The Vehicle Remarketing Association (VRA) has announced two major speakers for its AGM.
The first, speaking about how Brexit is affecting the motor industry, will be David Bailey. He is professor of business economics at the Birmingham Business School, a UK in a Changing Europe senior fellow, and author of the book Keeping the Wheels on the Road.
Secondly, 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.
The VRA AGM will take place at BCA Birmingham on 10 July.
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.
"We are very, very pleased to have both Dave and Mike on board for the event. The areas on which they are experts are of direct and crucial relevance to VRA members, and we are sure that they will prompt interesting and lively debate."
