Following the huge success of the Automotive Careers Expo in 2021, we are pleased to confirm that the event will return to The British Motor Show in 2022, with even more exhibitors and even more dedicated content, which is moving to The IMI Tech Theatre.
Taking place alongside the British Motor Show, which will run from August 18-21 at Farnborough International, Hants, the Expo aims to help the sector address a skills shortage, encourage more young people and women into the industry and help those looking for new roles.
As we emerge from challenging times, manufacturers and suppliers are finding it hard to recruit the necessary skills into the industry and industry bodies such as National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA), with its Drive My Career campaign, are launching programmes to attract new talent for their members.
The British Motor Shows mission is to Educate & Entertain and is committed to supporting the industry, reinforcing this by delivering a show aimed as much at supporting the industry and those that work within it as it is about providing great entertainment for the general public.
Exhibitors at The British Motor Show will be able to participate in the event for free, which is once again expected to attract industry leaders, retail and franchise managers, car and van manufacturers and technology bosses through the doors of Farnborough International.
Andy Entwistle, CEO and Show Director, said: “The resilience and brilliance of the automotive industry has been tested more strongly than ever in recent times and as we emerge into a much brighter future, keeping the best talent flowing into the sector will be a vital part of our regeneration.
“The Automotive Careers Expo will be a massive part of the show and we hope to see this continue to grow every year. Our planning and commitment to the Show, along with the Pop-up Motor Show concept we invented, has already paid dividends, with soaring advanced bookings proving that the mix of Education and Entertainment is just what the Great British Public want.”
