AUTO TRADE EXPO 2022 heading for early sell-out

Exhibitor space for the Auto Trade EXPO is heading for a sell-out well in advance of opening next May 7-8.

The Auto Trade EXPO 2022 will again prove a great experience for mechanics, technicians and apprentices from independent garages and main dealerships alike, when it takes place at Citywest Exhibition Centre.

The previous Auto Trade EXPO, which attracted over 8,000 visitors, was the largest automotive aftermarket exhibition ever in Ireland, with more than 190 stands representing over 900 brands.

Next year’s edition will be the biggest auto aftermarket trade event ever held in Ireland, with over 90 per cent of the stands already sold.

The Auto Trade EXPO 2022 will be the place to go for bodyshops, tyre centres, motor factors, and everyone in the auto aftermarket supply- chain and end users of parts, services, tools and equipment etc.

Visitors will also be treated to over 20 free technical training talks from the best auto technical experts from across Ireland and the UK.

Some of the major bodyshop brands that will be in attendance at next year’s show include: Autopaint Supplies, Abcon Industrial Products Ltd., Shop Bodyshop Direct, Blackhawk Collision Repair UK, Mirka (UK) Ltd, Bodyshop Solutions, Solera, and Copart.

Other leading workshop tools and equipment suppliers that will exhibit include: P.J. Fallon & Son, Irish Garage Equipment, TopPart, Pitzone Ltd, All Tools Direct, Equipco Ireland Ltd, Pro–Align Ltd, Sykes Pickavant Ltd and much more.

The 2022 event is shaping up to be a runaway success, and for the first time the CV Workshop EXPO will also take place alongside the Auto Trade EXPO.

The inaugural CV Workshop EXPO will showcase all aspects of the commercial vehicle (CV) aftermarket in a major trade only event.

Thousands of truck and bus owners, managers and those responsible for parts procurement in CV workshops will attend the first ever staging of CV Workshop EXPO. International aftermarket parts manufacturers will exhibit alongside national distributors of parts, services, tools, and equipment.
