Auto Trade Expo – The future in the aftermarket

The inaugural Auto Trade Expo takes place later this year at the Citywest Conference Centre on Saturday, and Sunday, November 8th. and 9th.

ateThe new Auto Trade Expo will be the first of its kind ever held in Ireland. It will showcase all aspects of the Irish auto aftermarket in a major trade only event.

It will prove a Mecca for mechanics; technicians; refinishers and apprentices from independent garages and main dealerships. It will also be a must attend event for workshop, bodyshop, aftersales managers, parts managers, and owners and managers of garages, bodyshops, transport workshops, 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 – to have your questions answered. All vehicle aftermarket sectors including motorbikes, passenger cars, light commercials, heavy commercials, trailers and buses will be catered for in the Auto Trade Expo.

After several years of research in to trade exhibitions, we 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 the time and space to demonstrate their products, tools, equipment and services and highlight the merits of respective brands to the professional aftermarket attendees. The idea is that this effort will deliver more sales for you and/or your intermediaries.

In addition to interactivity and demonstrations on the trade stands, we will also offer attendees a multi dimensional experience in areas of diagnostics, hands on demonstrations, taster training courses, business development and custom handling seminars, and much more.

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 required each day in their workshops. They will come away 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.

In addition to we will have more details about the technical workshops etc. in the next issue of the Auto Trade Journal and on-line at all our portals including: AutoTrade,ie;;;; and

The Auto Trade Expo is certainly one major event that exhibitors and everyone in the auto trade aftermarket should not miss.
