CAR Dealer Magazine has signed up a host of motor industry big names to appear on the CDX16 main stage on May 24.

Screen Shot 2016-02-16 at 16.06.25The Car Dealer Q&A panels, sponsored by CarKeys, will see panelists from car manufacturers, franchised and independent dealers take to the Car Dealer Live stage in the middle of Hall 3 to discuss the most pressing topics.

Chaired by Car Dealer’s James Baggott, the panellists will be asked to share their opinions in front of our live audience with a chance for questions taken from delegates.

The Q&A panels will form a part of a programme of events on the Car Dealer Live stage at the Silverstone-based expo on May 24. Keynote speakers from Twitter, Facebook, Google and Haymarket Automotive will all also appear.

Dealers can sign up for free tickets to the event now by following this link.

Baggott said: ‘Once again we have managed to attract some of the biggest names in the motor industry to take to the stage and answer our questions.

‘Last year’s panels were very popular and the difference in opinion from those that took part was stark – and extremely entertaining as a result. We’ve invited some opinionated motor industry names which will make these sessions must-watch events.’

Car Manufacturers

Andy Barratt, chairman and managing director, Ford of Britain
