Industry Summit Organizers Reveal New Conference Features
TORRANCE, Calif. — Industry Summit 2015, scheduled for Sept. 8-10 at the Paris Las Vegas, will feature special lightning-round sessions that will allow attendees to discover or rediscover key features equipping today’s leading F&I tools and solutions, event organizers announced this week. The new addition is part of Industry Summit’s 2015 theme: “Train. Discover. Network.”
The lighting-round sessions, which will include live demos of today's leading software solutions, will kick off on Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 1 p.m. with a special “Tech Talk” keynote address from Sean V. Bradley, founder and CEO of Dealer Synergy and author of “Win the Game of Googleopoly: Unlocking the Secret Strategy of Search Engines.”
“This is all about building a better F&I professional,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of F&I and Showroom and Auto Dealer Monthly. “So aside from featuring an intense training curriculum taught by the who’s who in F&I, we’re offering these special lighting-round sessions to allow attendees to discover the F&I industry’s newest tools and solutions. And there’s no one better than Sean to kick off the festivities.”
Industry Summit 2015 will once again feature the top F&I trainers in the business. They will touch on a range of key F&I topics, from department management and lender relations to objection handling, new closing techniques and more. To view this year’s roster of F&I trainers, click here.
The event will also feature a host of networking opportunities, providing attendees with a chance to connect with the top minds in the business. “And the learning doesn’t stop after show hours,” said Gregory Arroyo, editorial director of F&I and Showroom and Auto Dealer Monthly. “There’s also columnist Mad Marv Eleazer’s annual get-togethers inside the Paris’ Le Central bar, where you’ll find F&I managers, trainers and even F&I product provider reps talking shop over a nice beverage and cigar. It’s where some of the best F&I advice is shared.”
For front-end dealership personnel, Industry Summit will also feature Greg Goebel’s Used Vehicle Retailing and Bobit Business Media’s Dealership Sales & Technology educational programs. Attendees who register for a full conference pass will also gain access to Jim Ziegler’s two-day Profit Masters event, which will have the Alpha Dawg sharing the same strategies that made him a record-setting manager.
