Unsung heroes represented at Automechanika Birmingham Garage Awards
Shortlisted companies / individuals will receive two free tickets to the awards evening, which takes place on Wednesday 7 June 2023 at Hilton Metropole (NEC), 7pm. The event features networking, awards and prize giving, a three-course meal and entertainment.
Mark Field, IAAF chief executive, said: “Independent garages are often the unsung heroes of our trade, and we hope the Automechanika Birmingham Garage Awards will play a key part in highlighting the brilliant work the sector and individuals have done in recent years to keep UK motorists moving.”
The IAAF represents the largest number of motor factors and suppliers in the automotive aftermarket. To strengthen the federation’s lobbying and networking power, it is adding garages into membership bringing the supply chain closer together. The organisation fights for the rights of the entire aftermarket supply chain to access vehicle repair information to ensure they are on a level playing field with vehicle manufacturers, and the federation proactively lobbies the Government to ensure this can happen.
