• 2016 Conference – Nashville, TN – February 25-27, 2016

    The British Motor Trade Association is all about you—finding new sources, solutions and sales opportunities for you and your organization. Each year the BMTA meets to solve the world’s problems—at least those facing the British car hobby.
    The conference is open to all businesses, groups and entities that serve the British car hobby: shops, restorers, manufacturers, dealers, clubs, media, retailers, insurers, museums and more. If you think that a little networking can help, then you’re in the right place. Our regular attendees range from one-man shops to industry giants like Hagerty, Moss Motors, Victoria British and Classic Motorsports.
    Nashville is a family-friendly town, too, with plenty of activity available for spouses and other family members.
