VRA 2018 Seminar

22nd November 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

“The Challenges of 2019” 
Cranmore Park Exhibition Centre, Solihull
22 November 2018

Sponsored by Manheim

We’re pleased to announce the VRA’s annual seminar for this year.

“The Challenges of 2019” is designed to provide a complete briefing about all of the major trends and legislative changes affecting businesses involved in car and van remarketing including fleets, dealers and suppliers in a compact, four-hour format.

Key speakers confirmed include:

  • Jonathan Butler of Geldards on the latest ASA developments for dealers
  • Jason King of KeeResources on WLTP
  • Owen Edwards of Grant Thornton on dealer economics
  • Philip Nothard of Manheim on fuel trends
  • Paul Marchment of Arval on hydrogen cars
  • More will be announced soon

Glenn Sturley, chair at the VRA, said: “We adopted this conference format last year in order to provide the maximum amount of useful information in the shortest time. It worked very well and was very popular, attracting more than 100 delegates.

“The fact is that 2019 looks set to be another difficult year in the remarketing sector, with issues ranging from Brexit at a macroeconomic level ranging to the impact of WLTP throughout the motor industry.

“So, once again, we are aiming to deliver a detailed overview designed to help everyone who works in remarketing plan more successfully for the year ahead. We’d also like to thank Manheim, whose sponsorship makes this event possible.”

Laura Lunn, marketing director at Manheim, said: “The VRA plays a crucial role in our industry and their annual seminar is quickly becoming established as a ‘must attend’ event on the remarketing calendar. As well as joining the panel of speakers, we’ll also be sharing the latest thoughts and insights from our Experience Better white paper series. This is an incredibly dynamic time for the remarketing sector and this is a superb forum at which to stimulate the debate.”

Attendance at the conference is free to anyone who is working in any part of the automotive sector, so you are welcome to bring along colleagues.
