NADA Convention Expands Expo to Meet Demand for Booth Space
10 HOTELS IN SAN FRANCISCO SELL OUT AFTER THE FIRST WEEK OF ATTENDEE REGISTRATION.
McLEAN, Va. (Aug. 8, 2014) - The floor plan of the 2015 National Automobile Dealers Association Convention & Expo in San Francisco has been increased to accommodate a large number of requests for exhibit space.
"There has been an overwhelming response from companies applying for booth space," said Steve Pitt, NADA vice president of conventions and expositions. "So far, we've received more than 500 requests from companies that want to exhibit, and the expansion will allow us to accommodate most of them."
The NADA Convention runs Thursday, Jan. 22, to Sunday, Jan. 25, at the Moscone Center. The NADA Expo, which runs Jan. 23-25, will now occupy more than 600,000 square feet of exhibit space in the lower levels of Moscone South, Moscone North and Levels 1 and 2 of Moscone West.
"In addition, 10 out of 42 hotels sold out during the first week of attendee registration," Pitt added.
The keynote speakers are former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and NADA Chairman Forrest McConnell, III, on Friday, Jan. 23; Jay Leno and NADA Vice Chairman Bill Fox on Saturday, Jan. 24; and inspirational speaker Beck Weathers on Sunday, Jan. 25.
Considered the "Automotive Industry Event of the Year," in addition to the Expo, the NADA Convention includes dealer-manufacturer franchise meetings, hundreds of educational workshops for dealers and their managers and numerous networking events.
Online registration is now open. Dealers and their managers are encouraged to make their hotel reservations as soon as possible because rooms will fill up quickly. Early bird registration ends Sept. 12, which includes a $100 discount from the onsite rate. For more information or to register, visit www.nadaconvention.org.
