Automechanika to support BEN

The inaugural Automechanika Birmingham exhibition, to be held at the NEC, will be supporting BEN, the charity dedicated to supporting the UK automotive industry.

The event organisers will provide BEN with stand space, free of charge, and will support the organisation’s fundraising and awareness-building efforts with additional related facilities throughout the show.

BEN has a long history of participating in leading automotive consumer and trade exhibitions and the organisation is delighted to become involved in an exhibition which has attracted 550 UK and international exhibitors.

BEN chief executive, David Main said, ‘We are so very pleased to have been able to establish a relationship with a UK automotive trade event that is proving to be so popular both in terms of exhibitors and the potentially visitors. The work of BEN never stops and we constantly look for opportunities to raise funds so we can support more people within the automotive business who are facing difficult challenges, helping them to get back on track.’

‘We are delighted to offer help to BEN,’ said event director, Simon Albert. ‘We are very aware of the huge amount or work and care that BEN delivers to the many individuals in the automotive industry in its widest sense. We will work closely with BEN to raise as much money as we can.’
