Wendy Williamson, chief executive of the Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation.

Taking place at the Double Tree by Hilton, Milton Keynes, on 7 December 2017, the conference will look at the complexities of the Brexit negotiations and explore how the Brexit decision will affect the UK automotive aftermarket.

With speakers signed up from across the industry, the conference will also examine key industry topics such as connected cars, the petrol and diesel car ban in 2040, how motor sport influences the aftermarket, challenges of running a garage in 2017, technological threats facing the sector and, the latest activity from within the EU.

Conference delegates will also be given exclusive access into the aftermarket’s contribution to the UK economy; how the distribution structure is consolidating and its prospects for the future, as well as looking at how trends in car ownership are changing.
