IAAF CONFERENCE: WILLIAMSON URGES CHANGE

IAAF Chief Exec Wendy Williamson has opened the annual conference under the title ‘How to Survive and Thrive Post Brexit’.

“As an ardent remainer, I spent weeks being shocked about the result of the referendum” said Williamson. “However, as the people in the corridors of power are fond of saying: ‘Brexit means Brexit’ and we must respect the decision and get on with it”.

Her introduction included a warning about the speed that VMs are developing fully autonomous cars and trucks. “Last year, I said that the greatest threat was the connected car… Well, now I think I may have been wrong” Williamson said, before showing short promotional films from Ford and Volvo Trucks, adding that these new developments are not nieche high-value vehicles, but they are from mainstream manufacturers, and that the aftermarket must adapt accordingly.

The conference is in progress at the time of writing, with presentations from Frost and Sullivan and Boswell Aftermarket underway.
