Originally founded in 2006, CarGurus launched its online shopping platform in the UK in December 2015 and is the only online car-buying service to consolidate and analyse prices on local car listings in real-time.
CDX16 will be held on Tuesday, May 24 at Silverstone in Northamptonshire and, after building strong, new partnerships at last year’s event, the company has decided to get involved in 2016.
The firm told us: ‘After launching our car-shopping platform in the UK this past December, the response from consumers and dealerships has been tremendous. CDX16 gives our team a unique opportunity to connect with the many dealers we are already working with and introduce CarGurus to new, prospective dealers that might wish to list their stock on our site.
‘We also see CDX as an opportunity to learn from other progressive thinkers and leaders in the industry: the more we learn, the better we can deliver value for our customers.
‘We attended CDX last year as we were developing our plans for CarGurus UK launch. Not only did we learn a lot but many of the strongest partnerships and relationships we have established in the UK were born from that experience. In typical Car Dealer Magazine fashion, the event was perfectly executed and we found it extremely worthwhile.’
When asked what they expect to achieve at CDX16, the company told us: ‘We aim to meet with as many dealers as we can to demonstrate what makes CarGurus different than other shopping platforms, and how we are able to drive extraordinary results for our dealers. CarGurus will be rolling out some new dealer offerings this Spring, which we are excited to share at CDX.
‘We also intend to have some fun, just as we do at all the Car Dealer Magazine events we’ve participated in!’
