Dear Visitor Welcome to the Private Hire and Taxi Exhibition 2013. Following another successful exhibition in Coventry last year, we are again proud to sponsor this excellent exhibition, which remains the largest taxi show in the UK. This year the venue has changed to EventCity in Manchester and once again it promises to be extremely successful. Exhibitors from all aspects of the private hire and taxi trade will be in attendance and it is certainly worthwhile visiting all of the stands to make sure that you are up to date with all the latest gadgets, technology and other facilities to assist you in your profession. This year is the 65th anniversary of the foundation of Westminster. We were created by taxi drivers for taxi drivers and we remain totally committed to providing taxi drivers with the excellent service they deserve. We offer possibly the best taxi policy on the market with many extras such as breakdown and legal expenses included free. Always keeping up with trends and requirements, we are also delighted to offer a 10% discount to policyholders who have cameras fitted in accordance with our specifications. We consider the use of cameras an excellent way to fight back against the spurious claims which have forced the increase in premiums over recent years. We want to help you against this attack. We consider ourselves the taxi driver’s friend so please visit us at our stand and get your free goodie bag, PLUS enter our five free draws where the prizes will be the latest ipad. Enjoy the show and we look forward to seeing you. Chas Reilly
