The Original Equipment Suppliers Aftermarket Association (OESAA) has announced that next month’s Autoinform Live, due to be held at the GTG Academy in Wolverhampton from 25-26 April, has been postponed due to escalating restrictions as a result of the Novel Coronavirus pandemic.

OESAA chairman, Nigel Morgan, said: “We have taken the regrettable decision to postpone Autoinform Live due to circumstances beyond our control.

“Many trainers have been forced to withdraw from the event due to company-imposed restrictions, and we feel compelled to help limit industry exposure to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Obviously this decision was not made lightly and is deeply disappointing to everyone at OESAA, as well as our associates, who have all worked so hard on the event up to this point.

“All those who purchased tickets have already been refunded, and we hope that they will again sign up to attend a rearranged event at the same time next year.

“OESAA remains committed to delivering the industry’s most educational and informative training events, so we are hoping that Autoinform Ireland, due to take place on September 26-27 at the NSC in Dublin, will not be affected.

“We hope that, by then, we will all be able to get together for what promises to be another fantastic weekend.”
