About Driving Digital 2022

Until now, Driving Digital has always been held in Birmingham, the “second city”, (regularly disputed by those from Manchester and Leeds!).

This year, we’ve moved down to London, not only for the convenience of being in town the same night as the AM awards but also to take advantage of the excellent venue that is Central Hall.

Located in the heart of Westminster, Central Hall was the first-ever meeting place of the United Nations. It has also welcomed some of the best-known public figures in the world including Winnie Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and Mikhail Gorbachev.

The NFDA and JudgeService are delighted to welcome speakers from across the automotive industry to this historic meeting place where our line-up of fantastic speakers will enlighten us on where we are at today and what is coming next in our ever-changing working landscape.

In 2022, our headline speakers are Eddie Hawthorne from Arnold Clark, and Kim Costello from Pendragon PLC.

Presenting from the retailers’ perspective, back by popular demand, Eddie will be discussing how Arnold Clark’s journey over the last two and a half years has been impacted by the pandemic, how they reacted to changes digitally, and their plans going forward.

Brand new to our panel, the highly successful Chief Marketing Officer of Pendragon – Kim Costello, will be talking about how dealers can prepare themselves for the strong economic and social tailwinds facing the sector. Plus, the contrast between the US and UK used vehicle markets.

We can also look forward to returning speakers from Auto Trader and JudgeService.
