Coronavirus explored in next IAAF briefing

Published:  13 July, 2020

The ongoing effect of Coronavirus and the impact of the MOT extension will be among the topics discussed during the next IAAF Zoom-based ‘Industry Briefing Bitsize’ next week.

The next session will be hosted by IAAF Head of Membership Development Mike Smallbone on Thursday 23 July, 10am - 11.30am.

GiPA’s Quentin Le Hetet will be the guest speaker, looking at how the six-month MOT extension has changed MOT seasonality; the ageing car parc and how the aftermarket can capitalise on this. He will also examine vehicle electrification and finally the change in car usage, with more people relying on their personal vehicle to travel, choosing to avoid public transport in a bid to maximise health and safety measures.

Hannah Lyon-Wall, director at Financial & Credit Insurance Services Limited) (FinCred IS), will also be speaking about trade credit risks in a COVID-19 world.

There will also be an update on the latest IAAF activity from IAAF Chief Executive Wendy Williamson.

Commenting on the upcoming session, Wendy said: “The automotive aftermarket is a great example of how an industry has successfully managed during the coronavirus pandemic. It’s important that we continue to communicate key messages and advice to ensure the industry can make the necessary changes to meet demand for new products and services by constantly adapting and evolving.”
