Car Dealer Conference

Time 2:59 pm, January 24, 2013

w400_3097425_logoTHIS year Car Dealer is sporting a programme of new and improved events – and arguably taking top bill is the Car Dealer Conference.

New this year, the 2013 Car Dealer Conference – at the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon, Warwickshire, on May 3 – is the ideal event for dealers to learn how to increase their profits.

This year’s headline sponsor is the UK’s leading wheel alignment specialist, Pro-Align. They are giving dealerships the opportunity to discover the very latest in alignment technology which offers a unique Servicing Solution, one that is already delivering proven additional profits of up to 40%.

It builds on the magazine’s popular and successful events of the past, while adding new features to make the conference as helpful and informative as possible.

The event will be the perfect way for attendees to find out how to improve their business by adding profit to their bottom line with a focus on lead generation, maximising sales and F&I.

The day kicks off with coffee and pastries at 9am, with a welcome speech from Car Dealer editor James Batchelor at 10am.

Delegates will hear from five key speakers before a coffee break at 11.25 in the centre’s exhibition hall which will host an Expo of industry stands, which promises to be an exciting and important part of the conference. The Heritage Motor Centre’s exhibition hall will be taken over by around 20 exhibitors who will be on hand to chat about the products and services they can offer to dealers.

After the break, five further speakers will have their chance to give dealers the best advice going. Lunch will follow in the centre’s exhibition hall from 13.15 – when there will be another chance to explore the Expo and talk to the exhibitors.

But the really big news about the 2013 Car Dealer Conference is the live Q&A session. Chaired by the editor after lunch, dealers will hear from a hand-picked panel of industry commentators and experts – the full line-up will be revealed in the next issue of Car Dealer.

The Q&A session will be the perfect opportunity for dealers to ask burning questions on how to make more profit, maximise sales and F&I or simply say what they think of trading conditions in 2013.


Also at the event, headline sponsors Pro-Align will be running an exciting demonstration of some of their latest technology in wheel alignment.

Afterwards, attendees are more than welcome to spend the afternoon exploring the museum.
