There are just a few weeks until the Complete Auto Recycling Show (CARS) & Metals Recycling Event on 11 & 12 July and the organisers have revealed a jam-packed schedule of activities and things to do across the two days.
With the Government’s announcement in 2017 to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles from 2040, Brexit on the horizon, and the Chinese import restrictions in place, low emission vehicles, Europe and international trade take centre stage at the 2018 event.
European Commission, Director General for end of life vehicles and batteries, Artemis Hatzi-Hull will headline the conference, joined by contributors from Dutch dismantler, ARN and US operator, Counselman Autos. They will explore the future of the dismantling industry across the globe.
Other key sessions include presentations from The Office for Low Emission Vehicles, eBay and electric vehicle specialists Salvage Wire, who will also be running a range of practical workshops. There is also a seminar dedicated to selling in the 21st century with advice for business owners on social media, web design and search engine optimisation alongside sessions delivered by the Business Doctors – experts in SME growth.
In addition to the indoor & outdoor exhibitions, visitors to the July show will witness a range of equipment processing material in its intended environment. Exhibitors include JCB, Blue Fuchs, Arjes, JMC, Butti Sweepers & Hammel and will feature primary shredders, material handlers, forklift trucks with attachments and a shear baler.
With sister show, the Metals Recycling Event taking place at the same time, visitors will have unprecedented access to an audience of vehicle and metal recyclers. Opening for three hours on day two, the Meet the Buyer Lounge provides an opportunity for sellers to meet with buyers and improve their network of contacts.
Across the two days, there are a range of extra-curricular activities which include a subsidised tour of Jaguar Land Rover’s state of the art manufacturing facility, 4X4 driving experiences, falconry and the local British Motor Museum.
