Book now for Autoretailing 2009

There is only a week left to book your ticket for the Autoretailing Dealer Conference, where issues ranging from business rates to Scrappage will be covered by industry experts.

Taking place on June 4 at Birmingham Hilton Metropole, the event chaired by broadcaster and motoring expert Quentin Willson will feature an international line-up of over 20 speakers and panellists.

In response to last week’s launch of the UK scrappage scheme to boost vehicle sales, Autoretailing will also include a panel discussion reviewing the first weeks of the scheme and looking at how dealers can make the most of the opportunity.

Panellists include:

• John Proctor from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders
• Louise Wallis, Head of Business Development, National Franchised Dealers Association
• David Manchester, managing director, Charters Group
• Ian Parsons, Policy & Regulation Manager in the Automotive Unit of Business Relations, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform, BERR

President and CEO of Group 1 Automotive, Earl Hesterberg will be providing an outlook on ‘sales strategies for a tough market.’

It is all the more valuable because he has worked with three of the world’s great automobile companies – Ford, Toyota and Nissan – and has manufacturer, independent distributor and retailing experience.

The conference will be followed by the annual AM100 Dinner - the showcase of the UKs biggest dealer groups.

The Rt Hon David Blunkett MP will lead the after-dinner entertainment and answer questions from dinner guests on current industry issues on the evening of the conference.
