LAS VEGAS — Organizers of Industry Summit 2014 have announced that the event will be held September 8–10 at Paris Las Vegas. The show now includes the F&I Conference, Special Finance Conference, Dealership Sales & Technology Conference and the P&A Leadership Conference.
Industry Summit is expected to draw thousands of dealer principals and managers as well as top trainers, agents and auto finance executives. In a departure from years past, a single pass will allow access to all four conferences and a shared expo hall.
Bobit Business Media, publisher of F&I and Showroom and Auto Dealer Monthly magazines, made the move to combine the shows after assuming ownership of the Special Finance Conference from Greg Goebel’s Used Car University in December. Goebel will continue to serve as that conference’s director and keynote speaker.
The F&I Conference celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2013 and remains the auto finance industry’s largest and most comprehensive event. The P&A Leadership Conference, which had been held in an adjacent hall at Paris Las Vegas, will join the other three events in the main hall and exhibition space.
The Dealership Sales & Technology Conference is a new event designed for forward-thinking dealers and digital managers who want to quantify and improve their online sales, no matter the size of their operation. The conference is expected to draw experts and thought leaders from across the digital space, allowing attendees to compare their efforts to those of the nation’s leading Internet dealers.
Further details will be available in the coming months. Dealers can visit the Industry Summit website or call (800) 576-8788 for more information or to request a team pass discount.
