Merry Christmas from AM.
It's been quite a year, to say the least. Thank you, our readers, for your attention and support through the rollercoaster ride of 2020, I'd glad we've been able to deliver the news and features that you've found useful and interesting as you and your teams negotiated the twists and turns of socially distanced motor retailing.
AM is now on a break from Christmas Eve afternoon until Monday, January 4. We will keep an eye out for any major breaking news, however.
Meanwhile, I'd urge all dealers and OEMs to ensure you've registered ready for our free online Automotive Management Live event, being held on January 20-21. It will be packed with insightful presentations from expert speakers, case studies from fellow dealer groups, plus strategic insight into dealer property, business models and the 2021 economic outlook. And once you've registered, you can watch it live on January 20-21 and join in with th networking, or watch it again at any point within 28 days afterwards.
