Essential information for end of life vehicle dismantling, depollution and recycling


Catch the World Cup Semis at CARS!

On the 11th July 2018, CARS will open its doors for the fourth time and this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever. With more content, features and activities to take part in across the two days, the organisers have advised that local hotels are being booked up at an unprecedented rate and are encouraging visitors to secure their preferred options.

A contributor factor to this is the recent launch of the CARS Summer Party, brought to you by headline partner and software provider Hollander International.

The evening, which will take place in the Strollers Suite onsite, promises relaxed networking and entertainment in an informal setting. Enjoy a local ale and something from the gourmet BBQ as we watch the World Cup Semi Final on the large outdoor screen.


Offering a fun and vibrant atmosphere, the summer party serves as the perfect opportunity for visitors and exhibitors to treat clients and offers second to none networking opportunities with the industry’s biggest players.

Early bird tickets are priced at just £25 (full price £40) – which includes a free drink courtesy of bar sponsor Hensel Recycling, and a meal from the gourmet BBQ – however there are a limited number of these available, so book early to secure your discounted rate.

With a full evening programme including food, drink and activities, the CARS Summer Party promises to be the industry networking event of the year.
