Daily Driven Inc. had their first indoor show on August 5th 2017 at the Melbourne FL Auditorium. This is a first that I can remember at the Melbourne Auditorium. Back in the day we used to have car audio shows there, but I don’t ever remember having an indoor showcase of cars. This was great for the car scene community in Brevard and the Space Coast. Featuring many of the local cars and trucks, but also bringing in show cars from surrounding counties.
Like usual with indoor shows, there were some hiccups with loading the cars inside. There were issues with vendors that did not show up on time, and general confusion, but all in all I believe it was handled as best as it could be. I think the cars could have been staged better and more planned out, but live and learn. Seeing that this was Daily Driven Inc.’s first indoor show I think they did well and will improve for next time.
Most of the cars were inside of the building, but there was an outdoor section of cars as well. Unfortunately, being the beginning of August in Florida, the heat was really unbearable. Most attendees that brought their car as well as general attendees couldn’t take it outside for very long. Some cars left early and most show goers stayed inside. I tried to get outside and get pics of everything I could, but I literally could only take it outside 10 minutes at a time.
Overall, I really enjoyed myself at the show. The music was good, the family was good, and the cars were good. I’m really appreciative to have Daily Driven Inc. bring an indoor show to Brevard and allow me to be a part of it and help however I could. They will only learn from this experience and continue to bring quality car events to the Space Coast.
