How is your September going? Want to do even better?

Then tune in to this Auto Retail Live webinar to get the critical insight to hit your September targets, grow your profitability and maintain impetus for the remainder of 2020.

Due to the premature end to March sales, this September will be the most important month of 2020, both for the sale of new vehicles and maximising the part exchanges to fuel your used car sales.

Held in association with Mazepoint, our next webinar will have Daksh Gupta, CEO of Marshall Motors, John O’Hanlon, founder of Waylands, Ian Plummer, Auto Trader commercial director and Tracy Ellam, Mazepoint commercial director, all available online to answer your questions and help improve your retail performance.

The focus for this webinar will be new car sales, how to hit September’s targets without resorting to pre-registration, will the pent-up demand continue, how to spot new opportunities within your own data and how the rest of 2020 will shape up.


Key topics for discussion include:

  • The latest on September new car registrations
  • Identifying business opportunities in your data
  • Consumer demand outlook
  • How to deal with OEM targets and pressures
  • Used car opportunities

Over 30 minutes we’ll give you practical advice and expert opinion on how using data within your business can help you hit your September targets – from some of the most successful operators in the auto retail industry.
