The 8th Digital Dealer Conference and Exposition will be held at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, April 20th-22nd, 2010 in Orlando, Florida.
The last conference in Nashville in October drew over 540 dealership attendees and featured 46 exhibitors in over 60 booths spaces. Combined, the last two Digital Dealer Conferences drew just under 1,000 registered dealers, GMs, Internet Sales Managers, e-Commerce Directors and BDC/CRM Managers, and every one of them was there to learn more about Internet and technology-related issues, both from speakers and from exhibitors.
We expect 50 to 60 exhibitors and are once again expecting over 500 dealership attendees in Orlando this Spring. We’ve done seven of these now and have found the perfect balance of fulfilling both attendees’ and exhibitors/sponsors’ goals. There simply is no comparison or better value for your tight marketing/trade show dollars.
The speaking program will be heavy with practitioners who are having great success in their markets. We are bringing in speakers from outside the industry to help forward–thinking dealerships stay ahead of the curve. Once again, a half-day “newbie” class will be held before the program even starts so anyone new to this side of the business (including dealers themselves) can get up to speed quickly and get the most out of the two days of powerful sessions presented. And the super-successful Peer Networking Roundtables are going to take place immediately before the conference begins and immediately after it ends.
The exhibit hall is where all dining, break and social functions will be held with a single room big enough for 100 exhibit booths and over 1,000 attendees. Our focus is on getting maximum impact for our exhibitors by having the attendees in the exhibit hall for extended periods at breakfast, lunch and the evening receptions. And every one of them is a prospect for your company’s products and services…that’s why they are there. Plus we're ending the evening receptions earlier than in the past to allow you sufficient time to entertain customers and prospects. The Rosen Shingle Creek is a self-contained resort, with multiple options on-site for wining and dining clients and prospects.
Sponsorship opportunities abound, with multiple levels of sponsorship and opportunities to host private functions in conjunction with the show. Title sponsor, Leadership sponsor, Program sponsor, Track sponsor, Affiliated sponsor, food/beverage sponsor…sponsorship opportunities for virtually every size budget. There are opportunities for every size company to show you’re a “player” in the industry.
