CarGurus, the UK's fastest growing automotive marketplace(1), has announced that their second annual Navigate automotive conference will take place virtually on the 26th and 27th October. Navigate 2020 is designed to help educate automotive professionals on how to adapt to the rapidly changing automotive retail landscape, and will feature expert speakers from both automotive and technology sectors. The conference follows on the success of last year's inaugural Navigate, which drew hundreds of attendees from the US, UK and Canada.
Sam Zales, President and COO of CarGurus said: "Last year's successful debut of CarGurus' Navigate conference proved that dealerships are eager to learn new ways to improve their business, and they see tremendous value in getting insight and advice from inside and outside their industry.
"This event is about learning and engaging on the issues that are currently impacting automotive retail and exploring new strategies for success from a range of perspectives. While the format will be virtual this year due to COVID-19, we are just as excited about the agenda we have planned."
Aside from learning to develop skills and tactics to improve dealership performance, attendees can expect to explore new strategies for adapting to a rapidly-changing consumer climate. In addition, they'll learn from tech experts outside the auto industry and ignite their personal and professional growth.
Also new for 2020 is the introduction of a charity auction in aid of Ben, the charity dedicated to supporting the people of the automotive industry. In addition to raising money for Ben at a time when their support is critical to so many in the automotive industry, the auction also allows participants to bid on some truly unique items from one-of-a-kind artwork, to memorabilia and luxury gifts.
For 2020, Navigate is free and open to all dealers. For a full agenda, additional details of everything taking place at Navigate or to register for your free place, visit: https://events.cargurus.com/navigate.

How CarGurus Works:
CarGurus helps car shoppers search local car listings and quickly find great deals from top rated dealers. Every day, the company analyses millions of data points on hundreds of thousands of UK car listings to calculate each car's Instant Market Value (IMV) or fair retail price. This data is used in combination with dealership ratings from other shoppers to rank and rate available cars results based on the quality of the deal: Great, Good, Fair, High or Overpriced. The site also provides transparency on how long the car has been on the forecourt and if it's had a price drop. Consumers can contact dealers directly.
