New garage event set to showcase UK aftermarket’s response to vehicle electrification

The UK’s first ever independent garage event dedicated to electric vehicle skills, equipment and technology, EV Ready is set to be held at Brighton Racecourse on January 25, 2023.

Headline sponsored by GSF Car Parts and hosted by Garage Wire, EV Ready is bringing the UK aftermarket’s EV expertise together under one roof for the benefit of independent garage owners and technicians.

Garage Wire editor, Mike Ruff said: “With almost every vehicle manufacturer now offering an EV line-up, it’s a car parc that’s fast growing and one that independent workshops should be considering what it will mean for them.

“There’s no doubt that it’s a seismic shift we’re seeing, so we’ll have renowned industry experts here to discuss EV trends, technology and the business scope for workshops.

“We’ll also be showcasing the very latest tools and services that garages need to service and repair the growing number of EVs on our roads.”

Around 40 aftermarket exhibitors will highlight the EV-related parts, equipment and training available to independents, while a live EV discussion panel incorporating leading industry names will offer expertise and guidance for those curious about what opportunities EVs can bring for them.

“That’s why we’re really excited to be the headline sponsor of EV Ready and why we’ll be encouraging our garage customers to take the opportunity to come along and take a look at what’s happening to our industry.”
