New garage trade show coming soon

A new trade show for the garage trade takes place in the UK next month, Garage Expo takes place at the Telford International Centre on Thursday and Friday September, 19-20 and has been described by the organisers as the first dedicated UK trade show for the garage sector.

With the Telford International Centre located centrally in the West Midlands and offering free car parking, it is the ideal venue for Garage Expo. The Centre also has two international hotels on site and three more within walking distance.

Garage Expo will be running alongside the established Professional Recovery Tow Show, a specialist show for vehicle recovery operators. These operators all have garage facilities and are being encouraged by their work providers such as the AA, RAC and Green Flag to repair cars instead of transporting them many hundreds of miles.

There are over 4,000 vehicle recovery operators in the UK and they all have requirements for updating equipment and buying spares. Many of them require diagnostic equipment and spares on their mobile trucks.

Garage Expo is being launched to offer the independent garage owners a national show in a centrally located arena. The Telford International Centre offers state-of-the-art facilities with free car parking, situated at the end of the M54 in the West Midlands.
