Webinar: European Car Distribution Handbook 2018

Back in 2014, we predicted that, against a backdrop of economic and behavioural pressures on dealers, in order to maintain dealer profitability there would need to be a reduction in the number of dealers across Europe of around 25% by 2020. Whilst such a network reduction would be drastic, and the prediction may have been slightly overstated, with a reduction since 2014 of just 3.2% in the number of main dealers, sufficient reductions in dealer numbers are unlikely to happen in a reasonable timeframe. Given the increasing need for alternative formats to act as both marketing exercises, and as sales and service points, there will need to radical changes in the typical dealer business model to remain profitable as part of such a large network in the coming years.

To explore the key topic of how franchised dealer networks have evolved, and continue to evolve, we will be hosting a short webinar highlighting recent findings from the 2018 edition of the European Car Distribution Handbook.

In this webinar we will delve into high level trends in European franchised dealer networks for both sales and aftersales, with analysis and commentary from the 2018 edition of the European Car Distribution Handbook, covering topics such as:
• General trends in sales and service networks across Europe
• How franchised networks across different markets and regions are changing in recent years
• Comparisons of franchised networks for different brands and segments across Europe, looking at the relative ‘winners’ and ‘losers’
• What needs to happen in the future to safeguard brand and dealer profitability in an ever changing world

This webinar will take place on Tuesday 11th December at 10am UK time, 11am CET, and is only available to ICDP members. There is no charge for attending this webinar. To book your place simply send Jane Trace an email (projectoffice@icdp.net) and she will forward an official WebEx invite to you.
