ScooterExpo – a fabulous new show

This weekend saw the doors open for ScooterExpo, an event that had been eight months in the planning, although in my mind for a fair bit longer than that.
While I may have first considered the concept of a new scooter event prior to launching ScooterNova magazine back in 2017, it couldn’t have happened without the help of my friend Iggy at ScooterLab UK. After sharing ideas of an event organised by the both of us, we sat down at the end of 2018 to discuss the potential, various suggestions, and after he came up with the venue, ScooterExpo was born – the first joint event by ScooterNova magazine and SLUK.

ScooterExpo – click & collect

This Sunday sees the first ScooterExpo take place, a new event jointly organised by ScooterNova magazine and SLUK.

Along with 100 of the country’s finest scooters to admire and some of the best scooter traders in the land will of course be the ScooterNova magazine stall. So if you’ve been meaning to buy some magazine storage cases but not got round to it yet, need to renew your subscription, fancy a new T-shirt or want to check out the new colour options of our retro leather key holders, you’ll find the ScooterNova stall in Hall 1. And if you want to collect anything in particular, order online in the usual way and we will refund the postage upon collection.

See you Sunday!

Scooters, traders, deals & more at ScooterExpo

This Sunday will see our new joint ScooterLab/ScooterNova show arrive at the hallowed halls of Alfreton Leisure Centre, a venue steeped in scootering history. Home of the iconic NSRA Trade & Custom shows from 1989-1991. And have we got a great line up for you!

We’d like to thank our sponsors for showing faith in us, Lexham Insurance (check out their stand for a chance to win a year’s free insurance) and Putoline Lubricants  (visit their stand to get all your questions about oils, eprotectors and octane boosters answered). Of course, we’d also like to thank all the other exhibitors and traders for jumping on board. We’d also like to thank all the showgoers who have helped to create a buzz about the event before it has even happened. We hope you all come along and have a great day out. 

Here’s all the pre-show info you should need…

Glyn Dove’s Pseudo Satisfaction…
…and Nick Jolly’s Hall of Fame were at Alfreton in 1991. When was the last time you saw either of these scooters out and about? Both have been dusted off just for this show.
Wake has only been shown twice since it was rebuilt and featured in edition 10 of ScooterNova magazine. It will be at Alfreton at the weekend along with potentially two other ex-Jeremy Howlett bikes, including Dazzle.
