If you supply or market a technology or Internet solution to the automotive industry, Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition is the place you need to be. It is quite simply the largest gathering of dealers and managers – your customers, convening in one place to find new solutions to power their dealerships.
Just one Digital Dealer Conference has more dealers and managers attend than all the copy-cat, wanna-be events combined. And we host two Digital Dealer Conferences per year. Often imitated, never close to duplicated, Digital Dealer has the formula to attract dealership attendees like no other event has or ever will. This ain’t as easy as it looks…that’s why Automotive News and Ward’s Dealer Business tried, failed and gave up. Others will surely follow, but for dealers, managers, exhibitors and sponsors, there is only one Digital Dealer Conference. But don’t just take our word for it; see what industry leaders have to say:
“We’re very excited to be here, all of us at AutoTrader.com. I came to the first Digital Dealer conference as the only employee and realized we made a mistake by not having a stronger presence. We’ve been here every year since and have seen the conference mushroom into a true industry phenomenon where you have hundreds of decision-making progressive dealers trying to learn about how they can succeed on the Internet. It’s a wonderful venue for Autotrader to get our message out and to learn from our customers and prospective customers on what we need to do to serve them better.“
Chip Perry, CEO, AutoTrader.com
“Tremendous turn-out and everyone is excited. The exhibitors are most excited because the dealers that come to this conference are the ones that are most serious about finding digital solutions to serve their businesses. Salespeople love to come to this event because the dealers that are here are serious about doing business.“
Rob Lange , National Sales Training Director, Kelley Blue Book
No other event delivers a qualified audience like Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition; all of its attendees come specifically to learn and implement new technology solutions in their dealerships. Buyers attend with generous open to buy budgets and immediate purchasing intent.
In an era of tight budgets and even tighter schedules it is more important than ever to reach your customers and prospective customers in the most cost effective and efficient manner. Study after study demonstrates that there is no more effective way to connect with a customer than at a tradeshow.

Mike Champagne, Vice president of Sales & Marketing, Advanta-Star
“I’ve really been impressed this year. It’s bigger, more attendees, they are really focused in on looking for the right solutions and they are taking the time to find them. We’ve really been busy from the time the doors open until they close. Digital Dealer is the only place that people in this industry can go and find out anything they need to know about how the world of Internet shopping and the dealership on the Internet operates today. This is the one place where it’s all at – from education to vendors.
