Eikon Exhibition Centre hosts extensive display of vehicles for disabled people


14 May 2018 – This Summer, The Big Event Northern Ireland returns, offering disabled motorists and their families the chance to discover worry-free motoring with the Motability Scheme. The country’s largest display of vehicles for disabled people will set up home at the Eikon Exhibition Centre on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 June following a hugely successful event in 2016.


Free to attend and with free parking for all visitors, it will kick start the Motability Scheme’s programme of events throughout the UK this summer.


Visitors to The Big Event will have the chance to get behind the wheel alongside a professional driving instructor and test drive a range of vehicles, including a wide selection fitted with popular driving adaptations. Guests can book a test drive on the day by presenting their full driving licence to the test drive team.


The Big Event will showcase over 65 vehicles from leading manufacturers including Ford, Vauxhall, Hyundai, and more. There will be a number of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) on display plus a range of vehicle adaptations and scooters. Motability Scheme advisors will be on hand throughout the event providing advice and useful information about the Scheme.


An event for the whole family to enjoy, The Big Event has free balloon modelling, a bouncy castle, free face painting and of course the chance to say hello to the Motability Scheme mascot, Billy the Bear. Plus, on arrival you’ll be treated to a token for a free cup of tea or coffee.


In conjunction with The Big Event, Disability Action will also be hosting Northern Ireland’s largest disability exhibition. That’s two days, two great events, all in one place.
