AutoExCeL show cancelled

AutoExCeL 2005, the aftermarket event due to take place at London Docklands next April, has been cancelled.

Richard Abels, the event’s director, said the show had been hit by a series of competing events, which led to confusion in the market.

In a statement he says: “The AutoExCeL Initiative was not launched into a crowded aftermarket event calendar. It was created on a canvas made blank by the demise of flawed and failed exhibitions.

“No sooner was AutoExCeL announced than the event organisers of the past re-emerged, with re-workings - or dilutions - of those old, failed exhibitions. The confusion created by this plethora of exhibitions has served no-one well - certainly not the industry’s suppliers, the companies asked to exhibit at these events. A great many clearly do not know which way to turn.”
