IAAF announces details of 2019’s first Industry Briefing session

The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) has announced that it will be hosting its first Industry Briefing of 2019 at Stadium MK, home of EFL League Two side MK Dons, in Milton Keynes on Thursday 21 March.

Sponsored by industry recruitment specialists Autotech Recruit and again steered by Head of Membership Development Mike Smallbone, the session will take place in the venue’s Performance Suite, as members will be brought up to speed with the latest developments across the aftermarket within the past few months, with the opportunity to hear from some of the industry’s top guest speakers.

GiPA’s Quentin Le Hetet will be leading the morning’s proceedings with a discussion entitled ‘What does the next 5 years hold for the independent aftermarket?’, building on his speech delivered at the IAAF Conference in December.

Also invited to speak is Ben Stockton, from new IAAF member Our Virtual Academy, who will be addressing attendees on upskilling vehicle technicians using video technology to enhance their knowledge and expertise, with the opportunity for IAAF members to potentially engage.

Smallbone will also be giving an update on the Your Car Your Choice campaign, as well as sharing the latest news on IAAF’s activity including Type Approval, the Connected Car and this year’s IAAF Golf Day events in conjunction with automotive industry charity BEN.

Smallbone said: “After a high number of new sign-ups to IAAF’s membership over the past 12 months, we’re relishing the prospect of meeting with our new members and hearing their industry viewpoint. As this is the first Industry Briefing Session since the Conference, we’re very much looking forward to giving aftermarket businesses further opportunity to reunite and network.

“We’re delighted to welcome back seasoned IAAF speaker Quentin, and Ben will no doubt give our members fascinating insight into the latest virtual technology that will enable more technicians to be equipped with the skills this industry needs more of.”

There will be networking and coffee available from 9.00am, with the session promptly starting at 10.00am before finishing at 1.00 pm with lunch.

A further three meetings will be held and announced throughout the year, with details of the next meeting to follow in due course.

Places are limited and therefore IAAF is advising members to book early to avoid disappointment by emailing Ann Silvester at anns@iaaf.co.uk.
