An integral part of the 2019 Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo will be the concurrent 2019 Collision Repair Expo that will be held from April 4-6 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
According to the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA), the collision sector of the Australian automotive aftermarket industry has seen significant development in repair techniques, workshop equipment, surface coatings and tooling in line with modern motor vehicle chassis and panel construction, materials and design.
The 2019 Collision Repair Expo will showcase the latest Australian and international innovations for local collision repairers, supported by practical exhibitor presentations, industry seminars and panel discussions.
The importance of the Collision Repair sector was reflected in the significantly high number of trade members who registered specifically for this expo in 2017, according to AAAA. This sector of the aftermarket industry attracted almost 30 percent of the total trade visitors to the concurrently held 2017 Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo and occupied approximately one-quarter of the total exhibitor space.
Industry-leading paint and equipment distributor, Sydney Automotive Paints and Equipment (SAPE), has returned as the major sponsor of the 2019 Collision Repair Expo.
The 2019 Collision Repair Expo seminar program will be strongly supported by I-CAR, which will assist in presenting an impressive line-up of seminars conducted by industry experts and specialists. These seminars will be focused on assisting collision repair business owners to maximize their operating efficiencies and repair techniques.
Along with I-CAR, several leading collision repair industry and media organizations also will be co-locating their activities at the 2019 Collision Repair Expo, making this three-day event an integral part of this industry sector’s growth and development.
The importance of practical displays in relation to panel repair work on exotic new metals and composite materials will be highlighted by the number of 2019 Collision Repair Expo exhibitors who will be performing live practical demonstrations at their stands, along with utilizing the expo’s unique Lowbake Demonstration Spray Booth.
This fully functional spray booth enables every kind of surface coating product to be practically displayed, making this a popular attraction with members of the trade who are keen to see the industry’s latest products in action. It also is a popular promotional platform for exhibitors to showcase their latest surface coating products.
According to AAAA Executive Director, Stuart Charity, “The 2019 Collision Repair Expo will enable businesses within this major industry sector to stay ahead of the latest developments, products and technical training.
“This is a sector of the Australian automotive aftermarket industry that must be fully across the rapid technological advancements in products, tooling and repair processes to future proof their businesses. With practical demonstrations, a detailed industry seminar program and a who’s who of the industry as exhibitors, the Collision Repair Expo has everything that is needed and more all under one roof,” Charity stated.
The speaker and seminar line up for the 2019 Collision Repair Expo is being finalized and will be released shortly, show organizers say.
