Limited overnight accommodation remains.

Brett Mallon, Head of Unit at the National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (NaVCIS), will be joining us at The Belfry in October to speak on vehicle theft and the work that NaVCIS do to identify and prevent vehicle crime, including vehicle theft.

DCI Mallon is a serving police officer of 22 years and has an impressive breadth of experience across the police force, including in specialised and technical policing roles. He has been in his current role, leading the National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Unit, since 2019 and will be detailing the work the unit does, including their use of tracking technology to recover stolen vehicles.

DCI Mallon is just the first speaker we have revealed in an agenda which covers the biggest topics at the forefront of the credit hire industry right now. Keep an eye out for following emails as we continue to reveal the full agenda.

The timings for the daytime and evening events have also been released as registration for delegates will open at 10:45am on the day, with the conference due to start at 11:30am.

It is anticipated that the daytime conference will finish at 4:45pm. The evening event opening will open with a drinks reception at 6:30pm followed by a three course meal and entertainment until late.

CHO members are entitled to two complimentary tickets, included in your membership fee, with members also able to take advantage of additional tickets available at a heavily subsidised rate.

The Conference is such a valuable event; we come together to share stories, understand more detail of what may be coming down the tracks in future and, despite the competitive nature of our industry, to recognise that, at its heart, we work as one during current market conditions to supply hundreds of thousands of customers with access to mobility each year.
