Remarketing fundamentals for 2020 is the core theme of the Vehicle Remarketing Association’s first meeting of the year, taking place on January 29 at Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire, hosted by C.Walton.
Key presentations will include Martin Potter, Managing Director, at Aston Barclay on what the auction sector is expecting in 2020 – looking at the general used car and van markets, which vehicles will be in demand, the supply situation and how much stock dealers will be holding.
Nick Chadaway, Managing Director, of DMN Logistics will present on how to get the most out of vehicle logistics in 2020 – including what demand for logistics services will be like, which services will be most popular and how to make most efficient use of logistics services.
Also, Nick Reisinger, National Sales Manager of DEKRA will speak on the latest thinking in vehicle inspections for 2020 – examing how vehicle inspections are developing, what demand for services will be like and how to maximise the effectiveness of vehicle inspection services.
Finally, a general overview of current new and used car and van market trends will be provided by Jayson Whittington, Chief Editor of Glass’s Guide, who will also take a look at how these areas are likely to develop over the next few months.
VRA chair Sam Watkins said: “We have an extensive programme of meetings planned for 2020 where members will receive essential briefings on the remarketing sector and be able to plug into the unrivalled expertise the organisation offers.
“We’re looking forward to kicking off 2020 at Bruntingthorpe with what promise to be four excellent presentations and are especially pleased to welcome the several new members that have joined the VRA in recent weeks.”
She added that the resurgence of the VRA was continuing apace, following its highly successful seminar in November, which was attended by almost 200 delegates.
“There is a definite sense of momentum surrounding the organisation at the moment as businesses across the remarketing sector aim to make sense of the many challenges that the current market presents. Our role is to help equip them to make better decisions.”
