With more than 70 exhibitors filling our two expo halls, keynote speeches from Google, Twitter and many more, and a series of fascinating workshops on subjects crucial to the motor trade, the day has universally been hailed a triumph.
Manufacturer bosses Lance Bradley (Mitsubishi), Nick Connor (Volvo), Andy Barratt (Ford) and Tony Whitehorn (Hyundai) took part in an insightful question-and-answer session and there was input too from some of the UK’s leading dealers: John Tordoff (JCT600), Ken Savage (Perrys), John O’Hanlon (Ridgeway) and Gavin Ruddick (Lookers).
What’s more, a few famous faces joined us in the fabulous surroundings of the famous Northamptonshire race circuit. Tiff Needell and Mike Brewer were both on hand to chat to fans.
There was so much going on, it was tricky for our delegates to fit everything in! Also taking place were special sessions for women in the motor trade and an awards ceremony for the most influential dealers on Twitter.
Watch out for more news from #CDX15 here on the Car Dealer website and of course in future editions of the magazine. In the meantime, check out some of the feedback we received below.
And make a note in your diaries: next year’s Car Dealer Conference & Automotive Expo will take place on Tuesday, May 24, 2015 – again at Silverstone. Exhibitors will be able to book stand space soon.
