The Auto Trade EXPO is an exhibitor sell-out, with thousands of attendees from all over Ireland are expected this weekend.

For those travelling from around the country, access to Dublin on Saturdays and Sundays is very straight-forward and the RDS offers lots of car parking.

The Auto Trade EXPO will also prove a great experience for mechanics, technicians and apprentices from independent garages, main dealerships and heavy commercial workshops alike. The largest selection of hand tools, the very latest diagnostics, plus so much more will be on display and demonstrated.

Many of the 200+ trade stands will have live demos.

With the addition of the CV Workshop EXPO running alongside, practically all vehicle aftermarket sectors are covered this year. In addition to passenger cars, all vehicle aftermarket sectors including large vans, heavy commercials, trailers and buses will be catered for at the CV Workshop EXPO (

There will be more exhibitors than ever before covering truck related aftermarket products, services, tools and equipment next weekend. Many other stands dealing with any CV aftermarket sectors will be signified by ‘Truck Compliance’ signage at their stands throughout the EXPO.

The choice of venue and timing of the Auto Trade EXPO allows attendees the time and space to demonstrate their products, tools, equipment and services. It also highlights the merits of the respective brands to the professional Irish aftermarket.

In addition to interactivity and demonstrations on the exhibitor’s stands, attendees will experience a multi dimensional in diagnostics, hands on demonstrations, and training talks from the top Irish and UK-based trainers in three different Tech Talk Zones within the EXPO.

The Auto Trade EXPO this weekend is certainly one major event that everyone involved in the auto trade aftermarket on the island of Ireland should attend.

Please note, the Auto Trade EXPO 2022 remains ‘Trade Only’. For work environment and health and safety reasons, this event is for ‘Over-16s Only’ (with 16 to 18 year-olds accompanied at entry).
