Digital Dealer 6 Will Show Dealers How to Endure, Survive and Thrive in a Challenging Market for Car Sales

Don’t miss out on the biggest retail automotive e-commerce event of the year!

The 6th Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition will be held at the Mirage, Las Vegas, April 19-21, 2009. The last spring conference in Orlando in April drew over 1,000 attendees and featured 60 exhibitors in almost 100 booths spaces. There were over 540 registered dealers, GMs, Internet Sales Managers, e-Commerce Directors and BDC/CRM Managers, and unlike the NADA Convention & Exposition, every one of them was there to learn more about Internet and technology-related issues, both from speakers and from exhibitors.

Combined, last spring and last fall, there were almost 1,000 dealership attendees at the 4th and 5th Digital Dealer Conferences… every one of them was there to learn more about Internet and technology-related issues, both from speakers and from exhibitors.

We expect 70 to 80 exhibitors and are shooting for over 1,000 attendees in Las Vegas this spring, including 500-plus dealership attendees. We’ve done five of these now and have found the right balance of fulfilling both attendees’ and exhibitors/sponsors’ goals.

As such, you need to have your best shot in knowing how to endure, survive and thrive in these tumultuous times. You need to be in front of your competitors in marketing to prospective and current customers. You need to do this in a way that provides ROI. You need to find out what the best in the business are doing. You need to know what the top minds believe is the best way to approach this market. You need to hear from the top consultants and trainers in the industry. You need to see what the leading edge companies have to offer to give you your best shot. You need…the 6th Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition.

Every speaker submitting a proposal to speak at the April event has been instructed to focus their presentation specifically on How to Endure, Survive and Even Thrive in Tumultuous Times. Whatever their knowledge, whatever their experience, whatever their specific expertise…they will be presenting it with the focus on How to Endure, Survive and Even Thrive in Tumultuous Times.

“I attend several conferences each year and for the past 2 years the Digital Dealer conference has provided me with more real-world business practice improvements than any other. In 2006 our team from Courtesy Chevrolet went back to the dealership from the conference with new techniques that allowed us to increase used vehicle sales dramatically. In 2007 we brought back several new operational processes, but one related to URL acquisition began to pay off for us before the 2007 conference ended!”

“The conference exceeded my expectations in that I have a broader understanding of what's happening in the US market, with regard to Internet initiatives. It was pleasing to learn that the way we currently do things in Australia could be considered on par with many US dealers, which may enable us to adopt some of the many exciting products & services available as we begin to realise the benefits of developing our online presence.”

“Trying to get old school car guys to understand the importance of this new way of communication is very difficult. The conference provided me with lots of facts, numbers and results to present to my GM.”

“The conference opened my eyes to knowing that I do a lot of things right compared to most, but there are still always new ideas and ways to do things more efficiently. My problems are not only my problems but very similar to others and being able to converse and network with other ISM's, I was able to make some decisions I otherwise probably would not have made.”

“The conference re-enforced best practices being used, allowed me to compare my BDC results to others and measure the effectiveness of my team. Got some very informative ideas and processes. Saw the new technology that is being offered by vendors. Spoke to peers and shared problems and solutions to the problems.”

“The conference had value in that I was able to see what solutions vendors were offering. It also let me know what the "state of the world" was in in regards to mindsets toward Internet departments. I found it interesting that there wasn't a consistent message within the conference itself (i.e. this is the way we think you should do it) but rather, everyone had their own opinion. Don't get me wrong, I think the open sharing of ideas is very important to a conference and I'm not advocating that everyone preach the same thing. It was more of an enlightenment on my part that there is still a wide range of ideas and processes that are happening throughout the country. It also fascinated me the range of actual practices and differing degrees of implementation that are occurring throughout dealerships (everything from the ‘Ralph Paglia’ progressive-types to the ‘my liners take my Internet leads and that's my Internet dept’ types.”
