Join us on the first day of Summit, Tuesday, January 16, for the beginning of our Professional Dealer Education sessions. We are keeping up with the success of last year by giving you three days of breakout sessions to make sure you get your fill of content and ideas to take back to your dealership. We want to make sure that you get to see as many of the sessions we have planned as possible. These 36 sessions will cover topics in everyone’s area of interest.

The six education tracks for this year are leadership, management, technology, product support, rental and sales. These tracks will cover industry hot topics and information you need to help you get ahead in your career. Strategic planning, goal setting, avoiding rental contract mistakes, telematics, hiring, recruiting, training tips, digital marketing and client relationships will be covered over the three days of sessions.

Our keynote speakers are Carly Fiorina, former CEO of HP; political contributor Laura Ingraham; a rising star in House Democratic leadership, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos and the senior vice president and chief sales officer for MGM Resorts International, Michael Dominguez. They will share leadership tips, how they got to the places they are now, and much more that will inspire you with ideas on how to bring your organization to the next level.

All of the most up-to-date information can be found on the Summit website.
