Strong industry advocacy

The event was excellent, and very interactive. It’s important to familiarise ourselves with the latest technology to assist a modern, busy bodyshop. We travelled a long way and I very much enjoyed the talks and seminars and to see our sector represented so well. Seeing it so busy proves how much we need this event

I see such a value in coming to the UK Garage and Bodyshop Event. It’s great to meet people face-to-face. I just love the conversations that I’m having – it was a really enjoyable day!


It was really, really busy and the first day was amazing. It’s probably one of the best events we've done in a long, long time. The second day was equally as good. Overall, it was really good, and we really enjoyed it. I’m glad we came and hope it keeps going as well as this for next few years.


We had a fantastic few days at the UK Garage and Bodyshop event, and experienced much higher numbers than I think anyone even expected! It was great to be back in front of our customers, this event is now very much a mainstay of our industry and it’s fantastic.


It has been a jam-packed two days of training, manufacturers, and stands. There have been competition giveaways and it has been an extraordinary event. It’s really important for any garage owner to attend, as there’s so much on offer. Get your CPD nailed and come again for the next one!.

We met many garage owners who are users of our products but were not direct customers of ours. They were our customers’ customers. The feedback we drew from them was nothing short of terrific. We were able to answer their questions, but also able to introduce them to solutions that were not yet on their radar, but that we knew could be put to good use around their workshops.
