Exhibitor testimonials

ZF Aftermarket

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 very much a mainstay of our industry and it’s fantastic to have it.

It's been really good. The way it’s organised has been brilliant. We’ve had a great experience with the organisers and the team sorting out the whole event has been brilliant. We’ve been able to get in and get our stand looking sharp in relatively no time at all really – it’s been quick and easy and painless. It’s been really good.

It was good to be there for the UK Garage & Bodyshop event. It was good to get back out in the mix with everyone to network and show off our new equipment. It's been a fantastic show. 


Silco Paints

The UK Garage and Bodyshop Event really enabled us to highlight the benefits of Silco products, listen to whats happening in the industry, meet new customers and prospective Silco sub-stockists plus much more.

It's been incredible to have so many face-to-face conversations and be able to demonstrate what we can do in person.



The services and training we provide to our networks are designed to equip garage businesses for the future. This event is the perfect platform to showcase that, while engaging face-to-face directly, and understanding business needs at the coal face so we can continue to meet market demand.

The event was excellent, and very interactive. It’s important to familiarise ourselves with the latest technology to assist a modern, busy bodyshop.

Car body accident repair

With arguably the biggest shift for the UK aftermarket happening here and now with the presence of ADAS and hybrid/EV technology, increased cybersecurity and access to in-vehicle data, and this event for garages and bodyshops is essential to keeping the industry connected and up to date.


The UK Garage and Bodyshop Event is a must for my diary as a workshop owner. Digital resources have helped enormously during lockdown, but I am looking forward to experiencing first hand the training and products that are going to drive my business forward.
