The theme this year is 'Smart Working'

Service Dealer has announced that it's all systems go for the 2021 Conference & Awards - which will take place as an in-person event. We hope to be near to full capacity but the event will take place within regulations and of course, we will do what is right and appropriate at the time.

The theme for the Conference this year, that takes place on November 25th, will be 'Smart Working' - a subject that was all set to be tackled last year before the event, like so many others in 2020, was forced to cancel.

Duncan Murray-Clarke, owner of Service Dealer (pictured above at the 2019 Conference), said, "We are delighted to be announcing the return of our Conference and Awards today, which will be returning to its home at the Double Tree by Hilton Oxford Belfry. I want to stress we have been very careful with all our decisions and we will stage a safe and welcoming event.

"It was disappointing for all of us not to be able to go ahead as planned last November, so we can't wait to get back into the room with our readers, sponsors and guest speakers. We will be following the most up-to-date guidance to make sure the day is a safe, welcoming and valuable experience for all attendees.

"For all of us, these past 18 months have been unlike anything ever experienced. We have all had to adapt and find new ways of working. We’ve had to be smarter with our time, juggling home life and our businesses. We’ve also had to find alternative ways for communicating with our teams and our customers to ensure business continuity. Technology has played an important part in allowing us to continue to operate and to keep in touch.

"All of these things encapsulate the theme of the 2021 Service Dealer Conference and Awards - Smart Working. Our superb lineup of expert speakers will focus on how technology and communication tools can help us work more efficiently and ultimately more profitably."

The always-popular Dealer Awards will also return this November - albeit in a slightly modified format. Service Dealer will be introducing some new categories this year to reflect the incredible dedication, creative thinking and community spirit that dealers have displayed this past year and a half.
