From its foundation more than four and a half decades ago, Capricorn has always placed a high priority on maximising the opportunities for social interaction amongst its members and preferred suppliers.

2018 was without a doubt the biggest year of social events, highlighted by the Capricorn Convention held in Salou, Spain in May. This event saw more than 700 Capricorn delegates attend the first-ever Capricorn Convention held in Europe.

The most recent member international event was a visit to the SEMA Show held in Las Vegas in November. This annual event saw 78 members fly to the USA to attend this mammoth automotive aftermarket trade show.

The annual Capricorn Gala Dinner and Tradeshows continue to grow each year with record attendances at every event. These events include interactive tradeshows, industry led training, along with live bands and entertainment.

The year also saw members take part in Australia‘s Adelaide 500, and members also took part in numerous national and regional golf days and regional BBQ events.

Members can use their Capricorn Reward Points to take part, and while Capricorn organises many social events each year, some members elected to use their reward points to organise tours of their own. The Capricorn Travel team is available to help both members and non-members plan their next trips.

All these events are on top of ensuring that automotive repair businesses are easier to manage, with members benefitting from instant trade credit and great prices from top name suppliers and the convenience of receiving a single invoice each month for all of their parts, while earning reward points throughout.

Benefits such as Capricorn‘s exclusive AutoBoost business tools, and access to the latest vehicle service and maintenance data, all form part of being a Capricorn member.
