EV and the wholesaler

Electric Vehicle (EV) technology is in the news and, as you’ll see from the programme below, for this Forum your presentations will focus on how the wholesaler business could benefit.

The Forum is located close to the UK’s Premier Low Carbon Vehicle Event, LCV Cenex at Millbrook in Bedfordshire, and you may find it convenient to attend after the Forum.
