On Wednesday 9th October 2019, we attended the Motor Trader Independent Dealer Awards 2019 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry where we are pleased to announce that Romans International were awarded with the highly coveted “Independent Dealer of the Year – Premium Cars” as well as the “Social Media Campaign of the Year”. The awards were hosted by BBC Sports and breakfast host presenter Dan Walker and we were delighted to come away with 2 awards at a fantastic event amongst our peers in the industry. Motor Trader is one of the industry leading UK automotive publications and the longest running magazine for car dealers, manufacturers and industry professionals.
Earlier in the day Motor Trader held the Motor Trader Summit 2019, an industry event themed around “Boosting Dealer Profitability in 2020” and Romans International were invited to do a 30 minute presentation on “Building a successful Social Media Following in 2020”. Although this was a first for Romans doing this kind of presentation we felt it was a good opportunity to share our passion and knowledge for social media with our peers. Social media has played a big part in expanding the reach of our business online and keeping our customers up to date with the latest goings-on at the showroom. We’re proud of both Tom Jaconelli, one of our directors, and Nesbert Musuwo, our marketing manager, who received excellent feedback for their presentation having provided practical insights into how other dealerships can benefit from social media.
All in all it was a truly memorable day and night, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff for their continued hard work and dedication, all our customers for their continued business as well as all our followers for their continued interest and support.
