Beaulieu has announced the appointment of Guido Devreker as the European Automotive Consultant promoting Beaulieu’s motoring events and the National Motor Museum to international visitors in France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.
Belgium-based Guido, who has worked as a freelance automotive journalist for over 40 years, will represent Beaulieu on the 2020 European classic car show circuit beginning with Rétromobile in Paris next week and followed by Techno Classica Essen in Germany in March.
Guido previously worked as a sales manager in the automotive industry and enjoys attending classic car shows and rallies, both as a visitor and exhibitor, with a particular interest in scale model cars. His appointment follows the sad passing of André de Groot last July, who had carried out a similar role for Beaulieu since 2007.*
Beaulieu’s Commercial Director Stephen Munn said: “We welcome thousands of classic motoring enthusiasts from mainland Europe to Beaulieu every year, both as visitors and exhibitors at our world-renowned Spring and International Autojumbles. Guido, who speaks French, Dutch and German, as well as English, will be a great addition to our marketing and PR team and will help us to engage with our European audience, both at the classic motor shows and through his international motoring press contacts.”
On the south coast of England, Beaulieu is home to the National Motor Museum which tells the story of British motoring through its world-famous collection of more than 280 vehicles. Its packed calendar of acclaimed events includes award-winning International Autojumble, which has been an unmissable date on the classic car calendar for more than 50 years and is the biggest autojumble this side of the Atlantic.
Spring Autojumble on May 16th & 17th will gather more than 1,000 stands offering classic car parts, motoring literature, automobilia and classics for sale. Special displays for 2020 include a 60th anniversary celebration by Saab Owners Club GB, 50th birthday celebration by Austin A30 & A35 Owners’ Club and the popular MoggyFest.
International Autojumble on September 5th & 6th will offer motoring bargains at 2,000-plus stands as well as the new display Forgotten Favourites celebrating once-common classics of the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties. Bonhams auction will offer rare finds at the event on the Saturday, while popular Trunk Traders returns on the Sunday.
Event tickets include entry to the whole attraction, including the National Motor Museum, World of Top Gear, On Screen Cars, the ancestral Montagu home of Palace House, Secret Army exhibition, Beaulieu Abbey and the grounds and gardens. Also new from March 15th is the adventurous new play area Little Beaulieu, for family fun all together. For tickets and details click here.
