  • “We attended Automechanika Birmingham for two full days in 2016 and it was a huge success! We managed to see lots of suppliers and listened into a couple of the seminars which were really interesting. We’ll be back this year and can’t wait to see how much bigger the event will be. It is the perfect opportunity for us to network with the industry, discover new companies, and most importantly, source new products for us to supply to our customers.”
    Louisa Mitchell, Company Director, Road & Rally Automotive
  • “ I’m planning my trip to Automechanika Birmingham 2017 to meet with our existing suppliers and hopefully discover some more! Although, I’m looking for new product launches specifically in the accessories category, I’m also interested in learning about the latest automotive technologies, networking and seeing what the industry’s future looks like. There isn’t another event which provides this on such a big scale so it’s a great opportunity to do it all under one roof!”  
    Edwin Charles, Product Manager, The AA
  • “As a busy independent garage, investing the time to attend events can be tricky but taking a couple of days out of my workshop to attend Automechanika Birmingham is a must! I had a great show at the launch of 2016, I met with many suppliers, saw a couple of the seminars and walked away from the event with some new ideas and future technology. I’ll be attending all three of the days for this year and will bring a different member of staff each day so that they can experience how great the event is. I’m particularly excited about the new Workshop Training Zone and seeing some experts show live demonstrations for garages.”
    Simon Taylor, Director of Main Street Garage
