Member Events - August 2018

31 July 2018

The IGA is bringing another brand-new presentation to garages across the country at our 2018 Member Events. Our expertise across all areas of the independent service and repair industry means that you can keep your garage business well acquainted with the latest information – with the advantage of tea, coffee and a buffet lunch.

Our 2018 Roadshow is packed with essential information and advice that you need to be aware of to run your garage business effectively, avoid the latest scams, and keep on top of new legislation such as the recent MOT Manual updates and the implementation of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Attendees can also discover how your IGA membership lets you benefit from our experience to minimise the risks to your garage business, and ensure you’re thriving in an ever-changing, increasingly complex industry. As per last year, the DVSA are continuing to join us to discuss the latest MOT training news and updates to the MOT Testing Service in a face-to-face environment, for your ease.

As well as our own upcoming Member Events, the IGA will be looking to the future with Mechanex Coventry in October. The IGA team are planning in-depth talks to help you know what’s best for your business, as well as exhibiting on stand at the event for you to talk to.
