Bodyshop unveils COLLISION INTELLIGENCE as theme for Expo

Bodyshop Magazine is delighted to announce that this year’s highly anticipated Bodyshop Expo will be themed “COLLISION INTELLIGENCE”.

Taking place on Thursday, 19th September at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole as part of the Bodyshop Awards 2024, the daytime COLLISION INTELLIGENCE Expo 2024 will build on the success of last year’s “Bodyshop of the Future” showcase.

In addition to featuring more exhibitor stands and more product and equipment demos throughout the day (09:00-15:00), the breakout stage this September will deliver multiple sessions focused on better bodyshop business planning, ADAS opportunities for independent repairers, solutions to the labour and skills shortages, advanced repair guidance, outcomes of the growth of bodyshop groups, and much more.

These sessions will also get under the skin of several new-to-market electric cars packed with ADAS, and will offer insights into state-of-the-art repairs.


As Bodyshop unveils COLLISION INTELLIGENCE as the theme for the Expo 2024, the magazine’s editor, Simon Wait, said:

“It’s great to be returning to the Hilton at the NEC, where we’ll have everything under one roof so our guests can network and experience the Expo and seminar programme during the day, then take the lift up to their hotel rooms to prepare for the 30 Under 30 and Bodyshop Awards gala dinner celebrations.

“Planning for our big day out is already well under way, and this year we’ll have a few more surprises in store for our industry colleagues, including more learning opportunities during the COLLISION INTELLIGENCE Expo.”

The Bodyshop Expo is free to attend for all bodyshop employees, SMART repairers and any accident repair sector apprentice, while there is a nominal fee for those coming from the wider supply chain. All you have to do is sign up by visiting the Bodyshop Awards & Expo ticketing page, where you can also buy your tickets to attend the Bodyshop Awards 2024 and 30 Under 30: Rising Stars celebration dinner.

More agenda details about specific Bodyshop Expo exhibitor demos and other learning opportunities will be revealed soon.
