Professional Community for Car Dealers, Marketing, Advertising and Sales Leaders
Speakers/presentations reviewed and selected by dealers; submission deadline June 29th
SALT LAKE CITY, UT - DrivingSales today announced that speaker and presentation proposals are now being accepted for consideration for the fourth annual DrivingSales Executive Summit (DSES). The DSES is the most authoritative event for innovative dealers, and will be held Sunday, October 21st through Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012 at the Bellagio Las Vegas. Early-bird Registration is now open at http://drivingsalesexecutivesummit.com/features/standard-registration/.
“The DrivingSales Executive Summit is renowned for the freshness, relevance and actionable value of its presentations and speakers because dealers make the content decisions,” said DrivingSales CEO and Founder, Jared Hamilton. “The summit reflects the topics dealers are buzzing about and, in turn, creates the new buzz and actionable strategies for the year ahead. Our industry is full of creative ideas and talented strategists, and we look forward to seeing that reflected in these applications – and then bringing to light the best ideas and strategies our industry has to offer.”
Experienced and creative speakers and dealer professionals are invited to submit presentation proposals on innovative topics and best practices/tactics via email to submissions(at)drivingsales(dot)com. The DrivingSales Dealer Advisory Board reviews all applications and selects the speakers and the topics that will provide the most relevant, useful, and inspiring information and strategies for DSES attendees.
The DrivingSales Executive Summit is 100% dealer driven and designed specifically for the most advanced dealer principals and dealership executives in the industry. The summit has a vendor-neutral policy, meaning no vendor influence on presentation selection and adherence to a strict dealer-to-vendor ratio. The DrivingSales Executive Summit 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.
All speaker applications must be emailed to submissions(at)drivingsales(dot)com by Friday, June 29, 2012. Selected speakers will be notified by Friday, July 27, 2012. For more information and to download the Speaker Submission Form, go to:
Last year's summit was standing room only, and although DSES 2012 will allow for an expanded number of registrants, it is expected to sell out quickly. Register for DSES at: http://drivingsalesexecutivesummit.com/features/standard-registration/.
