THE COMMERCIAL Vehicle Show has launched Workshop 2008 for anyone involved in the service or repair of vehicles - whatever their size.

From next year, the annual industry exhibition will feature a dedicated zone where visitors from across the country can see the latest equipment, tools and parts to help their businesses.

Workshop 2008 will take place from a dedicated hall at the heart of the The Commercial Vehicle Show and caters for people involved with passenger cars as well as commercial vehicles.

Bob Sockl, responsible for show sales and marketing, says exhibitors will be able to welcome visitors far more efficiently, thanks to the creation of Workshop 2008. He said technicians and garage managers visiting the show will also be able to get more out of a day away from the workshop thanks to the initiative.

"Visitors want to be able see more companies in a more organised manner, and this year, have strongly welcomed the zoning of sector related products and services.

"Workshop 2008 will provide the very best sales platform for garage equipment and diagnostic kit, replacement parts, body shop equipment, panels, paint and consumables and workshop management systems. In short, anything needed to service and repair vehicles, whatever their size."
