Dates announced for next year's Auto Trade EXPO 2024 in Dublin

Last October (2022), for first time since 2018 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Auto Trade EXPO took place at the great new venue in Simmonscourt at the RDS in Dublin. Held along-side the new and equally successful CV Workshop EXPO, the RDS was packed with trade visitors over the two days.

All the exhibitors were pleasantly surprised at how busy it was last October, and a lot of business was done at the EXPO and since then due to contacts made there.

Now the dates for the 2024 Auto Trade EXPO have just been announced. It will take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 12-13, next year, at the same venue in the RDS in Dublin. It promises to be bigger and with even more trade attendees, as word has spread of the positive experience from last October at the new venue. Last October was a record attendance in the near ten years since the first Auto trade EXPO at Citywest.

Already, a line-up of exhibitors from last year along with some that didn’t make it last October have expressed interest. Space will be offered on general release from early next month.

The 2024 CV Workshop EXPO will again take place alongside the established Auto Trade EXPO in the RDS in Dublin over what will be another very busy October weekend. The RDS was a new venue for the EXPO in 2022, and it proved a success for visitors and exhibitors alike. For that reason, the same prestigious exhibition venue in Dublin will again host both the Auto Trade EXPO and CV Workshop EXPO side by side.

Last year, there were over 200 international and national exhibitors, and in excess of 9,000 trade visitors attended over the two-days. Those figures will confidently be exceeded in October 2024. Admission was free to all auto trade, transport, auto and commercial vehicle aftermarket and associate visitors last year and that will be the case again in October, 2024.

The wide-reaching advertising and promotional campaigns associated with the EXPOs reached every corner of the country (from Coleraine to Waterford, Belfast to Bantry, and Clifden to Dublin) the large attendance and quality of attendees exceeded expectations, much to the satisfaction of all exhibitors and he organisers.
