The Blend 2022 conference opens its doors to the public – Garage Hive

For the first time, the garage management software provider Garage Hive has opened ticket sales to the public for its annual conference and networking event on the 17th of September for garage owners – The Blend 2022 in Birmingham.

Tickets can be booked now on the official event’s website, The Blend | Garage Hive’s Conference. The event is created specifically for business owners within the Independent Automotive Sector to learn about the latest technology, business practices and Garage Hive and how to utilise it best in their companies.

Among Garage Hive speakers, there will be sessions with the industry author Hayley Pells, the CEO of Autotech Group Gavin White, garage business development and technical training coach John Batten, industry leader David Massey and industry practitioner Alex Lindley.

The Blend 2022 is not for profit event and only focuses on key factors that bring value to the attendees and the industry. Garage Hive takes pride in the community’s strength. All eager garage owners and senior managers can get together, share their experiences with one another and learn from the experts. The event consists of a full-day conference with multiple sessions to attend, a supplier exhibition area with brands like Castrol, Autotech, Pichler and others, and a more relaxed environment for networking in the evening with a 3-course meal.

Each year the Blend grows bigger and better. It all started in 2019 when Garage Hive had an idea and saw the opportunity to bring its customers together to share the newest upcoming features and connect with them to build better software for their needs. It was a great success that led to planning the next event held last year in Nottingham. This year’s conference will take place in Birmingham, and it is expected to have 200 attendees.

Highlights of the testimonials from The Blend 2021:

Neil Fitch (Fitch Autos): “The Blend is good because there are a lot of like-minded garage owners here, a lot of good speakers. So, you will always take something away from it and see new features for the software. And yes, just being able to speak to other garage owners is a massive thing because you all. have got different ideas, and you will take something from everyone.”

Simon Williamson (Marc’s Garage): ”The Blend is a great event because it is a chance to get together with all the garage owners. It is a place to come and learn about new things as well.”

Kirsty Watson (Autocentre Chorley): “The Blend is very important just the networking part alone of meeting people and sharing ideas. We have only been here for a day, and there are already things that I know I will take back.”
