Automechanika to tackle major issues affecting aftermarket

Published:  23 February, 2018

 Automechanika Birmingham 2018 is set tackle all the major issues affecting businesses in the automotive aftermarket, according to event director Simon Albert.

With an exhibitor base set to be the most proactive yet, visitors will also benefit from the event’s seminar programme with issues such as GDPR and MOT changes set to dominate.

Simon Albert commented: “With changes affecting the running of garages due to come into place just weeks before the event, Automechanika Birmingham is perfectly positioned to provide much needed clarity on issues affecting the trade.”

This year, the show will also have a dedicated ‘Garage Quarter’ for the growing number of garages attending the event and an enhanced programme of live events featuring live technical demonstrations, free training and keynote speakers.

Simon added: “Automechanika Birmingham 2018 is an event for every company in the aftermarket to come together, share ideas and express opinions on how to move business forward. With so much happening in the trade, the event has become a ‘must attend’ for automotive personnel looking to develop their business now and in the future.”

This year’s event at the NEC Birmingham runs from 5-7 June 2018. The show will include vehicle production exhibitors in Hall 6, aftermarket suppliers in Hall 20 and a dedicated Garage Quarter in Hall 19.
