ALEX - Auto Locksmiths Expo - This weekend 27th and 28th October
"Well I am officially gobsmacked!" says organiser Mick Friend. "I have had confirmation that almost every auto expert in Europe will be there - the show has arrived."
It's not too late to attend - you can register on the day! You can book demonstrations on the day! As well as meeting suppliers, visitors will also have the opportunity to see live demonstrations in a dedicated demonstration area. There is a full programme of demonstrations running on both days, in either half hour or one hour slots. Experts will give master classes while being filmed live and projected onto plasma screens. The audience will not only be able to see the demos in close detail but will also be able to ask questions. There will be great show prices, deals to be had and bargains to be negotiated. If you're thinking about becoming an auto locksmith or want to see the latest equipment or improve your skills, there can be no better place to find the answers you need.
The show also features the world famous Jim Hetchler from Texas. Jim is the owner of Key Pro, Key Pro Web and Just Cars! He travels and teaches extensively in the USA and internationally. He will be showing the new 3D Pro Extreme.
Auto Locksmithing has come a long way since the early 1980's and today's specialist locksmith needs a wide range of specialist tools and skills to carry out even something as routine as replacing a modern car key. With fifteen confirmed stands and over 500 pre-registered visitors ALEX looks set to be a great show for Auto Locksmiths.
Auto locksmithing has also become a very technical profession which requires constant training and updating of the latest technology and opening techniques. To maximise the opportunity to learn from the experts, we have taken training out of the closed classroom and instead are holding a continuous programme of live demonstrations during both days. The demonstrations can be booked on an individual basis or visitors can purchase day or weekend passes.
Check the website for further information: www.alexpo.co.uk you can pre-register here or book a demonstration.
