It’s been another eventful year in the auto business. The challenges of this ever-changing industry are the reason many of us thrive and enjoy our work. I’ve had the opportunity to see successful and innovative businesses across geographies and franchises as I’ve travelled across the country visiting dealers. I’ve learned a lot from you all, and I look forward to gathering as an industry later this month to continue to learn, strategize and celebrate with you.
In less than three weeks, January 26-29, join the thousands of dealers and managers, OEM executives, and allied industry representatives as we return to Dallas for NADA Show 2023.
Our Main Stage lineup has names and faces you’ll have no problem recognizing. On Friday, Nikki Haley will reflect on her time as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and as the first minority and first woman to serve as Governor of South Carolina. Drawing on her experience working in her family business, she will offer lessons in leadership, negotiation, and decision making.
On Saturday, Greg Gutfeld will take the NADA stage. With 15 years of hosting various shows on Fox including the current No. 1 late-night show, GUTFELD!, he will bring his trademark humor and sharp insights to the pressing topics of the industry.
And on our last day, Deion Sanders, “Coach Prime,” will share the motivations and inspirations for his 14-year NFL career and his leadership techniques as the head coach at the University of Colorado Boulder.
Beyond the Main Stage, NADA Show will be packed with the best-in-class education and workshops you’ve come to know and expect from NADA. In Dallas, we’ll have over 80 workshops and 24 sessions at The Exchange, as well as TED-style talks on the industry’s hottest topics in the Dealer Learning Lab and EV Solutions Center. And this programming is not just for dealers – there’s something for the entire management team, including development in hiring, customer service, parts inventory management, collision center throughput, F&I regulations and compliance, marketing strategies, and sales.
The Expo floor – all 700,000 square feet of it – has been sold out for weeks. We are excited to welcome returning and new exhibitors with more than 500 companies offering thousands of products, solutions, and services. This will be a one-stop-shop to engage with your current providers and explore new suppliers.
It wouldn’t be a NADA Show without a party (or several!). Join the NADA team and board of directors for our welcome kickoff reception Roundup at Gilley’s with special guest country music superstar Brad Paisley.
