With a stack of clubs already having booked their stands it looks like JAE 2016 could even break the records of 2105 - our biggest event ever! The new venue with all it has to offer certainly seems to be working and for 2016 we are going to do even more. New content is being added in the main arena for you to watch and take part in and a bigger IKO with more events is added to with some additional activities taking place in the 4x4 course and runway as well as an all new Show n Shine competition!
With the new, bigger venue and all the new content comes challenges but we are determined to keep JAE as the ultimate Japanese car show for the UK and Europe and to keep adding more, doing more, offering more.
Tickets for JAE2016 will go on sale in January. There will be no Sunday day ticket. Sunday we will have activities and events going on but we see it as a day to chill and unwind after the fun and excesses of the weekend. A time to relax and say a few last farewells of the season. There will still be stuff to do but we want to make Saturday the event the locals come to and the one day visitors come to see. That means some changes to ticket pricing. We've also taken your feedback on ticket pricing and recognise that charging £5 more for Thursday is not always seen as fair. For many clubs those setting up come on Thursday and that means those doing the work pay more. With little to offer on Thursday - other than another night of socialising and drinking! - it seems the main events start on Friday. So we've ditched the different fees and now there's a one flat fee whenever you arrive and stay. There is still a discount for advanced booking. Again we've listened to the clubs and now the difference between advance and on the gate is more. That helps club reps plan and prepare better as they will have a better idea of numbers, encouraging more people to book early.
New ticket prices are as follows:
Full event ticket (in advance) £45 per person
Full event ticket (on the gate) £60 per person
Saturday day visitor (no car entry) £20 per person
Children under 12 (with an adult) FREE
JAE 2016 is going to be bigger than ever with much more to see and do and a whole lot more for you to enjoy! See you all at JAE!!!!
