Fantastic prize up for grabs for those who dare to enter the Dealers’ Den at CDX!

Time 10:29 am, April 10, 2019

ARE you the next best thing in the automotive industry with a new and innovative product that will really make people sit up and take notice?

Could you do with some free help from business insiders and experts to get it out there?

We’re looking for small upcoming companies and start-ups to take part in a fantastic new feature at CDX this year – Dealers’ Den.

CDX is the most important conference and expo dedicated to the UK retail motor industry, and at this year’s event, being held at Farnborough International on June 12, we’re giving five of you the opportunity to make a five-minute public pitch to our panel of top names from the automotive industry.

Those of you selected will be able to demonstrate what’s so special about your product, how it works and its potential for the industry, with the panellists quizzing you about it.

After all the pitches have been given, a winner will be decided by the panellists and awarded the fantastic prize of a year’s free PR and editorial support from the experts at OnCue Communications and Blackball Media – the UK’s leading automotive PR and media agencies – to push and promote their product.

Worth thousands of pounds, it will consist of the creation of six bespoke press releases over the following 12 months, a feature in Car Dealer Magazine – which reaches up to 12,000 franchised dealers, independents, service and repair sites, car manufacturers and suppliers – plus a free stand at CDX 2020.

Andy Entwistle, managing director of Blackball Media, said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for a young, vibrant company or start-up to really get their new product noticed.

‘Not only will they have the undivided attention of big hitters from the automotive industry with their combined business acumen – something that money just can’t buy – but the amazing PR potential being offered to the eventual winner will be the extra boost that really could take them to the next level and beyond.’

The closing date for applications to enter our Dealers’ Den is Wednesday, May 1. For more information and to apply, email [email protected] with details about your company or start-up, what your product is, and why you should be selected to make your pitch.

Entwistle added: ‘I’m sure there are many terrific new products out there that the industry needs to know about, and I can’t wait to hear about them and give the ones that we can the help they deserve.’

CDX and all related content and sessions are subject to change or cancellation at any time up to and including the event day
