Wendy Williamson, IAAF chief executive, said: “We will provide an insight into how the Brexit decision will affect the UK automotive aftermarket and whether it will be the key influencer within the marketplace over the next few years.

“We will also explore the development of the connected car and the role it will play in our industry.

“With our industry becoming increasingly technologically driven, we will look at how we can embrace this form of growth and maintain our relevance within the automotive sphere.”
