I think you will prefer to see flares than a big patch of shadow in the middle right?

A common misunderstanding... the lens hood can be used indoors to prevent stray light hitting your lens at an odd angle (quite possible as in a car exhibition you'd have multiple spot lights all over and not to mention flashes going off here and there) and also as some protection against brushing the front element of your lens against a sweaty body part in a crowded environment and gaining an oily smudge........ You should try some events and see the benefits of a hood....
