The 2024 AADA Convention & Expo is just around the corner, and our feature panel within the Cox Automotive Keynote Session, “Automotive Retail – The Next 5 Years,” is set to be a highlight of the entire event.

The Australian automotive market is buzzing with over 70 car makers competing for approximately 1.2 million new car sales annually. This vibrant ecosystem, supported by the new car franchised network, generates over 2 million new and used vehicle sales and completes a staggering 48 million car services each year. This industry powerhouse employs 61,000 people, trains nearly 6,000 apprentices, and contributes a whopping $18.6 billion to the national economy.

As we gear up for the future, automotive retail is on the cusp of transformative changes driven by key trends:

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

Join us for an insightful discussion on these trends and their impact on the automotive industry. Our expert panel will explore the challenges and opportunities ahead, offering valuable perspectives on what the next five years might hold.
