The major Australian automotive aftermarket industry event of the year, Autocare 2018, will welcome members of the automotive trade from Sydney, regional New South Wales and across the country to take part and learn more about the bright future ahead for their businesses.
Presented by Platinum sponsor Repco and Diamond Sponsor I-CAR, Autocare 2018 will be held at the Sydney International Convention Centre on May 4 and 5.
Autocare 2018 offers mechanical repairers, collision repairers and their automotive parts supply chain colleagues the opportunity to gain the latest information, advice and education to help guide their businesses toward a highly successful and profitable future.
Members of the automotive trade are welcome to register to attend both days of Autocare 2018 for free.
More than 100 of Australia’s top automotive aftermarket parts manufacturers and industry service providers will provide Autocare 2018 visitors with their products and services on display along with providing practical demonstrations of modern repair technology and processes designed to make Australian aftermarket businesses more efficient, productive and sustainable.
Autocare 2018 will feature the Autodata Training Stage, which will provide regular and detailed technical presentations throughout this two-day education-led industry event. The presentations will unveil and discuss the latest innovations in mechanical and collision repair technology.
Automotive trade visitors to Autocare 2018 also will enjoy a feature car display and experience the latest in refinishing technology courtesy of the Lowbake Australia portable spray booth, which will be located at the spacious outdoor deck of the new Sydney International Convention Centre.
The importance of this Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) organized event cannot be understated, said AAAA Executive Director Stuart Charity.
“Education has never played a more important role in the future of Australia’s independent repairers and service providers,” said Charity. “The disruption caused by rapid developments in repair and servicing diagnostics, procedures and component technologies, now places enormous importance on the need to be accurately and regularly informed to ensure your business sustainability and long-term growth. This is what Autocare 2018 is all about.”
For those who are seeking to gain the most knowledge and industry education from Autocare 2018, this national convention includes three targeted information streams relating to the Supply Chain, Mechanical Repair and Collision Repair sectors of the industry. Each of these Autocare 2018 Convention information streams feature some of the most experienced corporate and automotive industry identities from Australia and around the world. Each will deliver detailed presentations designed to assist attendees in guiding their businesses toward continued and increased success in the future.
Autocare 2018 convention participants will hear directly from Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) Chairman Rod Sims, who will outline the ACCC’s findings and recommendations following its comprehensive 18-month market study into New Car Retailing and the implications of these findings for the Australian automotive aftermarket industry.
Aaron Lowe, senior vice president of regulatory and government affairs, for the U.S.-based Auto Care Association, and Scott Brown, president of the International Automotive Technicians Network, will both make two special presentations at Autocare 2018. One of Australia’s most highly regarded economists Saul Eastlake and famed demographer Bernard Salt join a vast list of convention stream-specific speakers and major industry figures taking part in this not-to-be-missed educational industry event.
While attendance at the information stream specialized Autocare 2018 convention presentations has a cost component, it also is important to note that members of the trade who wish to visit Autocare 2018, meet with the companies on display and learn from the interactive training displays and take part in the event’s networking opportunities, can do so free of charge throughout this first major automotive aftermarket industry event to be held in Sydney in five years.
Autocare 2018 also will feature a gala dinner event that members of the trade can also attend, designed as a major networking opportunity for repairers, suppliers and service providers.
