We’re pleased to announce details about this year’s VRA seminar, which is being sponsored by Cazana.

Called “2020 Vision,” it will take a wide-ranging look at issues likely to affect the used car and van markets next year, ranging from a possible recession and Brexit through to the latest in online retailing and maintaining dealer margins, as well as examining future mobility and consumer behaviour.

The event will take place at The Slate, Warwick University on Wednesday 27th November, and there are free places for up to 150 delegates. Registration is now available at bit.ly/vra2711 to all VRA members and anyone who works in the automotive sector, and we would encourage you to register for your place as soon as possible.

Sam Watkins, chair at the VRA, said: “It is no exaggeration to say that the factors being faced by the remarketing sector into the next year are unprecedented in their scope and scale.

“At a macroeconomic level, we have the highly unpredictable effects of Brexit, at a vehicle level we have electric cars starting to arrive in the sector in larger numbers, while in retailing we have everything from increased online presence through to mobility solutions.

“Taken together, these subjects could bring about genuinely structural changes to remarketing. What we will be doing is looking at the picture in a format that is designed to be fast and informative, providing as much information as possible within a day to VRA members and other delegates ranging from fleets to manufacturers and dealers to leasing companies.”

Rupert Pontin, Director of Insight at Cazana, added: “We’re very excited to be part of this year’s seminar and pleased to be working with the VRA on 2020 Vision. Our award-winning realtime technology has the potential to help many businesses in the remarketing sector navigate next year more effectively and make better margins. We are looking forward to using this exciting day to get our vision across to this important industry audience at this time of political and economic uncertainty and change.”

Details on speakers will be released later this month.
