Inaugural UK remarketing conference announced

The Vehicle Remarketing Association (VRA) has announced it will be holding a conference at the RBS Williams F1 Centre in Oxfordshire on Tuesday, January 25.

The VRA is limiting attendance to around 175 guests in order to create a truly interactive experience for the audience. All attendees will be able to respond to issues raised during the presentations using remote personal voting handsets with instant feedback on audience opinion.

Well-known TV presenter and motoring journalist Ginny Buckley is to host the event, which will include key figures from the remarketing sector and broader motor industry.

VRA chairman John Davies said: “The influence of remarketing activity on the overall welfare of the motor industry is significant and the VRA has been formed to provide this important sector with the voice it needs to properly address relevant issues.

“The response and membership take-up since the launch of VRA in March this year has been pretty overwhelming, which just underlines the gap there was in the market for this type of trade association. The topics which we’ll be presenting at the conference are quite broad and should appeal to anybody involved in remarketing activity, whether with manufacturers, fleets, leasing or rental companies as well as motor dealers.”

A dedicated website that features full details of conference topics, confirmed speakers and sponsorship opportunities, plus an insight into the remarkable venue – which houses 40 years of Frank Williams motor racing history – is available on a link from www.vehicle-remarketing.co.uk.
