Andrew Page heads to Newcastle for latest AutoInsider Live! trade show

With interactive displays, competitions, giveaways, technical seminars and even the chance to win a MINI, garage technicians and apprentices across the north of England are gearing up for Andrew Page’s latest AutoInsider Live! show at the Metro Arena, Newcastle on Thursday this week.

As the first event to take place through the afternoon and early evening, the Newcastle event is the third AutoInsider Live! trade show of the year, following successful shows in Warwickshire and Surrey. Covering Andrew Page branches across the North, AutoInsider Live! Newcastle, will build on the success of the previous events, providing a unique mix of activities designed to help qualified and aspiring vehicle technicians stay up to date with the latest developments in the automotive aftermarket.

Featuring presentations and technical seminars from Bosch, and LuK, as well as a live demonstration area and supplier exhibits, the exciting series one-day events is supported by many of the automotive industry’s leading suppliers. The Newcastle event will also feature exclusive competitions, supplier interviews and Q&A sessions.

As well as having the chance to meet suppliers face to face and see what new products are available, all attendees from each event in 2015 will be entered into a draw to win a MINI. Entry to the draw is completely free, with the winner announced at the final AutoInsider Live! event of 2015, taking place in Doncaster this November.

In addition to the prize draw for the MINI, each attendee gets a free spin of the Wheel of Fortune to win a great selection of prizes including an iPad, 50inch LED TV and tickets to upcoming race events.

“It is great to be able to bring AutoInsider Live! to Newcastle, and the Metro Arena is set to be a brilliant venue from which to host the show,” said Annalize Davy, Marketing Manager at Andrew Page. “This is our first event to have the later start time, which hopefully gives attendees a bit more flexibility and has limited impact on their working day.”

Entry to the event is free and tickets can be obtained by contacting any branch of Andrew Page.
