Motor factors that bring their garage guests to Automechanika Birmingham 2019 are to benefit from an exclusive VIP area, enjoy fast track access into the event and support with their travel arrangements.
All motor factors have to do is simply invite, register and bring five or more garage customers to the event to receive free parking and free breakfast too.
Automechanika’s organisers say that The Hosted Garage programme is a great opportunity for motor factors to introduce garages and technicians to their supplier base.
Big UK Garage Event
Garages that take up the offer of attending with their motor factor will also visit The Big UK Garage Event, where they will access hundreds of suppliers and brands from across the industry covering areas such as accessories, components, tools and garage equipment.
There will also be CPD accredited training taking place and demos from the industry’s top speakers including Frank Massey, Andy Crook and James Dillon, the Training & Skills Village and the returning Workshop Training Hub.
Exhibitors will also be providing a raft of exclusive show offers and giveaways for garages at this year’s event.
Group factor manager at Midwest Motor Factors Craig McCracken, said: “This is a fantastic idea and really ties in everybody in the automotive industry.
“Much of the event’s content is geared towards independent garages and it’s a fantastic opportunity for us as their local motor factor to bring them to an event that will ultimately benefit their business.
TAutosupplies managing director, David Clarke said: “Each year we bring garages to the event and this year we’ve been inundated with requests to join our team at the event.
“As a motor factor, we have a responsibility to support our suppliers exhibiting at the event and bring garages to them.
“Such dialogue and feedback helps all in the supply chain and so we’re delighted to be bringing more garages than ever before to Automechanika Birmingham as part of the Hosted Garage Programme.”
There is still time for motor factors to sign up to the Hosted Garage Programme, by emailing [email protected].
