Derrick Lawton, CEO at A1 Motor Stores: “Last years convention was a huge success and with very few trade shows still around now, we are proud that the A1 trade show remains popular. It provides an opportunity for suppliers’ to meet customers old and new, for our members it provides a forum to exchange news and ideas, to see new products and get special on-the-day deals and to secure your future.”


Other fantastic prizes to be won include: A day trip on a British Pullman Golden Age of Travel Steam Locomotive (choice of British destinations, includes meals, champagne, wine and site seeing). London Theatre tickets and Five Star overnight stay for two and a Ferrari driving experience for two.

This is what delegates said about last years show:

“The show really buzzed all day long. There was no let up at all. Members were queuing to get onto the suppliers stands.”

“This years A1 Trade Show proved to be our most successful show yet. We achieved excellent sales/orders on the day.”

“The A1 Motor Stores Convention and Trade Show is always an excellent professional event. We were really pleased with the response to our participation at the trade show.”
