On Tuesday 23rd May, some of our consultants made the journey to Silverstone to attend The Car Conference and Automotive Expo 2017. CDX is the UK's largest automotive expo, brought to you by the publishers of Car Dealer Magazine.
This was our 2nd year of attending the expo, and we have always found it a worthwhile experience, letting us put faces to names, catch up with existing clients and gain some new ones.
Sharron Spall, one of our Regional Managers said "Everyone was in good spirits and it extended our knowledge even further on what other automotive suppliers and offering to our clients in terms of digital marketing, finance options, warranty solutions to name a few. We are looking forward to what 2 days in Manchester will bring for the event next year."
Jade Lambert who is area manager for Wales and the South West attended CDX for the first time with us this year said she found the talks very helpful. "Being able to understand and expand my knowledge of the trade and the issues my clients are currently facing is massively important to me and the role I play in their recruitment processes. I came away from the experience with a better grasp on what my clients will be seeking from myself in the coming months and some really interesting talking points that will help me to strengthen rapport and hopefully gain even more business"
We are looking forward to attending again next year, which promises to be bigger and better than ever with the event moving to central Manchester.
We would like to thank Car Dealer Magazine for putting on a great expo, and Desira Great Yarmouth for kindly lending us a van, making transporting our stand to the expo a lot easier!
