The UK’s leading exhibition for the automotive aftermarket and vehicle production sector attracted independent garages from across the country earlier this month.
More than 500 exhibitors were in attendance at Automechanika Birmingham 2018, with the event’s dedicated ‘garage quarter’, which hosted tool and garage equipment suppliers, marking the main attraction for workshops.
Other new features at this year’s exhibition included extended opening hours, a specialist demo ‘workshop training hub’, ‘garage social’ and ‘business services village’.
A comprehensive free seminar programme covering all of the key industry issues of the moment also proved popular.
The Garage of the Year competition saw winners Hillclimb Garage, with the High Wycombe-based workshop, pick up the £1000 prize.
Hillclimb was up against five other finalists, all of whom had been chosen from 38 shortlisted contenders across six categories and announced at a special evening dinner held in the Director’s Lounge, Aston Villa Football Club on Tuesday 5 June.
