Prof Michael Cox to speak at bodyshop networking event

There is just one week to go until the bodyshop magazine #UKGBE2022 networking party gets under way (6:00pm, Tuesday, 7 June) and the UK collision repair industry is buzzing for another chance to get together in person with colleagues, customers and suppliers.

Many of the big bodyshop groups will be attending, together with distributors, paint and spray gun manufacturers, tech companies, training providers and individual repairers and technicians.

So don’t miss out, get your tickets today.

The #bodyshopmag party will take place at the exclusive Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel and Country Club, and will include a mouth-watering BBQ dinner and plenty of face-to-face networking time.

It will also feature a fascinating talk by internationally acclaimed speaker Professor Michael Cox – founding director of LSE IDEAS and emeritus professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science – who will put his own humorous spin on the post-pandemic economy, how this is impacting the collision repair sector, what recovery signs are evident, and what the future holds for us all.

The #bodyshopBBQ networking event next Tuesday (7 June) will officially kick off the inaugural UK Garage and Bodyshop Event presented by Automechanika Birmingham, which takes place at The NEC over the following two days (8-9 June).

Every ticket purchased to attend the bodyshop magazine networking party will receive an automatic free upgrade to VIP status for both days of the #UKGBE2022. Our VIP guests will get free parking at the NEC, free breakfast vouchers before 10:00am, and access to the Business Services Zone and Lounge for meetings on-event.
