Tickets on sale for inaugural EV Ready event

Tickets have gone on sale for the UK’s first ever independent garage event dedicated to electric vehicle skills, equipment and technology – EV Ready – which is set to be held at Brighton Racecourse on 25 January.

Headline sponsored by GSF Car Parts and hosted by Garage Wire, EV Ready is bringing the UK aftermarket’s EV expertise together under one roof for the benefit of independent garage owners and technicians.

Around 40 aftermarket exhibitors will highlight the EV-related parts, equipment and training available to independents, including the likes of the Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Repair Alliance (HEVRA), ZAP ME, Our Virtual Academy, Autotech Training, Pico Technology, Schaeffler and Delphi.

A live EV discussion panel is set to be just one of the evening’s highlights and promises to offer expert advice and guidance to those curious about what opportunities EVs can bring to independent garages.

EV Ready speaker Tom Denton said: “We are used to change, for example carburation to fuel injection, basic braking to ABS and computerisation of, well, everything. However, the switch from internal combustion engines (ICE) to a zero emission electric vehicles (EV) future is, I think, the most rapid period of change out industry has ever experienced.”

Garage Wire Editor, Mike Ruff said: “We’ve already sold more than 100 tickets within hours of the box office opening, so we’re really excited to host this much-needed event for independent garages. Whether you’re already starting to think about EVs, or are yet to be convinced of the opportunities, come along and find out what’s happening in your industry.”
