Digital Dealer Peer Networking Roundtables
Just like a mini 20 group, work with your dealership peers to blow open the doors to new ideas and proven best practices. Meet with other dealers and managers from outside your market and discuss your biggest challenges. Pick each other’s brains to see what works… and what doesn’t. Compare metrics and results. Discuss your most valuable vendors, and do it at tables of 10 with peers from similar sized operations. This marquis event will be held on the first day of the conference, and will not only provide ideas to improve your operation but will also give you additional insight to choose the sessions you will attend and decide which solutions providers you should meet with in the Digital Dealer Exhibit Hall. Most likely, you will stay in touch with your peer for years to come, continuing to share and compare what you’re doing, what’s working and what to avoid.
For dealership attendees only.
