DD2017 Home page for registration


Registration is underway for the globally unique DD2017 event by thewesterngroup for PR colleagues in the automotive industry.


Even before the new on-line registration website was up and running we were having requests from the industry to allocate  people and cars and now the site is live it should be easier.

Log-in details for DD2017 have been sent to each PR director and press fleet manager on the SMMT list and once the webpage is opened you can move to the booking pages using the supplied log-in details.

Check your email folders for the details you were sent and fill in the booking pages as appropriate. If you have a problem please contact us

We have had a good response from manufacturers adding some classic cars from their fleets for DD2017 and also keen interest in bringing along the latest vans in a new element for the event as it continues to evolve in its third decade.

On thewesterngroup side we also hope to have a new member attending to show the industry. 

We look forward to seeing you next month.


Best wishes,

The Chairman
