Exhibitors prepare for 1,000 visitors at Automotive Management Live 2018

AML - Automotive Management Live 2017

Exhibitors, guest speakers and suppliers are preparing to meet over 1,000 visitors at the Automotive Management Live car retail expo on November 8, 2018.

The event has seen record-breaking attendance year-on-year since its launch in 2016, which has seen visitor numbers increase by 108% in just two years and anticipation is rising ahead of this Thursday's return to the NEC in Birmingham.

Social media has helped to map out the preparations and attractions which are set to greet visitors.

Over 50 exhibitors will fill Birmingham’s NEC and delegates will be provided with help and advice from eight best practice sessions, covering online vehicle retailing, customer reviews and more.

AM Magazine will also present awards to winners of the AM Best Dealerships to Work For, an initiative which gives us the chance to honour and celebrate the best employers in the motor retail sector.

A host of competitions and giveaways are being held on-stand. If you are a dab-hand at F1 on the PS4, then you could win a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones from eDynamix on D50.

Visitors to Premia Solutions' stand (A18) could get themselves "into a spin" with a smartly-branded USBs, prizes, and a tonne of industry info.

Judge Service’s managing director Neil Addley, who will be hosting the customer reviews session at 10.15am, has invited attendees to learn more about brands rank amongst customers.

The IMI People Theatre will be running sessions throughout the day, with talks on management and leadership from GMD People’s Nigel Bannister and diversity by Ennis & Co’s founder Lynda Ennis. Additionally, chairman Steve Nash will be holding an informal session with IMI specialists during the afternoon.

The newest addition to AML's ever-growing event features is the Future Dealership Zone, which will see expert speakers give senior leaders insight into how the sector and businesses will evolve over the next decade.

The Zone will see speakers debunk common myths and highlight the need to prepare for a changing retail environment.

Codeweavers will kindly provide visitors to their stand (B22) with a free doughnut - but they warned the AM editorial team that they won't last long!

Online registration is still open for the free-to-attend event, but delegates can also register on the door at the NEC on November 8.
