“Remarketing Forum is key moment of the year”

As per annual tradition, the Remarketing Forum will be held on the first day of the Fleet Europe Summit – which this year takes place on 16 and 17 November in Dublin. Why should you attend the Remarketing Forum? We asked Luis Maria Perez Serrano (pictured), Head of Business Line Remarketing and Mobility Consulting (Mobility Division) at TÜV Süd, one of the event’s sponsors.

Check out the programme for the Fleet Europe Remarketing Forum and register to attend.

Why is the Remarketing Forum important for you?

Luis Maria Perez Serrano: “For us, the Remarketing Forum it is the key moment of the year to meet with all relevant stakeholders in the Remarketing industry and get a full update on current and future developments. We would never miss it!”

The Remarketing Forum focuses on the three trends disrupting the industry today: Electrification, Distribution and Digitisation. In your opinion, how can remarketers make the most of these trends?

“We should be humble enough to admit that these three trends are overwhelming to many of us. We have never seen so many profound changes happening in such a short term. So, I am very happy that this year’s Forum is shaped about these three key trends. This will give us the chance to get highly educated insights into how we can better integrate these trends into our businesses.”

“Nobody has all the answers, but I would like to finish my answer with a question of my own – a provocative question one, inviting self reflection: How will an agent (former dealer) manage the trade-in of an electric vehicle in exchange of a new car which has been sold online?”  

What will attendees learn at the Remarketing Forum? In other words: why should they attend?

“To increase their understanding of the key factors for keeping successful on this business in the future. And also because it is a perfect place to do business!”

Finally, can you tell us a bit about your own upcoming contribution to the Remarketing Forum?

“On this occasion, we would like to share some thoughts around how our business will be affected by the new distribution models. The dealership distribution model has been extremely successful for decades, and it is important that we spend some time on understanding how the new agency model will affect the remarketing of used cars in the future.”

“The new model will bring along a lot of new opportunities, but certainly it will also bring quite a few challenges. We would like to participate in this discussion and overall contribute to a better understanding in order to help the industry make use of all the potential benefits.”
