The Auto Trade EXPO takes place again later this year at the Citywest Exhibition Centre on Saturday and Sunday, 22nd. and 23rd. of October.
The event which was a phenomenal success in its inaugural year, will showcase all aspects of the Irish auto aftermarket in a major ‘trade only’ event again this year.
This year’s Auto Trade EXPO will again prove a great experience for mechanics, technicians and apprentices from independent garages and main dealerships alike. 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 wider auto aftermarket from all over Ireland.
Most trade stands will be interactive with real demos. All visitors will be able to touch and feel the parts, tools and equipment and interact with those doing the demonstrations, to learn about new products, tools, equipment, and methods – as well as having your questions answered.
After several years of research into trade exhibitions, and training events, Automotive Publications decided on a model that offers exhibitors the direct contact they require with the maximum numbers of buyers, technicians, mechanics, apprentices, as well as managers/ owners of auto businesses.
The choice of venue and timing of the Auto Trade EXPO allows exhibitors the time and space to demonstrate their products, tools,
equipment and services. It also highlights the merits of respective brands to the professional aftermarket attendees. This proven formula and your efforts will deliver more sales throughout Ireland for you and/or your intermediaries.
In addition to interactivity and demonstrations on the exhibitor’s stands, we will also offer attendees a multi dimensional experience in areas of diagnostics, hands on demonstrations, and taster training courses from the top Irish and UK-based trainers in our centrally located Tech Talk Zone within the arena.
In return, exhibitor’s existing and potential customers 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 a better 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.
We will again have the very successful ‘Innovation Awards’ and also ‘Best Stand Awards’ presented at the Auto Trade EXPO.
