Press Release: Tickets for The Blend 2022 now fully sold out

Community-driven garage management software developer Garage Hive has announced tickets for The Blend 2022 have sold out. 230 visitors are now registered, with enquiries continuing to be received.

The Blend 2022 is a single-day conference open to all independent garage owners and will take place on Saturday 17th September at Birmingham’s new state-of-the-art conference venue, The Eastside Rooms.

“We’ve been delighted with the level of interest from independent garages,” said Alex Lindley, director at Garage Hive. “The venue could accommodate more, but we want to strike the right balance in generating a busy event whilst also ensuring garages can access the speakers and suppliers they want to see.”

The Blend attendees will be mainly made up of Garage Hive’s growing independent garage customer base, although suppliers, sponsors, trade media and interested garages will also all be well represented.

Renowned industry speakers will cover topics including vehicle technology, staff recruitment, business efficiency and vehicle manufacturer data access. Following a keynote address to the whole conference, delegates can choose their preferred speakers from three options over the next three sessions. An evening meal and entertainment will follow.

The aim of The Blend, which first ran in 2019, is to support garage owners and managers by bringing together the people and ideas to help them identify actionable improvements they can make to their businesses.

A supplier exhibition area with leading brands including Castrol, Autotech Group, Diagnostic Connection, Pichler Tools, Auto IQ and Micheldever Tyre Services.
