.
