Countdown to Motor Mech

What you can expect about the long-anticipated Motor Mech Show.

Motor Mech is always an exciting event on the MIWA calendar, giving us an effective platform for promoting our industry among the country’s youth. Since the Covid pandemic forced us to put the event on hold for the past two years, we are thrilled to announce that the East London Motor Mech Show will take place on Youth Day, June 16 – an appropriate date indeed.

The show will be hosted at Port Rex High Technical High School, which has played an instrumental role in planning the event. We are very grateful for the enthusiasm and support shown by this special partner.

Three years of careful planning have culminated in a show agenda, including highlights such as the Junior Motor Mech Competition, where we invite contestants to answer questions and practical tasks based on the Electude system currently used by our apprentices. Students from Port Rex and Alphendale have been invited to take part in this competition, standing the chance to win fantastic prizes from our suppliers.

Look out for new car displays from fellow NADA members, as well as vintage car and bike displays from local clubs. Affiliated role players like Motohealth and MerSETA will be showcasing their brands, and we’re also hosting food stalls and a kiddies’ play area, with a local DJ creating a festive atmosphere and lucky draws taking place throughout the day. 

We invite all MIWA members to participate in the show: setting up a stand not only gives you the opportunity to educate members of the public about your offering but also allows you to meet potential apprentices. Your presence at Motor Mech also makes it possible for MIWA to build our profile and educate motorists about the benefits and advantages of using a MIWA accredited workshop.

We’re looking forward to seeing the Motor Mech Show becoming an annual event.
