THE Independent Garage Association (IGA), the largest and most prominent trade body for independent garages, will be holding their biggest member event yet at the Car Dealer Conference & Expo next week at Silverstone.
The IGA will also be hosting two stands on the trade floor. Members of the IGA team will be free to discuss industry issues and member enquiries on stand 108, and the IGA’s consumer code scheme for independents, Trust My Garage, will be on display at its own stand, 126.
More than 200 guests of the IGA are already registered for the event. So far, more than 1,800 people have registered to attend the Conference & Expo next Tuesday.
The IGA will provide updates on developments in technology and legislation, news from the Trust My Garage and Car Repair Plan schemes, and information on the latest scams to look out for.
The DVSA will also be presenting up-to-the-minute news on the MOT modernisation project, and will be demonstrating the new system live.
IGA director Stuart James says: ‘It’s a real honour that garages are seeing such value in attending our events. Even though we are only halfway through 2015, from the events so far we have seen as many garages as we did in the whole of 2014.
