Our sponsor is KAP Diagnostics, who are well known to our visitors! Here’s what they had to say about ALEX…

“ALEX is a unique trade show dedicated solely to the Auto Locksmith industry, which KAPdiagnostics are proud to sponsor again in 2018. Its specialist characteristic enables the space and time for attendees to get to the real nuts and bolts of key issues, developments & products facing the market at the current time.  

Ideally located at the Belfry Hotel, Nottingham. Venues seminar space enables live vehicle training/demonstrations which we, along with other exhibitors, are able to bring our development teams here to show the latest functionality in practice.

Exceptionally well organised by Mick and the team, ALEX has grown from strength to strength so much so the who’s who of the auto locksmith industry from all over the world attend. If you are in, or thinking of entering the Auto Locksmith arena, ALEX is the place to be.”
