The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) has announced SAPE Group (Sydney Automotive Paints and Equipment) as the major sponsor of the Collision Repair Expo, the industry show which is co-located with the Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo and scheduled for 7 to 9 April 2022 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, Australia.
The AAAA said SAPE Group’s sponsorship is a “glowing endorsement” of the event, which caters to an industry sector with a combined annual revenue of $7.8 billion.
“We are very pleased to have Sydney Automotive Paints and Equipment again throwing their support behind the Collision Repair Expo as our major corporate sponsor,” said Stuart Charity, CEO of the AAAA. “They are a major provider of refinish products and collision repair equipment and will enjoy their prominent position in front of a passionate crowd of industry professionals during the show.”
SAPE is a leading distributor in Australia, supplying a vast array of collision repair equipment and consumables to vehicle repair facilities around the country. With the return of the expo in 2022, SAPE said it saw an opportunity to renew its major sponsorship of the event.
“We’re proud to return as the 2022 Collision Repair Expo major sponsor,” said Paul McMartin, Director of Sydney Automotive Paints and Equipment. “The CRE presents a great opportunity for SAPE and our industry to come together, network, share and build success. SAPE works with leading manufacturers across the globe and prides itself on bringing innovative products and value adding technology to the collision repair market. We look forward to sharing our experience with show goers come April 2022.”
SAPE joins more than 80 leading Australian and international brands exhibiting at the Collision Repair Expo, which is the nation’s most thorough exhibition of body finishing materials, crash repair equipment and tools in one location. Equipment demonstrations and a comprehensive seminar programme covering major industry trends are also held, helping to foster business efficiency and growth. Entry to both shows is free for everyone working in the automotive industry.
