Member Events - June 2018

30 May 2018

The IGA is continuing our ever-popular Member Events into the summer, which help keep garages across the country up-to-date with the latest issues affecting the independent automotive industry – with the additional bonus of tea, coffee and a buffet lunch.

Our latest presentation for 2018 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 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 Event in Pontefract on 12th June, the IGA will also be exhibiting at this year’s Automechanika Birmingham event on 5th-7th June. We will be located in the new Garage Quarter on stand S126, so you can discuss the issues affecting your business face-to-face with our staff. Read on to see what else is at this year’s exhibition and for information on how to get your free tickets.
