The Overland Event has developed a reputation for its relaxed vibe, fun features and inspiring presentations. Here’s a taste of what people have said about previous years.


Just make sure you do it again next year.

- Ted Simon

I hereby declare The Overland Event a resounding success!

Michael Bravo

Simply the best event in Europe for those who travel on motorcycles.

- Derek Mansfield

Superb achievement!

- Austin Vince

Thank you Paddy for all your hard work! 2018 was my third Event and felt the best so far! The atmosphere was fantastic, the food was great, met some old friends and made some new ones. Listened to some amazing tales and rekindled thoughts of adventure. The idea of reusable beer glasses and bring your own mug should be rolled out across the country and I was so pleased to read of the lack of rubbish on completion! Looking forward to next year!

- Tony Turpin

It’s a great place to meet awesome people.

Take a bow, it was a bloody good weekend! We look forward to next year’s event, make sure you let us know once you have a date please. - Cliff Batley, Adventure Bike Shop

Thanks for making our [engagement] weekend even more special! Lorna and I were really impressed with the show and would love to get further involved with the mag and events too. Stay in touch! - Tom Broadway

Thanks guys, it was a great weekend; probably the best one I’ve been to. You could tell that you had put a great deal of effort in to the whole event. So much to see, do and great people to talk to and lots of goodies to spend my money on!! We’ve been talking about it ever since we left, and hoping there will be another one next year; if not sooner.

Fab event, great speakers, great venue, lovely laid back feel, and amazing beer. Oh, and somehow they managed to book perfect weather!
