"Participation in the 2012 show holds a number of benefits for the exhibitors, in particular our special finance options of Prime less1.7%, which benefit both exhibitors and prospective buyers visiting their stands.
"With more motor exhibitors expected at the Auto Show this year, they also stand a chance to win cash prizes for the best stand," he continued.
