Mike Smallbone, head of membership development at IAAF, commented: “Even as restrictions are now easing in the UK, we’re delighted to continue connecting and engaging with professionals in the industry through regular virtual events that are effective and convenient for our members.

“The pandemic has accelerated the move into online selling channels and the ‘digital’ share of the pie will only increase over time. Our latest Industry Briefing Bitesize session will feature insights and guidance from our member E-Motive on eBay, the most important online marketplace for the aftermarket.”
