The Countdown to the Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo is on!

The sold out Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo returns to the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from 6 – 8 April with the nation’s most comprehensive exhibition of vehicle repair and servicing equipment, replacement parts, tools and accessories. Co-located  with the Collision Repair Expo visitors will be able to check out a combined total of 437 exhibits over five acres of display space which will be one of the largest automotive trade events ever held in this country.

The automotive industry in Australia is undergoing unprecedented change driven by economic factors, the complexity of the car parc, changes in vehicle and information technology, changes in industry dynamics as well as the changing capabilities and needs of our workforce and customers.  With this in mind, a strong focus in our event planning is on ensuring that Expo visitors are able to experience the latest innovative products and services in our industry as well as high quality education and networking opportunities to help you build a better auto business.

We will once again be offering an extensive range of free seminars at the Expo with a new and innovative direction, featuring multiple presenters and contributors, and industry expert facilitation. The AAAA has commissioned 30 year industry expert Colin Bockman to assist in the selection of relevant subjects and to ensure that the sessions deliver insights and  tips  that can be easily implemented to help  attendees future-proof their businesses. Topics include selecting the most appropriate diagnostic tool for your business, educating the customer to value your expertise, making the most of the emerging diesel opportunities, how to be a better boss in the modern auto repair industry, understanding future diagnostics and OEM technologies and finding and keeping the best technicians.
