Who's exhibiting at Automotive Management LIVE?Back
Always a major draw at Automotive Management Live is the exhibitors’ hall where more than xx leading suppliers and industry organisations will be on hand to discuss latest products and services.
Enabling dealers to discover the latest developments in the market today and compare and contrast products under one roof in one day, Automotive Management Live takes place on 8 November at Birmingham’s NEC.
Free for dealer and manufacturer delegates by prior booking, the event includes best practice sessions exploring pressing topics from latest website developments to online car retailing. A series of sessions in the insight theatre sees expert speakers focus on people and how automotive retail will evolve over the next decade.
Established four years ago, lead generation company Chameleon has worked with several manufacturers and numerous dealer groups and will launch its new events package at the show. The ‘Chameleon Complete Package’ provides dealers with extensive event support, and according to director Mike Beresford, dealers just need to dress the showroom, ensure staff are on hand and refreshments are available whilst Chameleon handles everything else.
Aftersales solutions provider EMaC, now in its third year of supporting the event, will be promoting its ‘Drive Now, Pay Later’ platform, launched in June. The flexible monthly instalment plan, up to 12 months, spreads the cost of vehicle related repair bills and accessories.
Commented sales director Adrian Willard: “We’ve had a tremendous response from our dealer partners, significant numbers of which have already signed up for the product and we are in the early stages of a substantial onboarding and roll out process.”
Launched earlier this year, EMaC’s ‘Self-Serve’ facility, which enables dealer and OEM customers to buy a service plan online, will also be featured on the stand.
Attending the show for the second year running, Trustpilot will be highlighting the importance of customer reviews and brand reputation. Trustpilot is one of the world’s largest independent consumer review platforms with almost 50 million reviews and more than 240,000 businesses reviewed worldwide.
Using virtual reality (VR) in the event’s Future Zone, CDK Global’s Connected Workshop solution, which incorporates everything a dealer needs to take their workshop digital and stay connected to their customers during their aftersales experience, will be launched. CDK’s dealer management platform, Autoline Drive, specifically designed for the unique demands of automotive dealers, will be showcased on its stand.
Highlighting its partnership with enquiryMAX, the first partner to join its new CDK Partner Program, the team will show how this collaboration links its Rev 8 Dealer Management system with the enquiryMAX showroom solution.
The third consecutive year for Diamondbrite manufacturers Jewelultra at Automotive Management Live, this year the company launches its new Online Training Programme. Designed to help dealers more successfully close sales of the Diamondbrite paint and fabric protection system, the bespoke portal enables retailer and dealership staff to develop and refine valuable selling skills, giving them confidence to present the products to customers and generate crucial additional income.
The company will also display its new Alloy Wheel Protectors, which protect wheels from damage from hitting kerbs and pot holes.
Added Boseley: “We launched the alloy wheel protectors in August and to combat the pothole situation. Dealers gave us feedback that they received a lot of part exchange vehicles with damaged alloys. We have had a very positive reaction so far.”
Many exhibitors will also be running competitions and will have freebies and goodie bags on their stands.
