VRA Conference will address big used vehicle issues

The Vehicle Remarketing Association (VRA) will hold its sixth Annual Conference, ‘An Industry You Can Bank On’, on May 19. 

The event is being held at Cranmore Park, Solihull, and promises to provide real insight for those involved in the used vehicle market. Delegates will hear the views of the experts in a series of short presentations. Sponsored by Manheim and supported by BCA it will be hosted by TV broadcaster and motoring journalist, Ginny Buckley.

Contributors on the day include Debapratim De (Deloitte), Tim Hudson (Manheim Remarketing), Mark Squires (NFDA), Lynne Goulding (ARUP), David Betteley (JLR Finance), Nathan Coe (Auto Trader), Richard Hill (RBS), Peter De Roussett-Hall (Woburn Consulting), Rupert Pontin (Glass’s), Philip Nothard (CAP HPI), John Stocker (GEFCO), John Davies (VRA) and Glenn Sturley (VRA). 

There will be a number of discussion points, including how the EU referendum will affect the automotive sector and how consumer behaviour will shape a very different environment in the future.

A free app is available for download allowing delegates to obtain information in the run-up to the event, submit feedback during the day, respond to specific issues being discussed and also ask open questions in the panel sessions.

John Davies, chairman of the VRA said: “The VRA Conference is a unique event in the annual calendar when the influencers from the remarketing world and related used vehicle sectors gather to exchange views and draw conclusions.”

Tickets for VRA members are £125 per delegate (+ VAT) and £195 (+ VAT) for non-VRA members.
