2018 Auto Trade EXPO proves a big success

The 2018 Auto Trade EXPO proved to be a massive success last Saturday and Sunday at the Citywest Exhibition Centre and Arena.

Over 8,110 visitors were there to visit the 196 stands over the two days. There was a big growth in the number of stands catering for all sectors of the auto aftermarket.

An exit poll of visitors showed a exceptionally high level of satisfaction with the number of stands and quality of new products and services being offered throughout.

The exhibitors representing over 900 brands reported their busiest exhibition ever, with more leads, deals done and potential sales than ever before.

Seven major Innovation Awards were also presented for some very impressive new products.

Major awards honouring many of the best operations in all sectors of the Irish Auto aftermarket were presented last Saturday night at the Irish Auto Trade Awards 2019. See separate stories about these elsewhere in this eNewsletter.
