Dealer Support Live returns this year with a new location, a new format and a new attitude! Taking place on 17 October at Coventry's Ricoh Arena, the day will once again create an interactive experience that brings the magazine to life. Plans are well underway to make it everything the dealer community has asked for in a day that promises to provide clarity, guidance and applicable advice to dealers across the country.

You've given us a lot of feedback over the previous four years and we've not only listened, but we're putting it into practice; this year, Dealer Support Live separates the seminars from the exhibition, ensuring that delegates are able to attend the talks they wish to see, secure in the knowledge that they will also have plenty of time to browse the stands.

The new format will see four seminars running in the morning before the exhibition opens, while short and informative, interactive workshops will run throughout the afternoon.

Additionally, the ever-popular industry Q&A will run towards the end the day, while tea and coffee, lunch and networking drinks will also be provided.

We need your input!

We're currently in the process of piecing together the themes and topics that will prove most useful for you – the dealers – on the day. Click here to fill in our quick questionnaire!


Dealer success

The future is still uncertain; at last year's event we spoke a great deal about preparing for Brexit, but the deadline has come and gone and little has changed. This year, we're focusing on championing the success of the dealer in a variety of ways – from industry insight and managing change to CSR, wellbeing, innovative technology and beyond.

Our live event will continue to give dealers a balanced view of the current marketplace in order to help fool-proof their operations, preparing them for whatever the future might hold.

Open Q&A

Once again we will run a Q&A panel where delegates have the chance to direct questions, openly, to a group of key industry figures with a variety of specialities.


The exhibition will remain a key part of the day – in fact, we're increasing the focus on this by opening it after the first block of seminars is over, ensuring that guests and exhibitors get plenty of face-to-face time without sacrificing any other part of the event.
