The FADRA show is a marvelous fellowship of professional auto recyclers coming together to share, educate, and grow within the automotive recycling industry. I can't go anywhere and buy a bottle of "This is the Best,” but I can go to FADRA and experience the best people and gain long-term, profitable, win-win relationships.
- Hal Hoke, Wolfpack Enterprises 

FADRA is in the top echelon of state shows in the U.S. We look forward to meeting with existing customers and developing new business in the great state of Florida. The convention and trade show are always well run and provide a number of activities for vendors to interact with recyclers. If you want to do business with recyclers in Florida, you had better have FADRA on your calendar for 2023.
- Katrina Hall, RAS 

“FADRA puts on a very well organized and fun trade show. I always look forward to attending and I always come away with great memories. The themed Banquet dinner on Saturday night is always a good time!’ – Julie Cain, Buddy Automotive

FADRA attracts some of the best recyclers in the country. It has one of the most committed Board of Directors and Executive Team anywhere. Each year the show gets better and better. As a vendor, it is an excellent networking event.
