CDX18: It’s all systems go for bigger and better automotive expo!

Time 6:00 am, May 21, 2018

THE big day has arrived! Yes, after months of intensive planning and organisation, CDX 2018 opens its doors at 9am today!

Hundreds of delegates will be arriving at the Manchester Central Convention Complex for the biggest and best automotive expo and conference of its kind in Europe.

Our exhibitors spent much of the weekend constructing the huge expo that will form the magnificent centrepiece of CDX. There are more than 100 stands offering all sorts of products and services, and you can get an idea of the expo’s scale in the tweet below by our sales manager Jon Hickey:

CDX is free to attend for dealers, and hundreds of delegates will be taking advantage of the packed programme of workshops and Live Stage sessions today and tomorrow.

This year marks a double first for Car Dealer Magazine’s CDX event – it’s the first time we’ve held it in Manchester and the first time we’ve staged it over two days.

That said, many features that have proved so popular at previous CDX events are returning for 2018.

Rebecca Chaplin, editor of Car Dealer Magazine, said: ‘We’ve worked incredibly hard on this year’s CDX event, and the team and I are sure that everyone who attends will have a fantastic time. We can’t wait for it to get under way!

‘There’s going to be so much going on to help dealerships improve their business and make more money. We’re really excited about it and are especially looking forward to meeting as many of our readers as possible over the two days.

‘A key point is that even if you have only just decided that you would like to come along, it’s not too late. Obviously we’re on the doorstep of dealerships in the Manchester area, but if you’re from further afield you could still get here for tomorrow and we’d love to see you here.’
