This Just in off the Power Big Meet website….
POWER BIG MEET NUMBER 40 means BIG CHANGE for the biggest car show in the world! 25.000 cars expected!
Yes its official! Power Big Meet 2017 – July 6-8 – moves from Västerås to a new location: city of Lidköping located about 200 km southwest of Västerås. And 100 km northeast of Swedens second biggest city Gothenburg. This is a major anouncement – so please spread the word!!!!!!!!!!!!
The move is due to the fact that the airfield thats been home to Power Big Meet for 32 years is plain and simple too small for the 40th jubilee. We expect 20-30 percent more cars than on a “normal” Power Big Meet year. We have to accept this and decided to move to the hugh (2-3 times the size of the event location in Västerås) Lidköping/Hovby Airfield. Lidköping is much smaller than Västerås but within a 30 minute drive theres 5 more cities: Skara, Vänersborg, Mariestad, Falköping and Skövde.
Please look up the Lidköping area on google maps! This region is a major tourist area with many hotells/B&B:s/campgrounds etc. We will update with a complete list in the very near future! The Lidköping area holds the most classic american cars in the world per square km! Even a local swap meet can draw over 1000 cars! We sure hope you will join us in the 2017 celebrations July 6-8!!!
