COVID and the Aussie 4×4 Scene

Simon Christie | 4WD TV
26 November 3:30-4:30 PM AEDT

We’ve all witnessed the rapid rise of 4×4 in recent years. With COVID limiting international travel and fuelling people’s passion for exploring the great outdoors, the local 4×4 scene is about to explode. On the back of fires, floods and COVID, Simon talks about how this increase in activity is critical to boost regional tourism and their local economies. He will share practical tips about how to set up 4×4 vehicles properly and offer advice for mechanics on how to capture the hearts and minds of the modern 4×4 customer.

Join Simon for a keynote that will be entertaining and informative in equal measure, and give you an edge in the Aussie 4×4 market.

Proudly brought to you by Narva and 4WD TV.
