  • I get new customers and then lose them.
  • I feel I need to explore new markets.
  • I am concerned about my margin decreasing.

Afternoon: Exhibition

Along with the business sessions, the annual exhibition forms the heart of our Conference. Part of our job as a dealer group is to help make new markets accessible to our dealers and in order to make that happen, we need to help you understand the new products that are driving change. The best way to do that is to bring you face to face with the vendors themselves!

Afternoon: Dealers Live!

The afternoon will finish with a short Q&A session with some of our members who have started making inroads into removing their paint points - it’s inspirational stuff, and well worth a listen!
More details to follow soon.
