With the prospect of the largest NE1 Newcastle Motor Show ever in 2017, we have secured a record number of partners and sponsors for the event this year, including Headline Sponsor DFDSLloyd Newcastle BMW as Dealer Partners, and intu Eldon Square as Fanzone Sponsors.


We are tremendously fortunate to have attracted such a wide and diverse range of partners and are incredibly proud to be working with such large brands, and local institutions.



Ferry operator DFDS is this year’s headline sponsor of the NE1 Newcastle Motor Show.

DFDS operate a daily ferry service from North Shields to Amsterdam and the route provides a perfect opportunity to take your car to Europe.


Stay local and enjoy Holland’s city culture and sandy beaches, head to Germany’s stunning Rhine and Moselle valleys or drive south to fabulous France. DFDS have created a number of suggested touring itineraries for inspiration on places to visit.


Two large cruise ferries operate on the route to Holland. Onboard you’ll find 6 restaurants, 4 bars with live entertainment, shops, cinema, casino and play areas. And of course, there are outdoor deck areas where you can relax and take in the fresh sea air.

Crossings are overnight, departing at 5pm and arriving 9.30am the following morning. All bookings include a comfortable en suite cabin so you can have a good night’s sleep before your onward journey.

“The event surpassed our expectations, Benfield had to be involved in such a unique motoring event in our home town, but the experience was so much more than we could have hoped for – the crowds and the cars were amazing, not to mention the phenomenal business leads the event generated for us.

“It was great to be able to take our fantastic array of cars out of the showroom and onto the streets. We loved it and the sentiment was echoed by the public and the many thousands of visitors who turnout throughout the weekend to exclusively view our cars.

“It was also an added bonus for Benfield to receive so much positive media and social media coverage crediting our support for the event and it was a great pleasure to work with the NE1 PR team and Newcastle Council throughout.”


North East Audi

North East Audi were delighted to be a main sponsor of the inaugural NE1 Motor Show, which was an exciting and high-profile part of the region’s headline events calendar.

Part of the Benfield Motor Group, North East Audi has four North East based dealerships, Audi Newcastle, Audi Tyneside, Audi Wearside and Audi Teesside.

2016's Dealer Display areas set the bar high with everyone involved pulling out all the stops to make the NE1 Newcastle Motor Show bigger and better than last year.
