A car launch is a product event to introduce a new model or design to the market. It will often be the first time the wider industry will be seeing the car in person, and it’s an opportunity for them to get to know the look and feel of the car, to find out the specs, and to understand how it differs from previous models and other brands. It’s a great opportunity to introduce your brand to different markets and as well as key industry figures.
Hosting a car launch is crucial for getting journalists, influencers and dealerships excited about your new offering, so it’s important the venue is well suited for the event. Car launches require plenty of room and drive in access, and are ideally blank canvas venues or warehouses. As London is the hub of the media and business in the UK, it’s perfectly suited to ensure your key guests will be able to come.
