The Complete Auto Recycling Show (CARS), Europe’s largest event dedicated the end of life vehicle recycling sector, is moving to the NAEC, Stoneleigh near Coventry, UK.

Expected to welcome an unprecedented 1700 visitors in 2018, the event is now in it’s fourth outing, taking place every other year since 2012. With an additional exhibition hall, more space for outdoor exhibits, and a larger live demonstration area, the 2018 show is bursting at the seams with new attractions and features.

One of those features, brand new for 2018 is the Business Doctors Surgery. Visitors can attend one of the various free seminars across the two days or book a one on one, to hear advice and guidance on how to increase profits and grow your business. The Business Doctors specialise in hands on support for small and medium sized businesses and their insights and anecdotes are guaranteed to give attendees food for thought.

CARS is Europe’s leading event dedicated to recyclers and processors of end of life vehicles but it offers visitors a different experience to your typical trade show. In addition, to the features you would expect to see, visitors will witness equipment working in its intended environment, discover the latest techniques and safety advice in the Skills Lab and have the chance to improve their contacts and discuss new opportunities in the ‘Meet the Buyer Lounge’.

With its excellent accommodation and transport links, the NAEC serves as an excellent platform for industry and ensures that CARS is a must attend for all those connected to the sector. Commenting on this year’s event, Show Director, Rob Mowat had this to say about what they have in store for 2018, ‘We can’t wait for the 2018 edition of CARS. With the event taking place every other year, there is plenty to talk about and lots for both exhibitors and visitors to catch up on.
