Dominguez will discuss his path as the chief sales officer of MGM Resorts. The range of topics and the insight they will share with attendees is sure to make this group of keynote speakers a memorable one.

We will continue what we started last year with three full days of dealer-specific education presented by leading subject-matter experts. Next year’s tracks will include leadership, rental, sales, management, product support and technology. These six education tracks were chosen to cover all areas of dealership operations, as well as covering industry hot topics. With each session, there are tremendous opportunities to expand on existing knowledge while learning new, valuable information to take back to your organization.

We are also quickly filling up space on the CONDEX floor. Here you can learn about the products you need to grow your dealership, the services you need to improve your dealership, and the resources you need to take your dealership to the next level.

Our hospitality suites will create a great space for one-on-one meetings between dealers and manufacturers. Network, make business connections and talk business in these suites.

We are excited to announce that we will be holding The AED Foundation Fundraising Gala once again this year, on January 16, at Casa De Shenandoah, Wayne Newton’s estate. Join us for what is sure to be a spectacular event to bring awareness to The AED Foundation’s mission to enhance the success of AED member companies through accreditation, career promotion and research. All proceeds from ticket sales and the auction will go to The AED Foundation. We are planning a few exciting surprises, so make sure to keep an eye on our website and your emails.
