The smart Festival
Please note that smart Retailers have today been advised that smart UK
will not be hosting a smart Festival in 2013.
We know that this
will be disappointing to many and there is always considerable, and
continued, interest in such an event.
Importantly however, thesmartclub has been engaged with smart
throughout smart’s recent decision making process and we concur
with smart UK’s decision regarding The smart Festival in 2013.
The 2012 smart
Festival was a continued evolution of previous year’s events.
Indeed, the current format had evolved from the earlier
‘Destination Brooklands’ events (2006 to 2008) with several
small changes from 2009 onwards leading to 'The smart Festival'
experienced last year.
and thesmartclub are keen to ensure that each event brings smart
owners, prospective owners and enthusiasts something very special
and equally, something different from previous years.
Every year, hundreds of attendees complete thesmartclub’s
post event feedback form and, as promised, thesmartclub shares that
post event feedback from each Festival with smart UK. There’s no doubt
that 'The smart Festival' is popular but feedback has also shown that
the event does need to be ‘refreshed’ and avoid the risk of it
being ‘more of the same’ each year.
As such, planning
is already underway for major events in 2014 and you can be sure
that thesmartclub will continue to play a key role in ensuring that
such events bring you the enjoyment, innovation and experiences you
have come to expect from such a collaborative approach with smart.
The fact that there
will be no smart Festival in 2013 gives everyone that opportunity to
achieve these goals.
