CAR Dealer Magazine’s phenomenal conference and expo CDX is back, and it’ll be taking over the halls of the new Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre on Wednesday, June 12, 2019.
The automotive industry is under more pressure now than it has been for a long time – with a range of financial and political factors at play. Even when the country was in economic depression, at least there were signs that recovery was on the way, whereas today all we know is that beyond March 29, 2019 an uncertain post- Brexit future beckons.
It’s easy to only see the doom and gloom, or focus purely on your own business, but it’s never been more important to join us at CDX to understand where the market is going.
Europe’s largest conference for car dealers offers an unrivalled expo that can help your business cater better for clients and ultimately make more money. It also offers an opportunity to connect with others in the sector, hear their views and generate ideas to enhance your dealership.
Once again we will be hosting a range of workshops that will educate and inform, hosted in forums within the expo floor this time, with each forum focusing on a different key theme.
Here, CDX delegates will be able to listen to case studies, understand new techniques and hear from top speakers in the industry.
This year’s event in Manchester was packed full of talks, panels and suppliers all offering fantastic guidance and exciting new products – and CDX 2019 promises to be even better!
Founder of Car Dealer Magazine James Baggott said: ‘There’s so much work that goes into CDX each year from everyone involved, so seeing it come together on the day is always incredible.
‘Both at CDX 2018 and since, the team have been speaking to those in the industry about their struggles and concerns, giving us some great plans for next summer’s event in Farnborough.
‘It’s incredibly tough out there right now for some dealers and allowing time to talk as an industry is essential.’
The Car Dealer Magazine Live Stage will feature a range of fresh topics in 2019. Our line-up of panellists and keynote speakers will be sharing their insight into the future of the industry and advice on effective ways to expand your business.
We will be looking at how changing powertrains are affecting car sales, changing retail trends, how Brexit will hit the automotive industry and more.
Car Dealer Magazine editor Rebecca Chaplin added: ‘It’s exciting to see plans coming together for CDX 2019. With so many important changes affecting the motor industry, our Live Stage will be the perfect forum to hear top dealer and industry speakers’ thoughts on this.
‘With a range of brilliant workshops to complement these sessions, no dealer will leave without exciting new ideas to take home to their business! We hope as many dealers as possible will attend.’
