The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) has announced the SAPE Group’s return as major sponsor of the 2024 Collision Repair Expo (CRE).
According to the AAAA, the SAPE Group’s sponsorship showcases the importance of Australia’s leading collision repair event, catering to an industry sector with combined annual revenue of $7.8 billion.
“We are thrilled to have Sydney Automotive Paints and Equipment (SAPE) continue their support of the 2024 Collision Repair Expo as major corporate sponsor. SAPE are a large provider of refinish products and collision repair equipment and are well positioned to benefit from the passionate crowd of industry professionals during the show,” said Stuart Charity, CEO of the AAAA.
SAPE is a leading Australian distributor of Glasurit and Baslac paints for BASF Australia and supplies a vast array of collision repair equipment and consumables to vehicle repair facilities around Australia.
Paul McMartin, Managing Director of SAPE, welcomed the opportunity to renew the company’s relationship with the CRE.
“Continuing our partnership with the 2024 Collision Repair Expo as major sponsor was important for SAPE. It’s a great opportunity to support an event that brings the industry together and really lifts us up. It’s also a valuable tool for SAPE to share how our innovative equipment, technology, products, and services make a difference to repairers face to face with Expo attendees,” said McMartin.
The CRE will take place from 11 to 13 April 2024 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, co-located with the Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo.
