Staged at the NEC Birmingham, WORKSHOP is the only national forum for the passenger car and commercial vehicle maintenance and repair business in the UK. WORKSHOP is an integral part of the renowned Commercial Vehicle Show, making it easy to attract business from the widest possible audience, from a car repair shop to a heavy goods operator.

Workshopshow 2014


Without doubt WORKSHOP is the single largest and most comprehensive automotive aftermarket event held in Britain. Display any product from the smallest car component to a 44 tonne vehicle lift and prime decision makers from franchised dealers, independent garages, fleet workshops, body repair shops and wholesalers with the intent on purchasing, will see your stand. After all, if they are not interested in buying why would they be there?


Many visitors to WORKSHOP run fleets of cars, vans and trucks. Companies like Centrica, BT and RAC operate huge numbers of vehicles and spend serious sums on replacement parts and garage equipment. The sales opportunities at WORKSHOP are truly enormous. With an exhibition stand you are on hand, together with your product, to meet key buyers face to face.


Before WORKSHOP, to reach this hugely diverse marketplace meant exhibiting at several events dispersed around the country but today, with WORKSHOP and the Commercial Vehicle Show combined into one event, a single stand at the NEC from April 29 – May 1 is all you need.


WORKSHOP space rates are remarkably competitive. Ownership by three of the industry’s leading membership organisations ensures excellent value, with space (only) costing just £77.00 per square metre*. For those preferring a ready made stand, a shell scheme costs just £155.00 per square metre*. Exhibitor rates are deliberately calculated to provide affordable access to WORKSHOP and the Commercial Vehicle Show, offering a really positive return on your investment.

If your target market is the car, van or truck service and repair business, WORKSHOP is the must attend event to grow your sales.
