What can we expect automotive retail to look like in the near future and what factors are coming into play from retailers in other markets are key considerations in AM's first webinar.
Our webinar is being run in association with CDK Global and it is entitled 'The Future of Motor Retailing'.
Topic areas will include dealers, OEMs, consumers and technology in our 40 minute webinar, which takes place on October 25, from 11.00-11.40am.
Chairing the event is AM editor Tim Rose and our guest presenter is CDK Global director of international strategy Paul Inness.
"We won't just be looking at domestic trends," Inness said. "As technology knows no boundaries we must look at global influences."
"In Europe there is an emerging trend of OEMs changing contracts, making dealers their agents.
“They are rewarded on how well they keep and convert leads, customer loyalty and the consumer experience. Dealers operate in a closed loop with manufacturers measuring their performance more holistically and consistently."
Innes's presentation in our webinar will conclude by answering for dealers the question, 'What should I do now to ensure my business is fit for the future?'.
