VRA kicks off 2020 meeting programme with focus on remarketing fundamentals
Remarketing fundamentals for 2020 are to come under the spotlight at the Vehicle Remarketing Association’s first meeting of the year, providing insight into the coming 12 months.
Taking place on 29 January at Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire, the event will feature key presentations including from Martin Potter, managing director, at Aston Barclay, who will explore auction sector forecasts for 2020 – looking at the general used car and van markets, which vehicles will be in demand, the supply situation and how much stock dealers will be holding.
Nick Chadaway, managing director of DMN Logistics, will look at how to get the most out of vehicle logistics in 2020 – including what demand for logistics services will be like, which services will be most popular and how to make most efficient use of logistics services.
Also, Nick Reisinger, national sales manager of DEKRA, will speak on the latest thinking in vehicle inspections for 2020 – examining how vehicle inspections are developing, what demand for services will be like and how to maximise the effectiveness of vehicle inspection services.
Finally, Jayson Whittington, chief editor of Glass’s Guide, will provide a general overview of current new and used car and van market trends and will also take a look at how these areas are likely to develop over the next few months.
VRA chair Sam Watkins said: “We have an extensive programme of meetings planned for 2020 where members will receive essential briefings on the remarketing sector and be able to plug into the unrivalled expertise the organisation offers.
“We’re looking forward to kicking off 2020 at Bruntingthorpe with what promise to be four excellent presentations and are especially pleased to welcome the several new members that have joined the VRA in recent weeks.”
