Member Events - June 2017

31 May 2017

This year we are continuing to bring you a brand-new presentation to our member events across the country, which members have called “the best IGA event to date”.

We’ll be counting down the top 20 pieces of essential information and advice that garages need to be aware of to run their business effectively, avoid the latest scams and keep on top of new legislation. Discover how your 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 in previous years, the DVSA will also be joining us at our member events to discuss annual training, the MOT system and more.

Here’s where the events are taking place:

Doors will open at 9:30am and presentations will start promptly at 10:00am. Tea, coffee and a buffet lunch will also be provided, and after the event you’ll get the chance to talk to both the IGA team and DVSA and ask your questions.

All of our member events are free to attend, however you will need to book tickets in advance as places are strictly limited to 100 per event. Simply click on the event you would like to book your place (up to 3 per member).
