The United Aftermarket Network says it has had a positive reaction to each of its trade shows run so far this year.
UAN member Manbat has been present with a stand at each of the group’s shows in 2013, and says the recent show in Lancashire was a big hit with the team and visitors.
UAN members enjoyed a five percent discount on any products from its Varta, Lucas or Numax brands and also enjoyed discussing industry issues with the team. In particular the Manbat team was advising on the challenges workshops are beginning to face as the latest battery technology starts to be seen in workshops.
Marketing Manager Myles Pemberton said: “There is always a lot to do to prepare and set up for these type of events, but they are invaluable when it comes to actually getting face-to-face with the members, and we are delighted to be able to report that they were a success for us.
“There is nothing like meeting customers in an environment when they have time to talk and give us feedback when it comes to the brands we represent and the way that we can continue to support them as they try their best to help their own customers. We’ll certainly be back against next time and I’m sure the new contacts we made during the show will develop into long standing business relationships.”
