David Bailey is professor of business economics at the Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham and a ‘UK in a Changing Europe’ senior fellow. He is also the author of the book, “Keeping the Wheels on the Road. UK Auto after Brexit,” and will speak on how Brexit is affecting the motor industry, as well as looking at the likely implications of a variety of future scenarios.

Later, Mike Jones, chairman of automotive business specialist ASE Global, will examine the state of the new and used car and van markets so far in 2019, and look at how they are set to develop over the remainder of the year and into 2020.

VRA chair Sam Watkins said: “AGMs can often be quite dry and unexciting affairs that are dominated by procedural matters and we decided that this year, we would try and add a new dimension by including sessions from some very high-quality speakers.”
