Organised by the publishers of the Auto Trade Journal, the Auto Trade Expo will prove a Mecca for mechanics; technicians; and apprentices from independent garages and main dealerships. It will also be a must attend event for workshop and / or aftersales managers, parts managers, and owners and managers of garages, transport workshops, bodyshops, tyre centres, motor factors, and everyone involved in the auto aftermarket.
Trade stands will be interactive with real demonstrations. Touch and feel the parts, tools and equipment and interact with those doing the demonstrations, to learn about new products, tools, equipment, and methods and have your questions answered.
All vehicle aftermarket sectors including passenger cars, light commercials, heavy commercials, trailers and buses will be catered for in the Auto Trade Expo.
After several years of research into trade exhibitions, Automotive Publications decided on a model that will offer exhibitors the direct contact they require with the maximum numbers of buyers, technicians, mechanics, apprentices, managers and owners.
This allows exhibitors the time and space to demonstrate products, tools, equipment and services and highlight the merits of respective brands to professional aftermarket attendees.
In addition to interactivity and demonstrations on the trade stands, the Auto Trade Expo will also offer attendees a multi dimensional experience in areas of diagnostics, hands on demonstrations, taster training courses, business development and much more.
Attendees will come away from an impressive event having learned a great deal in both theory and practice about many aspects of what they require each day in their workshops.
They will leave with an understanding of the future of the auto aftermarket business and the best products, tools, equipment and services they need to get a quality job done in an efficient and profitable manner.
Saturday: 10.30am to 7.00pm
Sunday: 11.00am to 5.00pm
