The ADINJC & Intelligent Instructor National Conference & Expo ’24 is the most popular event in a driving instructor’s calendar! In 2023, it welcomed over 950 visitors, making it by far, the largest single gathering of instructors in the UK – ever! Over 1,200 visitors are anticipated in 2024, at this free-to-attend event, designed specifically for you the driving instructor. It’s being held Sunday, 28th September at Newark showground, Nottinghamshire.
Visitors can attend a wide range of topical seminars which run throughout the day, in three dedicated areas. The Live Stage sees some of the industry’s top trainers deliver educational sessions, including the DVSA’s CEO. The PDI Zone is a popular attraction, with dedicated sessions designed to help those new to the industry. A third seminar area sees a wide range of topics covered by expert speakers, from road safety to mock tests, from accountancy advice to business advice. In total, there are 25 sessions running throughout the day.
The large expo areas offer unrivaled access to 40+ industry suppliers, showcasing their latest products and services, and offering a valuable opportunity to see what’s new on the market to help your business flourish. Many have special offers, deals, and freebies to give away.
There are lots of fun activities to do on the day too. Outside is a HGV reversing challenge, whilst you can test-drive an adapted vehicle to help teach those with disabilities and/or chat with the enthusiastic EV owners in the largest display of driving instructor EVs. You can also post a hot lap on the giant Scalextric track and have a free professional headshot taken by our event photographer.
Our goal is for visitors to come away educated, invigorated, thinking differently, and passionate about being an instructor. We also wanted to ensure people had fun doing it too! So, if you are new to the industry, perhaps considering becoming a driving instructor, are an independent instructor or even part of a franchise, the ADINJC & Intelligent Instructor National Conference & Expo ’24 is a must-attend event.
