Member Events - February 2019

31 January 2019

After a short break, the IGA’s Member Events are back for 2019! These ever-popular meetings provide you with the opportunity to discuss everything from the smallest to the biggest issues affecting the sector, in a face-to-face setting – with the advantage of tea, coffee and a buffet lunch.

Our 2019 presentation covers everything your business needs to know to thrive in the fast-paced service and repair sector, avoid the latest scams, and keep on top of new legislation such as Making Tax Digital (MTD) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It also provides opportunity for discussion of topics such as MOT testing and Garage Work Providers.

You can also discover how your IGA membership lets you benefit from our experience to minimise the risks to your garage, and ensure your business develops in an ever-changing, increasingly complex industry.

As per last year, the DVSA are continuing to join us to directly discuss the latest MOT training news and updates to the MOT Testing Service, for your ease.

Our upcoming Member Events for 2019 are:

Doors open at 09:30am, and the presentation starts promptly at 10:00am. Tea/coffee and a buffet lunch will be provided.

All 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. To book a place at one of our events, click on the event you would like to attend and complete the booking form to reserve your place (up to 3 per member). These events are also open to non-members of the IGA.
