All vehicle aftermarket sectors including motorbikes, passenger cars, light commercials, heavy commercials, trailers and buses will be catered for in the Auto Trade Expo.

After several years of research into trade exhibitions, Automotive Publications decided on a model that will offer exhibitors the direct contact they require with the maximum numbers of buyers, technicians, mechanics, apprentices, managers and owners.

This allows the time and space to demonstrate their products, tools, equipment and services and highlight the merits of respective brands to the professional aftermarket attendees.

In addition to interactivity and demonstrations on the trade stands, the Auto Trade Expo will also offer attendees a multi dimensional experience in areas of diagnostics, hands on demonstrations, taster training courses, business development and customer handling seminars, and much more.
