National ABP Club Meeting & Expo


ABP logoABP Club is delighted to be returning to The Westerwood Hotel, Cumbernauld, for our third Annual National ABP Club Meeting and Expo, sponsored by Gildeas Solicitors, on Tuesday 11 September.

Two years ago, we set out on this journey to serve the Scottish Repair market better by holding Annual Meetings and Business to Business Forums, which have proved to be most popular. This year we return for what should be the biggest networking event for the Scottish Body Repair Industry in 2012.

On the Monday evening preceding the meeting, we will once again be holding a social dinner where bodyshops, insurers and suppliers can network in a relaxing atmosphere. This is free to attend for all meeting delegates courtesy of the tremendous support that we have once again received from our event partners and exhibitors – all of whom will help make the whole event the biggest and best event of the year for the Scottish Bodyshop Industry.

ABP Club sponsors and event partners at time of going to print are:

Gildeas Solicitors
Brown Brothers Distribution
Enterprise Rent-A-Car
Euro Car Parts
GTG Training Innovation Group
Institute of the Motor Industry
Mirka UK
Brown Brothers Distribution
Scots Auto Scene (Media Partner)

The exhibition will be open from 8.30am when registration will commence, with the meeting starting at 9.30am. There will be a 40 minute mid-morning break and the meeting will conclude with lunch at 1.15pm – the exhibition will be open during the break and lunch.

The speakers for the meeting are being finalised, however we are delighted to confirm that a large bodyshop of note, BSI and Thatcham will provide the latest information on their respective businesses and Gildeas Solicitors will also provide a legal update.

Following the meeting, we will hold a social golf game for interested swingers and hackers and because of the weather last year, we can only hope for better this time around!

The event promises to be a fantastic platform for the industry to get together and to share experiences.
