Less than a month until BVRLA's Industry Conference

Release Date: 
11/11/2016
With three weeks to go until the BVRLA’s seventh annual Industry Conference, the association is pleased to confirm the final agenda for the day.
 
Two-thirds of tickets have already been sold for the event, which takes place on 1 December and is sponsored by Jaguar Land Rover, cap hpi and Black Horse.
 
The Conference will be held at the National Conference Centre in the West Midlands and offers a great opportunity to network and debate key issues.
 
“This year’s Industry Conference will have something for everyone,” said BVRLA Chief Executive Gerry Keaney. “It comes at the perfect time, just one week after the Autumn Statement, and we’ve assembled a diverse line-up of expert speakers who will discuss the biggest issues facing our industry.”
 
Topics on the agenda include Brexit, the Grey Fleet, emissions and business car taxation, and there will be sessions on residual values and future mobility models. As well as an update on BVRLA activities and priorities, the day will feature presentations from Jaguar Land Rover and Lloyds Bank economist David Muir.
 
Another key focus for the day will be personal leasing. Recent BVRLA research has found that personal leasing continues to grow in popularity. Delegates will hear from Frost & Sullivan mobility consultant Graeme Bannister, Andrew Mee from cap hpi and David Blackmore from Fleet Alliance, and learn what is driving this growth, and how the industry can meet the needs of this new type of customer.
 
The event is not restricted to BVRLA members. Anyone in the fleet industry may attend – including contract hire and leasing suppliers, daily rental companies, fleet management and fleet servicing providers, fleet software suppliers, licence checking companies, fuel card providers and mileage capture specialists.
