We are bringing a new element to the Show with the launch ofGarageExpo in Hall 3.

Many operators are being encouraged by their work providers to recover and fix to avoid long relays, so it makes sense to introduce the tools and equipment sector to the show for the first time.
GarageExpo will have its own entrance at Hall 3 but the show will be integral to the Tow Show with access to all three halls from any of the three entrances – there will be truly something for everyone at the Tow Show and GarageExpo 2013!
More later about next year’s show but make sure you book the date and venue in your diary
