NADA Convention is in Las Vegas Starting March 22

NADA is the world’s largest international convention of franchised new-vehicle dealers. These dealers gather together to share ideas and learn about new innovations within the automotive industry. Through NADA, dealers have the opportunity to meet major automakers, participate in workshops with top-of-the-line trainers, and connect with exhibitors who will feature cutting-edge services, technology, and equipment.

The 2018 convention will be taking place in Las Vegas. This means that in addition to gaining a wealth of knowledge, attendees will also have the opportunity to try their luck at the tables.

This year’s convention will also feature the following keynote speakers:

  • 2017 NADA Chairman: Mark N. Scarpelli
  • Head Football Coach, University of Alabama Crimson Tide: Nick Saban
  • CEO of Waymo LLC: John Krafcik
  • 2017 NADA Vice Chairman: Wes Lutz
  • Former SEAL Team Six Leader, Naval Special Warfare Group: Robert O’Neill

All NADA activities will take place in the Las Vegas Convention Center unless otherwise indicated.
