While this the first ever Fully Charged LIVE, we are confident you will enjoy the show and we have already confirmed the following visitor attractions:
- An exhibition of renewable energy technologies
- A selection of interesting technologies as seen on Fully Charged
- Every electric vehicle in the UK
- The UK debut of the Tesla Tiny House
- 20 entertaining live sessions
- Ask the Experts area
- Prizes and promotions
- Much more to be announced in the run-up to the show
While The Fully Charged Show is based in Britain, about 2/3rds of our audience is from outside of the UK. Naturally, then we have received lots of interest from international visitors. Before you invest in your travel plans though you might reasonably ask is Fully Charged LIVE going to represent value for money.
The show is going to be delivered to a high standard with lots of exciting visitor attractions and live sessions and there will be plenty to do over a day's visit, however it is important to mention that is the first such event and as such it will not be the biggest of exhibitions with around 50 exhibitors. Furthermore, while it is on our roadmap to host events internationally in the future, we will not be doing so for at least 12 months. We hope that all of the above enables you to make an informed decision about attending.
Standard tickets are £29.50 per person inclusive of VAT, while tickets for senior citizens are £20 each and entry is free for those that are 15 years of age and under. For those individuals that support Robert Llewellyn's Fully Charged Show via the Patreon crowdfunding site, as a thank you tickets booked by patrons are only £17.50 per person inclusive of VAT. All tickets enable access on both days of the show.
A significant percentage of Fully Charged Show fans have plug-in electric vehicles, so it is likely that with thousands of visitors expected at Fully Charged LIVE, that there will be hundreds if not thousands of electric vehicles on-site. In all likelihood this will make it the biggest ever convening of electric vehicles at a venue in the UK. There are few, if any venues in the UK that could cope with that level of power demand and as such we recommend that visitors make alternative charging arrangements en route. Naturally, we will be communicating options in advance of Fully Charged LIVE to make the show as accessible as is possible.
There is a significant amount of vehicle parking on-site, this includes a few hundred spaces directly outside the exhibition venue (the Silverstone Wing) and thousands of spaces in car parks around the circuits. Visitors will be transported by bus to the Silverstone Wing from these car parks around the circuits. The areas will be marshalled on arrival.
We are still in discussion with a number of parties about test drive availability at the show, due to vehicle charging limitations this will not be a significant feature at Fully Charged LIVE 2018. We will be looking to develop this aspect of the show in future years.
The show opens at 10:00 on both days, but closes at 18:00 on day 1 (Saturday 9th June) and an hour earlier at 17:00 on day 2 (Sunday 10th June). Timetables of the content programme will be provided pre-event.
There will be one main catering area at the rear of Exhibition Hall 2 of the Silverstone Wing. Subject to ticket sales we may increase catering options closer to the event.
There will be around 20 live sessions in two theatres at the heart of the exhibition over the two days. Please note that the content will NOT be the same on each day, so please bear that in mind when you are considering on which day to attend. Live sessions will be hosted by Robert Llewellyn, Jonny Smith or Helen Czerski and will cover a number of relevant energy & transport topics. The presentation titles will be listed shortly. More information will be provide pre-event; there is no booking system for these events, so seating will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Ask the Experts area will be at the rear of Exhibition Hall 2 of the Silverstone Wing and will include experts from across the industry including the Renewable Energy Association, Hyperion Executive Search, Drive Electric and Chargemaster. Experts will focus on a number of different areas including electric vehicle ownership, electric vehicle charging, a variety of renewable technologies, as well as careers in the industry.
