The voice of the independent garage sector

LKQ Euro Car Parts open Aftermarket Event with keynote address

The seminar programme in the Top Garage theatre is heating up with big names from across the automotive sector lining up to deliver sessions to event visitors. LKQ Euro Car Parts CEO Kevan Wooden will deliver the keynote address on the opening day, followed by a high-level panel discussion brought to you by Castrol & The Race Group who are headline sponsors of the event. The first day will also include an update on the independent garage sector by the IGA’s Jonathan Douglass.

Day 2 promises to be equally informative, featuring high-powered panel discussions on the subjects of ‘Healthy Retention in the Aftermarket’, ‘Mixed business? Are EVs still THE future?’, and ‘The evolving shape of the Aftermarket’. Tackling key questions across the sector such as:

  • With an ongoing skills crisis, it makes good business sense to look after the staff you have, but how?
  • What will workshops need to do over the coming years in order to stay relevant and profitable?
  • With the 2030 ICE ban rolled back to 2035, are EVs still set to be the future of motoring?
  • Could today’s mixture of drivetrains become the format for the future?
