All this week, Canary Wharf will be hosting the 2007 Motorexpo. To quote the website:
During Motorexpo week the Canary Wharf estate is literally transformed into a giant showroom for the latest vehicles, enabling Canary Wharf workers to view the latest vehicles right on their doorstep.
Despite the rapid growth and popularity of the show, visitors can still actually get close to cars & motorcycles on display, with a number of manufacturers offering test drives from their stand. This, combined with other interactive features such as the Land Rover Experience, adds an interactive flavour to the show that has become so popular in recent years.
With over 40 of the world’s leading manufacturers exhibiting over 200 of the latest cars and bikes, and over 200 shops, bars & restaurants on the Canary Wharf estate, the Motorexpo offers a unique and enjoyable experience for visitors.
They’ve even got a ‘Green Zone’, where exhibitors like BP will try to convince you that they’re not utterly evil. We’ll leave it to you to judge for yourselves how sound their environmental credentials are…
