As Mentioned On




During the day, there will be a conference where you will hear from industry speakers on how to run your business more productively and efficiently. Also, you will learn about the latest business technology tools to assist in accomplishing the change. The conference includes lunch and non-alcoholic beverages.

Evening Event

In the evening, there will be a 3-course meal where you will have the opportunity to network with other successful garage business owners and key members of staff. It will be an opportunity to discuss what's been learnt during the day and other business-related topics.

Bonus - unofficial pre-event

As always, many attendees arrive at the conference the night before and meet up for a pint. If you are new to the community, this is a fantastic opportunity to break the ice and start networking.

Your convenience is the key objective

Drop your bags on Friday night and pick them up on Sunday morning.

Both the day conference and evening event for The Blend 2023 will take place in a high-class conference centre attached to a hotel.

Fresh content

We aim to eliminate repeat content as much as possible. That applies to both business topics and the software. We are therefore preparing something special for The Blend 2023.

Breakout Sessions

It's hard to please everybody with the same content, therefore The Blend 2023 will have breakout sessions so that you can choose the content that's more relevant to your needs.

Add tickets to your Garage Hive bill

We've simplified the ticket purchase process so that you can book through your Garage Hive system and add the cost of the tickets to your Garage Hive bill.

Air-con and ventilation

The venue of The Blend 2023 is brand new and meets the latest standards so that air conditioning and ventilation won't be a problem.

More Garage Hive content

Thanks to the breakout sessions, it will be possible to deliver much more helpful Garage Hive content for those who want it. This will be useful for both the new Garage Hive users and experienced ones.


Build new connections

Influence software development

Meet other garage owners and build connections that can be helpful in all areas of your business.

Meet the Garage Hive team in real life. Discuss your development ideas with the developers. Get expert advice on solving specific problems and unlock the true potential of the most advanced GMS in the market.
