It’s been a few days now since the ADINJC & Intelligent Instructor Conference & Expo South and looking back at the event, it was without doubt one of our favourites. This was the first event we’ve put on outside of our National Conference & Expo in Meriden.

Our expectations were high due to the ease of travel and fantastic facilities at the venue (even the weather was on our side). And as the event opened, a rush of instructors began to arrive and our speaker rooms in some cases were standing room only!

In total we welcomed over 500 visitors on the day, which is a fantastic showing effort all round. We’d like to say a huge thank you to those who did attend. It was great to see some familiar faces from previous events and of course some new ones (who we hope to see again).

The event certainly had a unique feel with the majority of our speaker sessions busier than ever and some fantastic outside activities. These supported by the Expo itself, where our exhibitors were essentially the central point of the show.

On the day we had a great selection of Electric Vehicles for people to take a look at and speak to the ADIs that run them. Our EV team have been with us since our first event and we thank them for their passion and generosity in sharing their knowledge with other ADIs.

This time round we also ran sessions with the Speed of Sight to give ADIs a chance to experience Blind Driving. This was a huge hit and sold out very quickly.


Not all things run smoothly at events like this, but we’d like to commend the resolve of our friends at Leicestershire Fire & Rescue who despite their VR Van breaking down, still managed to put on sessions for ADIs to experience whilst they waited for Green Flag!


Finally the event was a chance for us to have a physical presentation  of our Intelligent Instructor Awards 2022 and whilst it we knew it would be a bit of a stretch for some instructors to attend. It was great to see some of our Top 100, joiner industry winners to celebrate their achievements.

Overall it was another brilliant event and we’d once again like to thank our headline sponsors Marmalade Network and supporting sponsors Michelin & Kwik Fit for helping make the event happen.

Next our focus shifts to the Meriden for the ADINJC & Intelligent Instructor National Conference & Expo 2022. Book your free tickets by – clicking here!
