MCLEAN, Va. (Oct. 4, 2010) - Thousands of auto dealers and exhibitors, along with automaker CEOs and other top executives, will attend the 2011 NADA Convention & Expo in San Francisco Feb. 5 to 7.

The NADA convention, which is considered the “Industry Event of the Year,” includes franchise meetings, multiple workshops and hundreds of exhibits. It also offers dealers and their managers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to stay informed on industry issues and trends, to understand the changing economy and to ensure future success at the dealership.

Other keynote speakers are former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and heroic airline pilot Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger, III.
