Success at the 10th Autocare Trade Show and Conference

GROUPAUTO’s annual trade show held in April 2015 had FPS making a strong impression with its product portfolio, services and technological advancements.

Autocare concluded its 10th Annual Trade Show and Conference in Milton Keynes on 17th April 2015. The show was GROUPAUTO’s biggest till date; spread across a 2,500 square metre Trade Hall and attended by a record 750 delegates. The Trade Show saw 85 GA-approved supplier exhibitors interact with garage owners and staff, displaying the opportunities afforded by the advance of automotive technology.

Key approved suppliers from FPS included Cambiare vehicle electronics, Reisse filtration and Fahren and each made its presence felt at the show. The suppliers had their own display stands showcasing the very best of new products and services to the independent aftermarket and received a lot of interest as well as positive feedback from the attendees.

The show was followed by the Autocare annual conference and awards, where Jim Mazza, Alliance Automotive MD for UK Trade Groups, opened the ceremony with a video showing FPS’ first drone delivery in the UK involving GA member Brakeline.

With a focus on advancing technology and the opportunities it delivers to the aftermarket, the show and conference ended on a positive note for suppliers, distributors and GA-members alike.
