Calling All Small Dealers

This fall, small dealers from across the country will once again meet up for the Small Dealer Conference, the third annual meeting for small dealers across North America. From November 10 to 11 in Charlotte, North Carolina, attendees will have the opportunity to network with fellow small dealers and thought leaders, share best practices, learn implementable strategies for their dealerships and much more!

Last year’s Small Dealer Conference boasted networking opportunities, inspirational speakers, educational sessions and more. The sessions focused on standard industry topics such as best practices, tax reform and ways to combat the ongoing technician shortage. The conference’s programming also included lectures on Dr. Seuss-inspired leadership strategies and how to develop “scrappy” marketing plans even without a marketing budget.

Though it is still being finalized, expect topics for this year’s event to focus on improving dealership operations, hiring and recruiting, technology, an OEM-focused session and more.

This conference balances educational sessions with networking events to ensure that your time away from the office is time well spent, giving attendees plenty of time to meet and share ideas with each other. Many previous participants found this to be a very beneficial aspect of the conference, as they were reminded they weren’t alone in their struggles and, ultimately, saved valuable time and money by learning from others’ mistakes.

There will be more information to come on this year’s event as we get closer to the conference date.
