Australian automotive technicians will have an unprecedented opportunity to ramp up their diagnostic skills at the highly anticipated 2024 Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo (AAAExpo), thanks to two of the world’s foremost diagnostic experts.

The AAAExpo will host industry legends Danny Versluis, aka ‘Diagnose Dan’, and Sean Tipping for an exciting new, in-depth Technical Training Program specifically designed to ensure technicians stay ahead of the curve now and into the future. With their respective skill sets and experience, Sean and Dan will bring a wealth of knowledge to share with technicians.

This exciting new Technical Training Program will run across four days, beginning Wednesday 10 April 2024, a day before the official opening of Australia’s largest automotive industry Expo on Thursday 11 April 2024.

Diagnose Dan is a highly respected automotive diagnostic expert based out of the Netherlands, commonly known for his popular Diagnose Dan YouTube channel, and the Diagnose Dan Technical Support Base, one of Europe’s largest technical help desks.

“I can’t wait to attend the Expo with my colleague Martin Møller. Our ‘keep it simple’ approach helps technicians better understand systems that can look quite intimidating. We know exactly what workshops are struggling with, and our training focuses on providing straightforward solutions,” Dan said.

US-based Sean Tipping has 18 years’ experience in the industry as a full-time technician and instructor and as owner of a mobile diagnostic and programming business. Sean is also the voice of the popular Automotive Diagnostic Podcast when he is not working and teaching.

“I’m excited to be heading to Australia for the first time. I’m ready to share my expertise on electrical and diagnostic procedures. It’s a fantastic opportunity, and I’m grateful for the chance to contribute in a new setting,” Sean said.

Stuart Charity, CEO of the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) is proud to have the pair join the Expo in 2024. “Dan and Sean were chosen for their expertise and profile in the industry, and we are honoured to have them headline our most comprehensive training and education program ever, with more education opportunities to be announced shortly,” Stuart said.

The new AAAExpo Technical Training Program, with ticket details and prices available soon, will be a valuable add-on opportunity to attendees who want to supercharge their knowledge over and above the fantastic free education opportunities that will be on offer during an action-packed event in Melbourne next year.

Co-located with the Collison Repair Expo (CRE), the AAAExpo is the nation’s only comprehensive exhibition for Australia’s $25 billion aftermarket industry. In addition to incredible training, the world-class event will feature over 400 of the country’s leading companies and display the latest and greatest tools, technology and products across over 21,000 square metres of floor space.

Combined with a dedicated Expo Electrified Zone, ADAS Technology Zone, and 4WD Innovation Zone, plus interactive displays, a networking event and much more, the Expo will be an unmissable industry experience.

The Expo will take place 11-13 April 2024 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (MCEC). To get your free tickets, please visit
