There’s also a chance to win an ABAC Compressor package worth more than £250 and an Evercoat lightspeed pack worth over £1000. Indasa and Alliance Automotive Group will have two vehicle simulators on the stand with a winner’s prize of two VIP tickets to the British Touring Car Championship with NAPA and Apec.

Visitors signing up for a free onsite Bodyshop Demonstration at Teroson’s stand can also win two Grandstand Plus tickets to the London ABB FIA Formula E event in July 2022.
Additionally, Autogem has a selection of TPMS starter kits and sets of Michelin Pro Series wiper blades exclusively available to visitors at discounted rates, while WD-40 will give away products and offer visitors the chance to enter a ‘spin the wheel’ competition.

There is also the chance to win a CF-D1 Panasonic tablet worth £1,595 from Maverick Diagnostics, which is also offering 10 per cent discounts on all OEM package orders taken at the event, saving £596.
“We’ve already had a whole host of deals and discounts confirmed but are expecting plenty more in the run-up to the show, and as in many cases, it’ll be first-come, first-served – we’re urging visitors to arrive early to ensure they don’t miss out and can make the most of what the jam-packed show has to offer,” said Grant Elrick, Sales Director at Messe Frankfurt UK, organiser of the exhibition.
“Not only will [the event] provide a detailed insight into the most up-to-date trends, tools, and technology in the market, but [visitors will] also be able to benefit from significant savings.”
