Announcing the Cox Automotive Keynote Session Feature Panel at AADA 2024: “Automotive Retail – The Next 5 Years”

The Australian automotive market is undergoing significant transformation, and the 2024 AADA Convention & Expo is set to tackle these changes head-on. We are pleased to announce the Cox Automotive Keynote Session Feature Panel titled, “Automotive Retail – The Next 5 Years,” which promises to be a highlight of this year’s event.

The Australian automotive market is a highly competitive arena with over 70 car makers vying for a share of approximately 1.2 million new car sales annually. This vibrant ecosystem is sustained by the new car franchised network, which not only delivers over 2 million new and used vehicle sales but also completes 48 million car services each year. This network employs 61,000 people and trains nearly 6,000 apprentices, contributing a significant $18.6 billion to the national economy.

As we look to the future, automotive retail is facing seismic shifts driven by a variety of forces:

Decarbonisation: The push towards sustainability is accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles and greener technologies.
Digitisation: Digital transformation is revolutionising how vehicles are sold, serviced, and experienced.
Rationalisation: Market consolidation is leading to more streamlined operations and business models.
Disintermediation: Traditional dealership models are being challenged by direct-to-consumer sales and online platforms.
Rise of China: The influence of Chinese manufacturers is reshaping global automotive markets.

Join us for a compelling discussion on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the automotive industry. Our esteemed panel will provide insights into industry trends, policy directions, and what the next five years might hold.

Moderator: James Voortman, CEO, AADA
Panel Members: Samantha Johnson, CEO, EV Council, Jack Hobbs, VP, Toyota Motor Corporation Australia, Stephen Lester, CEO, Cox Automotive Australia, Stephen Moir, CEO, MTA-WA, and Tim Reuss, CEO, CADA (Canada)

This session will delve into the critical issues facing automotive retail and offer a platform for thought-provoking discussions. Whether you are an industry veteran or new to the automotive sector, this panel promises valuable insights and actionable takeaways.
