The Tasmanian Automotive Chamber of Commerce (TACC) has served the automotive industry in Tasmania since 1928.

There had always been a long standing and mutually supportive relationship between TACC and the Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce (VACC).

TACC successfully lobbied state government on behalf of members for many years, but times were changing and in 1999 TACC and VACC were amalgamated. This merger offered members a more diverse range of services, while still maintaining a Tasmanian perspective on local issues.

Today we are dedicated to the promotion, representation and preservation of member businesses to local, state and federal governments, as well as the media, consumers and the community.

7 October 2021


Industry has welcomed the return of events, with the date for the next Collison Repair Expo (CRE) and Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo (AAAE) announced for 7 – 9 April 2022.

Co-located at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, the events are favourites among those working in Australia’s $25 billion automotive repair and service industry – including many VACC and TACC members. 

Exciting components of the CRE will include a modified and classic vehicle display area in the show concourse, celebrity appearances, interactive displays and competitions. It will showcase the latest collision repair equipment, products, tools and accessories, new technology and trends, as well as a training and education program.

Bringing together hundreds of the country’s leading companies, AAAE organisers have made plans with The Workshop of the Future is Here theme in mind, and will showcase the latest vehicle repair and servicing equipment, parts, tools and accessories, new technology, and trends, as well as an Awards evening. Additionally, the expo will debut a new stand-alone seminar stage on the showroom floor. It will offer attendees a free comprehensive training and education program, and enable exhibitors to showcase their latest products, technology and service offerings to a targeted trade audience.
