Automechanika Birmingham 2023 Announces Partnership with NTDA

Automechanika Birmingham, the UK’s largest automotive trade exhibition, has announced it will be partnering with the National Tyre Distribution Association (NTDA) for its 2023 event.

The trade association will return to Automechanika Birmingham 2023, as hundreds of quality aftermarket exhibitors sign up to showcase the latest technical innovations, products and services to key industry professionals.

Taking place from 6 to 8 June 2023 at the NEC, Automechanika Birmingham 2023 will be the first UK event since 2019 and is already set to be a sell-out show packed with new brands exhibiting, features and training hubs for collision repair, EV, ADAS and more.

NTDA Chief Executive Stefan Hay comments: “We hope that more of our supplier members will join the hundreds of other businesses at the largest national gathering of automotive professionals in the UK and showcase their latest parts, components, equipment, tools, technologies and services this year.

“Of course, we also hope that as usual many of our full tyre distributor and fast fit centre members will also visit this fantastic event and come to meet the NTDA team.”

Founded in 1930, the NTDA is a proactive trade association representing and promoting the interests of its members in the tyre wholesale, distribution, retail, mobile and repair sectors of the automotive aftermarket.

Members range from the largest national retail groups with hundreds of depots, to the smallest local family run business, professional mobile tyre fitting providers and international tyre and equipment manufacturers.

By exhibiting at Automechanika Birmingham 2023, the NTDA, along with its aftermarket members such as Absolute Alignment, Autogem, HaynesPro and Silkmoth who have already signed up to exhibit, can expect to see 12,000 visitors, 50 percent of which will be aftermarket professionals, 25 percent motor factors and parts distributors and 25 percent dealers, retailers and franchisers.
