“Who should attend? Any and all managers, decision makers, and personnel that are involved in improving the dealership’s business should attend. There is still so much skepticism and lack of involvement from the decision-makers about the Internet and how it can be used more effectively to improve opportunities for each department and reduce expenses. This event is a real eye-opener! Attendance by the department heads, dealer principals and decision makers would help them ‘get it’ and allow for business growth in all departments.”

“I am always very edified and encouraged by attending the Digital Dealer conferences. Of all the automotive conferences I have attended in my short time in the automotive world, this one always proves to be the most substantial in content. The reason for that, I believe, can be found in its attempt (and success) to be relevant to the everyday life of the owner and employees of the dealership.” -

“It was one of the best conferences I have ever attended!!” - 
Shannon W
, Internet Director
, Wichita, KS

“I learned a long time ago that ‘all the things that are important in life are the things I learned after I knew it all.’ The Digital Dealer conference never fails to deliver on this promise. The hardest thing about the conference is to choose the best practices to put in place. It is, of course, impossible to implement all the things you see and learn, so narrowing it down is the hardest part because there is so much good stuff. Odds are you will not find the ‘magic bullet,’ but you will learn how to implement a strategy that will improve your business’ position. Just a note to the dealer principals out there: don’t just send your ‘internet guy.’ Go with him. You will be glad you did.” - AJ M, Director Digital Marketing, New Britain, CT

“Overall conference was very good especially since it was the first digital one I have attended.”
 - Amy D
, Sales Manager
, Lima, OH

“Instead of trying to guess what works, we gained insight into using applications, word tracks, vendor solutions that have or have not worked for other dealers and have set processes in place that have proven themselves. This conference saved us time and money in setting up our BDC.”
 - Ed W, Sales Manager, Enid, OK

“Changed my outlook on the type of employee to look for in our sales department.” - 
Mark H, Dassel, MN

“Great conference! Really exceeded my expectations. I went expecting to hear about 50% of the sessions to be vendor “pitch” session, but actually experienced very little of that. I was able to get all of the information I needed to come back to the dealership and implement to create an effective internet department.”
 - David N, General Sales Manager, Martinez, GA
