New and used car market in 2021 under focus in VRA webinar

Three of the UK’s leading used car valuation experts will speak at the Vehicle Remarketing Association (VRA)’s second 2021 Outlook Seminar, covering the new and used car markets for 2021.

The VRA’s 30-minute webinar on 5 November will cover the new and used car markets for 2021

Derren Martin, head of UK valuations at Cap HPI, Rupert Pontin, director of insight at Cazana, and Jayson Whittington, chief car editor at Glass’s, will provide insight and answer questions at the 30-minute webinar on 5 November.

It’s the latest in series of briefing events that the VRA is holding over the coming weeks that are open to anyone who works in the motor industry and are designed to provide a compact but expert summary of next year’s prospects in key areas of remarketing.

VRA chair Sam Watkins said the first of the Outlook Seminars, which was held last week and saw MHA Consulting’s Steve Freeman cover possible coronavirus scenarios in 2021, had been very well received.

She explained: “There is little doubt that next year is going to be difficult in all kinds of ways and there is a genuine thirst throughout the remarketing sector for credible information and guidance.

“I think everyone realises that vehicle valuations over the next year could be especially tricky with so many unpredictable factors potentially affecting the market and we are pleased to have three of the most knowledgeable people in the industry taking part in this forthcoming webinar.”

Watkins added that the VRA Outlook Series was taking place of the VRA Seminar, which normally takes place every November but had proven impossible to hold in the current environment.

“One of the good things about our normal seminar is that it is open to anyone who works in the motor industry and we have decided to continue this offer into the 2021 Outlook Seminars. It is not just for VRA members.”
