THERE are a few things I always look forward to at CDX, but none so much as the expo.
The main reason? Free coffee (but I’m not allowed to say that), free sweets and free donuts, and generally any food-related free gifts. Not that I’d turn down a pen, mug or complimentary bag, either.
However, there are some particularly special stands at CDX this year that you won’t want to miss. For starters, those freebies all pale in comparison when you hear what AutosOnShow are giving away – a BMW i8 Spyder!
True, the all-electric model is about a tenth of the size of the real car and designed for children. But it’s still a great prize! Head to stand G4 to enter the competition for this and a track day.
Meanwhile, On Cue Communications will be giving away a free drone shoot to one lucky business. To be in with a chance of having your dealership filmed from the sky, try your hand at some racing on stand E14.
If you’re looking for a good deal on the day, there are plenty to be found at CDX, too. Trade selling platform Cartotrade.com (stand D6) will be celebrating its fourth birthday by offering free extended trial periods on the new website.
eDynamix have also revealed that anyone ordering one of its new self-serve AutoPoint Lockers at CDX will receive a 10 per cent discount off the monthly rental price! Check eDynamix out at stand E1.
There are three exciting zones to visit during your visit to CDX, too.
The Discovery Zone features businesses who are new to the industry and who you might not have heard of before, giving you an opportunity to find out about up-and-coming products first.
