Well that is it for another two years!
The Collision Repair Expo 2017 held in Melbourne from 6th to 8th April was a great success. Talking to exhibitors and visitors the response was the same-excellent!
Some said that they had high expectations and they were exceeded.
There were more than 438 exhibitors occupying more than 21,000 sq mts of exhibit space at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre. The final attendance numbers have not been posted as yet but there were more than 11,000 pre registrations received (more than 1000 of these from overseas) and more than 6000 registered for the 18 seminars offered.
Not only were there many fine exhibits but also demonstrations and of course the Lowbake spray booth was put through it’s paces every day with many exhibitors taking the opportunity to present their products in working conditions.
The CRA (Collision Repair Association) from New Zealand took the opportunity to hold their annual conference and AGM in conjunction with the Expo and were on the Expo floor in force and at the many free seminars on offer.
Talking about the seminars-they were well attended and from all accounts well received.
There will be a full report on the Expo and other activities in the May issue of The National Collision Repairer magazine – watch out for that.
In the meantime enjoy the gallery below – there will be many more photographs in the magazine.
