The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) has announced its next Industry Briefing session will welcome a limited number of members.
It is hoped, this will provide the opportunity for safe networking as well as continuing with the option to ‘tune in’ virtually.
Headed up by Head of Membership Development, Mike Smallbone, the event will be held on 12th October at Autotech Group’s headquarters and training facility in Milton Keynes. It will take place at 10.00 until 11.30am, with those in attendance invited to stay for the chance to network over lunch.
As required, the event will adhere to the recommended social distancing guidelines to maximise the safety of members.
The guest speaker will be Lee Colman from SBD Automotive, who will delve deeper into the issues affecting the automotive aftermarket, including fast-moving technologies, complex markets and a maze of new risks.
Members will also hear from cyber security expert, Francis West, who will give an overview on the threats around the topic, as well as offering best practice on how aftermarket companies can safeguard their business.
Mike said: “Over the past year we’ve seen the automotive aftermarket go above and beyond to ensure customers continue to receive the high level of service and reliability that our industry is renowned for, and we’re proud to have played a role in this by communicating the latest trending topics virtually with our digital IAAF Industry Briefing Bitesize sessions.
“However, it’s great to get back to safe face-to-face networking with of course, an acceptable number of attendees, and we’re delighted to welcome back members once again to our latest session and look forward to what is sure to be an insightful and informative morning.”
The event is free of charge and exclusive to all IAAF members. Those who are unable to attend can still register to ‘tune in’ to the briefing via a livestream, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, with details to be announced closer to the date.
