NADA Issues Call for Convention Workshop Proposals

Published April 27, 2015


MCLEAN, Va. (April 27, 2015) -- The workshops are one of the main attractions at the annual NADA Convention and Expo. More than 17,200 participants, which included new-car dealers, dealership managers and industry professionals, attended the workshop sessions at the past convention.
Workshop proposals for the 2016 NADA convention, which will be held in Las Vegas, can be submitted online from May 4 to June 26, 2015.
The workshops typically cover many aspects of the dealership business through several educational tracks that are specific to key operational areas, which include:

  • Dealer/Executive;
  • Digital and Traditional Marketing;
  • Legal and Regulatory;
  • Employee Recruiting, Hiring and Retention;
  • Fixed Ops (Parts, Service and Body Shop); and
  • Variable Ops (Sales, Business Office and F&I.)

Each workshop proposal should be new content - not previously presented - on a relevant topic of interest to new-car dealers and their managers. Each proposal should include a title, synopsis, learning objectives, presentation format and 90-second video clip covering the workshop's main focus.
The workshops, which are presented each year by the nation's top industry experts, are typically offered three times daily over the four-day convention.
The deadline to submit a proposal is 5 p.m. ET on June 26. Candidates will be notified in October if their workshop proposal has been accepted.
The NADA convention, considered the Automotive Industry Event of the Year, runs from Thursday, March 31, to Sunday, April 3, in Las Vegas.
