The event draws top executives from UK and European finance and leasing companies and sets out to look at the key tasks that lie ahead for a market being transformed by technological change.

The International Auto Finance Network was set up by online publishing house, Asset Finance International and respected academic Colin Tourick. The purpose of the network is to give leaders in the auto finance industry a forum in which to meet and consider the challenges and opportunities faced by the industry.

Talking about the 2015 event, organiser Edward Peck from Asset Finance International said, "It would be an understatement to say that the title for this event, Innovation in the auto finance industry: technology, big data and business improvement is a hugely important subject area for the members of the International Auto Finance Network. Clearly the potential for innovative technology to unlock the power of big data could and should enable finance companies and leasing businesses to transform themselves."

DRIVE Sponsors International Auto Finance Network ConferenceThe agenda for the Spring 2015 event will see DRIVE's Product Director Martin Drake tackling Current Developments in Total Mobility, while Keith Allen, Managing Director, ARI Fleet UK will be talking about Fleet leasing and rising to the challenge of ever‐increasing customer expectations. Other highlights include Graham Wheeler, CEO of Volkswagen Financial Services who will be looking at how car sales and retail motor finance will change in response to changing customer behaviour. Dr Paul Russell, Experian's director of analytics is examining Big Data and Google's Senior Industry Head Automotive, Hugh Dickerson, will talk about how the internet will revolutionise automotive.

Commenting on his role in proceedings, Martin Drake said, "The great thing about the agenda for this year's International Auto Finance Network event is it brings to life so many of the things we have been talking about and quietly doing behind the scenes at DRIVE for years.
"Rather than being great storage silos of troublesome and inaccessible data, the IT systems of vehicle leasing companies, or rather the information that they contain, can become the greatest asset. Buy connecting the dots, leasing companies can demonstrate to their fleet customers.
