JAE 2017 Car Club Reps meeting
JAE is like no other event in so many ways. One of the things that makes JAE unique is the Car Club Reps meeting. Which other event invites you to the venue mnonths before the event?
The Club Reps Meet was first held at East of England Showground in 2005 as a way to help club and team organisers better understand the new venue and to hear more about our great plans for JAE. Every year since then we have held a Reps Meet to show you what we have planned but, most importantly, to listen to ideas that you have and to answer your questions. With a new venue comes new layouts and for the club organisers a new way to present their clubs. With new challenges comes new opportunities and with a new venue comes a whole new way of working.
For 2017 and beyond we are really proud to say we are back at Peterborough. No longer the East of England Showground this is now Peterborough Arena. The investment in the venue while we have been away is huge. The people running it and working alongside us at the venue are all new. For JAE 2017 the new venue offers us so much more than we had before. So, if you want to find out what's going on, comer along and hear at first hand all our plans for JAE 2017.
It's free, all you need to do is just turn up. If you're on Facebook please sign up so we know you're coming: Sign up here
See you there!
The JAE shop will allow you to book club space, order tickets - individual, family and bulk - and to reserve trade space - indoor and outdoor. Before that goes live we want to give you the chance to see the new layout for our new (old) venue. Those of you who have been to Peterborough Arena before - whether with JAE all those years ago or maybe at another event - will know the venue well. Others perhaps less so and for that reason we hope this will help orientate you to the new venue.
Club spaces will be booked by the amount you need, as always, but we have tried to make it better for clubs to display by making the grass 'islands' all one plot where possible; big plots for big clubs, small plots for small clubs. With the additional space we also now have a much bigger area for families or those who want a quiet camping area. We also have a bigger space for general camping (non-car club people) and, after two years at Newark, can now bring back the Japanese Car Day Visitor park and display.
But it's not just the bigger space and the outdoor area that's a great step forward, Show n Shine and many more elements will now be moved indoors, along with other events and activities we are working on.
See you all at JAE in September, and for the Club Reps, see you at the Reps Meeting in a few months time!
New for 2017 we have two discount offers for car clubs and individuals.
The entry price for 2017 has not changed but we have something exciting to offer car clubs who want to order in bulk and for families.
The JAE Full Entry ticket includes access to all the good stuff JAE lays on, whether its the HKS IKO competition, Dodo Juice Show n Shine, off-road 4x4 course and Fireworks Display. On top of that it also includes your camping for the entire event. Gates open at midday on Thursday 31 August and stay open for the duration of the event so you can arrive any time and come and go as you please. A JAE Full Entry Ticket is £45 per person
JAE Day Visitor passes are available on the gate only from 10:00 on Saturday 2 September. Access to all the JAE fun stuff the same as everyone else, however you cannot put your car on a Car Club stand but we will have a day display parking area for you to show off your pride and joy. Saturday Day Visitor passes are £20 per person
Children under 12 accompanied by an adult get in for FREE at JAE
New for 2017
Oder your tickets in bulk and for every ten tickets you order we will give you one ticket for FREE. For car clubs that means every time you order your book of ten a club plot is more than paid for. This offer will be limited until the end of February 2017 and is an early-bird offer for clubs and groups to get a discount of their tickets. Buy 10 - get 1 free!
New for 2017 is the JAE Family Ticket. A family of two adults and up to three children under 16 can get in on one ticket. The ticket per adult price is the same but now you can bring up to three children with you right up to the age of 16. We need you all to arrive together as it will be a single ticket and we may ask to verify the age of your children but other than that it's simple, just order your JAE Family Ticket. These are available only in advance and are £90 for the entire family
Tickets will go on sale in January 2017. Bulk discounts will only be available until the end of March 2017.
