Welcome to the UK Garage & Bodyshop Event

Join us at the show 8-9 June 2022, NEC Birmingham

Exhibitor Marketing

As part of our efforts to ensure that you have a successful exhibition experience, we offer a number of helpful promotional marketing tools for all exhibitors. You can complete your exhibitor listing on the event website by logging into your Media Package Manager


Our content marketing platform auto:resource is the perfect tool to compliment your presence at the show. Dedicated to servicing the UK aftermarket, our essential resources website hosts product, training, promotions, business advice and insights plus industry news in one central location.

All exhibitors get a free content hub on auto:resource, and two resources. Make sure you use these to extend your reach in the run-up to the show. Ensure the profile is complete, with your logo, your company descriptions and all your social links so customers can find out all about you.

Send your content to Nicola Sandham to be uploaded onto auto:resource where it will be shared across social media and included in our weekly bulletin to an audience of 24,000.

Exhibitor Search

Make sure you have completed your profile on the Exhibitor Search. This is often the first impression a visitor will get, so make sure it's complete with your logo, company description, product images and product groups.
