VRA to address new and used car market at 2021 Outlook seminar

Sam Watkins VRA chair

The Vehicle Remarketing Association will cover a range of issues impacting a 2021 new and used car market which promises to be “difficult in all kinds of ways” in its upcoming outlook seminar.

Cap HPI head of valuations Derren Martin, Cazana director of insight Rupert Pontin, and Jayson Whittington, chief car editor at Glass’s will be answering questions on The Used Car Market in 2021 in the November 5 online event.

The webinar is part of a series of 30-minute briefings that the VRA is holding over the coming weeks which are designed to provide an expert summary of next year’s prospects in key areas of remarketing.

Last week Steve Freeman, head of automotive at MHA Consulting, started the series of webinars by looking at Possible Coronavirus Scenarios in 2021.

VRA chair Sam Watkins said: “There is little doubt that next year is going to be difficult in all kinds of ways and there is a genuine thirst throughout the remarketing sector for credible information and guidance.

“I think everyone realises that vehicle valuations over the next year could be especially tricky with so many unpredictable factors potentially affecting the market and we are pleased to have three of the most knowledgeable people in the industry taking part in this forthcoming webinar.

“It’ll be interesting to see where they agree and, of course, where their thoughts may differ.

“Also, the discussion format we are using will mean that VRA members and others will be able to actively take part in the dialogue. We’re expecting it to be one of this year’s essential webinars.”
