Car Dealer Magazine held its biggest conference ever on Friday at Rockingham Motor Speedway – with delegates enjoying a stellar line-up.

A conference hall packed with more than 40 motor trade exhibitors greeted car dealers when they arrived at the circuit in Corby, Northamptonshire for the Car Dealer 20/20 Vision Conference.

And they were treated to an impressive cast of speakers which included Kia’s UK president Paul Philpott, along with experts from Google, Microsoft and many more.

More than 300 dealers attended the event which included special sessions for Future Leaders and our Top 100 Most Influential Dealers on Twitter in the afternoon.

Feedback from delegates was superb and the conference hashtag #CDC14 even started to trend on Twitter – a sign of the popularity of the event.

Car Dealer Magazine managing director James Baggott said: ‘We’re delighted we could bring together so many dealers, exhibitors and speakers to enjoy a unique opportunity to network and pick up new ideas for their businesses.

‘The Car Dealer team and I would like to thank everyone who attended for taking time out of their busy schedules and we’re looking forward to building on this year’s success in 2015.’


Here’s what some of those who attended the event had to say on the social media network:
