Industry urged to 'brace for change' at latest IAAF briefing

Published:  27 March, 2018

'Sweeping change’ was the focus at the most recent Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) industry briefing, held at Phocas Business Intelligence Software in Coventry on 15 March.

All the latest industry developments were covered by IAAF Membership Development Manager Mike Smallbone.

Guest speakers included Nona Bowkis from Lawgistics discussing General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into effect on 25 May, and Steve Carter from Train4auto Consultancy, addressing how hybrid and electric vehicles as well as hydrogen fuel-cell technology will revolutionise the future.

Mike Smallbone said: “It was clear our members hugely benefitted from learning more about GDPR and electric vehicle technology, and the impact both will have on them personally and as part of the aftermarket.

“These briefings are gathering more momentum as we go on; they’re providing real value to members in terms of industry insight. We are expecting another highly engaging session and large turnout at the next briefing.”

The next meeting will be hosted by The Turbo Guy in Glasgow on 17 May. IAAF is advising members to book early to avoid disappointment by emailing Ann Silvester at anns@iaaf.co.uk.
