Interest builds for TechFest

More than 1,500 people have now signed up for the TechFest Garage Technology Festival, which is taking place at Wembley on 13 June.

Led by GSF Car Parts, the free event is supported by more than 50 industry suppliers who will deliver hands-on product training and live demonstrations of the latest innovations within the sector.

The event will also feature a series of TechTalks from seven industry leaders and suppliers considering issues such as the future of fuelling, new battery technology and ADAS.

Meanwhile, GSF will also give away £50 worth of Trade Club points to every attending repairer.

TechFest is being introduced after a period of rapid growth for the parts distributor, which now has more than 185 branches and 3,000 team members across the country. It has also recently opened a new national distribution centre in Wolverhampton to support parts supply.

James Onions, GSF Car Parts marketing and communications director, said:

“With registered numbers now surging past 1,500 TechFest is really generating some excitement out there in our network. Our message to garages is to not miss the opportunity to get registered and come along, we promise TechFest will be well worth the time and effort.”
