Entries now open

Automechanika Birmingham 2017 will introduce a Garage of the Year competition, with a £1,000 first prize.

Workshops can enter by either submitting 150 words or sending a one minute video clip explaining why they should be Garage of the Year. Entries should include information about improvements to their garage service such as: new equipment, special customer promotions, and examples of excellent customer service. Garages could also mention ways they have increased profit, staff training or incentives and improvements to the building or facilities.

Simon Albert, event director, said, ‘Workshop owners and technicians are a key visitor group for us to welcome to Automechanika Birmingham 2017 so we have introduced a bigger programme for them. It is the place to look for new garage equipment and tools at special show prices, get free training and advice while keeping up to date with the industry’s changes in MOT and new technologies. The Garage of the Year competition aims to recognise and reward the best.’

The competition is being launched in partnership with Garage Wire. Automechanika Birmingham takes place from 6-8 June.
