Professional Community for Car Dealers, Marketing, Advertising and Sales Leaders
Salt Lake City, UT – April 11, 2013 – DrivingSales today announced that the fifth annual DrivingSales Executive Summit (DSES) will be held Sunday, October 13th through Tuesday, October 15th, 2013 at the Bellagio Las Vegas. The DSES brings together progressive auto dealers with thought leaders and innovators from in- and outside the auto industry. Focused on providing the most relevant information to help auto dealers formulate their business plans for the following year, DSES offers three days of collaboration and fresh, leading-edge information, including special-topic breakouts, expert panels, dealer and vendor contests, and world-renowned speakers. Pre-sale discount tickets are currently available through April 30th, 2013 at http://drivingsalesexecutivesummit.com/registration/.
“The DrivingSales Executive Summit has become the auto industry’s go-to event for dealership innovation. Why? Because we take our cues from dealers themselves,” said DrivingSales Founder and CEO Jared Hamilton. “Throughout the year, the DrivingSales team listens to and asks the dealer community what is important to them and then our Dealer Advisory Board makes the final decision on the hot topics and profit-building information that will form the core of our agenda. Each year we build on the success and learnings of the previous year to provide the most inspiring, stimulating and actionable content – and this year is no exception. We think 2013 will be the most exciting summit yet!”
According to Hamilton, the 2013 DSES will offer a keynote line-up of world-renowned business, dealership and marketing experts, as well as groundbreaking research, all designed to offer new perspectives and real-world, implementable, take-away strategies for dealership executives. This year’s summit will also include expanded opportunities for peer-to-peer interaction, as well as the popular Innovation Cup (for Vendors) and Best Idea (for Dealers) Award competitions.

About The DrivingSales Executive Summit (DSES)
The DrivingSales Executive Summit is the most authoritative profit-building event for innovative dealers. DSES brings together the most progressive dealers in the country, along with world-renowned speakers, all focused on pushing the auto industry’s ‘innovation boundaries’ and translating the latest trends and business realities into solid action plans for every dealership department. The summit is 100 percent dealer-driven and has a vendor-neutral policy, meaning no vendor influence on presentation selection and adherence to a strict dealer-to-vendor ratio and is the only automotive conference where dealers decide the agenda, not the vendor sponsors. This translates into the highest level of learning for the dealer attendees versus other events where workshops are little more than glorified sales pitches.
Founded in 2008 and dedicated to the dealer community, DrivingSales is a business intelligence and performance improvement company that delivers unbiased*, profit-building information to make automobile dealers more successful through three distinct channels: DrivingSales Data, DrivingSales University and DrivingSales Media. DrivingSales Data houses the largest database of cross-vendor, dealership performance data in the North American auto industry and provides dealerships with the most statistically accurate performance benchmarks and metrics for their marketing and technology investments. DrivingSales University is a fully interactive online university that offers advanced profit-building strategies to automotive professionals through hundreds of classes taught by world-leading experts. DrivingSales Media connects dealers to peers and information through its global media assets, including DrivingSales.com, the world’s largest automotive social network; The Dealership Innovation Guide, an industry leading quarterly publication; DrivingSales Executive Summit, the top automotive conference for progressive dealers, and DrivingSalesTV, Web TV covering everything car-dealer related. Approximately one in every three dealerships in the United States has a registered member in the DrivingSales community.
*Vendor Neutral Policy: Dedicated solely to making dealerships more profitable, while also providing benefit to automakers and the industry as a whole, DrivingSales adheres to a strict vendor neutral policy through each of its channels. This means the company only provides unbiased information, not ‘pay-to-play’ follow up services -- and never accepts payment in exchange for media coverage or lets potential advertisers dictate messaging or create bias in any of its channels.
