The British Motor Show and Automotive Career Expo is taking place in Farnborough International Exhibition Centre from 18-21 August.

Now partnered by The School of Thought, the Automotive Career Expo aims to help the sector address the skills shortage and attract more young talent to the industry. It will showcase the technology within repair, the benefits of working in the sector and the progressive career paths available.

The Expo will feature career sessions in the Tech Theatre every day, with a Tech Hall where visitors can experience the latest tooling and equipment now in the industry, and over 50 live stage sessions.

Meanwhile, current and former apprentices will be on hand to discuss their experiences first hand, with keynote addresses from a number of leading players in the automotive, entertainment and motorsport industries.

More than 70,000 people are expected to visit over the course of four days.
