This month, the InAutomotive team attended two major events in the automotive calendar, Automotive Management (AM) Live and the ABP Club’s annual convention and Night of Knights.

AM Live, held at the Birmingham NEC, is billed as the UK’s leading event for motor retailers, enabling visitors to connect with a full range of suppliers, share best practice and discuss the future of motor retail.

The drop in format included seminars such as ‘How video has evolved the vehicle sales process’ and ‘Go with the numbers – why your dealership can’t ignore social media anymore.’

Hailed as their most successful event yet, with over 800 visitors attending, exhibitors included Codeweavers, Key Tracker, The IMI, and of course, us! Our team, including Dylan Bustin, Leanne Wheater, Chris Cartwright and Hannah Tillotson were on hand all day to help employers directly with their recruitment needs.

Throughout the day, we also ran a competition enabling one lucky winner to win a pair of Manchester United tickets, and we can exclusively reveal that it was (drumroll please) Chrysalis Loyalty who won the tickets! Big congratulations to them.

Also this month, our Manager, Tom Lowcock, accompanied by Business Development Manager, George Gallagher exhibited at the ABP Club’s annual convention and Night of Knights at Resorts World in Birmingham.

During the convention, Lowcock took to the stage to introduce and explain what recruitment services the InAutomotive team can provide. He said, “It’s the second year in a row now that I’ve spoken at this event and it’s always very well received. I always get a lot of people approaching me afterwards eager to hear more.”

The convention was followed by an evening of celebration, particularly for Stanners Equipment who won the ‘Bodyshop Capital Equipment Supplier’ award, and for Managing Director, John Stanners, who scooped the prestigious ‘Special Recognition’ award for his dedication to raising repair standards within the industry.

John Stanners Jnr said, “Just as we were beginning to celebrate this big win, came the announcement that my father, John Stanners, whose own father (my grandfather) founded the company in 1957, was the recipient of the ABP Special Recognition Award. He was truly humbled.”

He continued, “It was an evening we will always fondly remember and we hope to shine again at next year’s awards.”
