AM is launching a fully functioning virtual exhibition version of our annual Automotive Management Live event to enable dealers and OEMs to hear the latest insights and best practice plus networ with their industry peers. 

Coronovirus restrictions have prevented us from holding the annual Automotive Management Live show at the NEC Birmingham. So we've invested heavily in an amazing, interactive, online exhibition platform that will let us deliver its usual fantastic range of expert presenters striaght to AM Live Virtual-regstired attendees' PCs or iPads. 

It will offer delegates a host of features and benetifts. We've expanded AM Live Virtual to run over two FULL days - Wednesday, 20 January and Thursday, 21 January - when attendees will be able to meet in the virtual networking lounges, watch presentations designed to inspire and innovate, can quiz the expert presenters in their live Q&A sessions, and can arrange private virtual meetings without needing to go anywhere. 

It's dissapointing we can't all gather at the NEC as usual but AM Live Virtual allows us all to get precisely the same experience without leaving the dealership or office. It's going to be a fantastic event - the capabilities of the platform we're using are mind-blowing," said AM editor Tim Rose. "It's going to be a fun and fascinating two days. I hope to see you there."

AM Live Virtual will feature 20 seminar sessions offereing visitors insight, advice and guidance to improve their strategic planning and their day-to-day operations. And the supplier partners will showcase their latests products and services for automotive managers on enhanced interactive stads with video, live chat and demonstrations of new technology. 

All of the presenters in the digital and retail sessions at Automotive Management Live Virtual will be joined by a dealer client to provide a real life prespective on the topic. 

And all the insight-packed presentations remain viewabe after AM Live Virtual ends for another 28 days, so attendees can simply log in again to re-watch on demand. 

Each day will begin with AM interviewing the chief executive of a major AM100 motor retailer to learn how they're planning to drive their business forward in 2021. 

There will be four strategic keynote sessions which will examine the economic outlook, property managemnet, dealer sustainability and practical strategies for leadership and motiviation in a dispersed, remote, socially distanced world.

The six digital sessions at AM Live Virtual will include best practices in video, social media marketing, CRM and more. 

In addition, there will be six retail sessions covering subjects such as aftersales effciency, effective use of technology, used car sales efficiency, motor finance and more. 

All the presenters will be revealed in the coming weeks.
