Waxstock: the trade show

Waxstok is the largest specialized show in UK for car care.

July 2015 Edition:

Waxstock is an event open to the trade and public for those in the detailing/car care/valeting sector. It is the only specialist event of its type in the United Kingdom and has been going for 4 years, attracting international exhibitors and visitors. For those in the automotive refinishing aftermarket, attendance is a must - the retail element allows substantial sales from this one day event (to potentially cover costs or return a profit) and significant exposure/branding also results. Exhbitors have historically included the largest blue chip brands like 3M, Fareca, Meguiars and Autosmart to smaller specialist brands like Dodo Juice, Auto Finesse and Chemical Guys.

What I have to know to exhibit in UK?

Public liability insurance is required to exhibit, but this is quite affordable (often less than 100 GBP for an annual policy). A risk assessment needs to be completed for the stand (normal practice for exhibitors). Overall, exhibiting in the UK is straightforward, easy and economic.
