In the first opportunity since GROUPAUTO and United Aftermarket Network (UAN) trading groups joined forces in March, around 1,000 delegates registered for the two day event in Liverpool.
Members of each trading group attended a conference session relevant to their specific groups to hear specific detail of the performance of their groups and of new initiatives launched to support them and help them grow their own businesses.
The following day saw the trade show open with 130 exhibiting suppliers promoting their businesses to the membership.
Jim Mazza the Managing Director of UK Trading Groups said: “I am delighted that in the distribution world of uncertainty and consolidation we were once again able to demonstrate our size, stability and professionalism.
“I am extremely grateful to all our suppliers for their ongoing support and to the members of both GROUPAUTO and UAN for their commitment.”
Phil Dodd, Managing Director of UAN, said: “This was further reminder to members, suppliers and employees of both groups of the scale of the organisation that is working on their behalf and I fail to see how anyone attending could be anything less than impressed.”
Arrangements are already with an AutoCare garage network conference and trade show planned for Milton Keynes in April 2016, a Spring Event in Spain in May 2016 and a return to Merseyside in October 2016 for the Trading Group Conference and Trade Show.
