Why did ADI Events create The Driving Instructor Show
As an active ADI I wanted to visit just such an event. The industry seemed lacking in this area. There are industry magazines and web sites with which to view all the products and services that would interest me. Unfortunately, without picking up the phone, I couldn't talk about them. I wanted to have the opportunity to meet the service providers and chat to them about my needs and my driving school business direction. Whenever I met other instructors, whether at training days or test centres, I got the feedback that I was not alone in my thinking and that it was something that many other instructors also wanted.
I knew about other similar events, Drivertrainerexpo and various association conferences to name but a few. These events are of course brilliant, but I wanted something different that was free to enter and within a reasonable distance of my home.
I approached the DIA with my idea and was delighted at the enthusiastic response. Further interest came from potential exhibitors and other industry bodies. I then felt that this was no longer an idea but now reality.
The first Driving Instructor Show staged in London on Sunday 23rd April was a great success with over 500 ADI's attending. The 2018 event attracted over 1200 ADI's.
I hope that you will find the 2019 event as beneficial to your driving school business as I will.
