The 2019 Collision Repair Expo – SAPE’s Biggest Ever Display

The SAPE Group (Sydney Automotive Paints & Equipment) says it is proud to, once again, be the official major sponsor of The Collision Repair Expo (CRE), held concurrently with the 2019 Australian Auto Aftermarket (AAA) Expo from 4-6 April at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Building on the success of the Collision Repair Expo in recent years, the SAPE Group says it has committed to expanding its presence at the show, doubling its footprint with four stands spanning 216 square metres – one of the biggest displays at the event.

Stand AD2 and AE2, located near the show entrance, will span 180 square metres and display the latest collision repair technology, products and equipment from international brands such as Celette, GYS, Jollift,  Autorobot, Innovative Tools, Prowotech, Kamatec and IRT/Drester.

A contingent of international guests will be on hand to discuss the latest products on the market. Confirmed guests include Pierre Nicolau and Ratan Youti Samal (Celette France), Cédric Ouguergouz  (GYS France), Jarkko Venäläinen (Autorobot Finland) and Andrea Callini (Jollift Italy).

The first of the smaller stands, AF14, will span 18 square metres and showcase SAPE’s consumables range including Juice Polishes, POR-15 and Scangrip. The company will launch new products, including the much-anticipated Juice Endurance and N-Cut, plus new detailing and work lights from Scangrip.

The second of the smaller stands, AE52, also spans 18 square metres and will feature Roar Advanced Finishing’s automotive range of compounds, glazes and buff pads.

“The Collision Repair Expo is a great flagship event for our industry,” said SAPE Company Director, Paul McMartin. “This year we aim to display many of our popular range of products along with some new and innovative ones which will span over four large display spaces.”
