Following the major U.S. auto shows in Los Angeles and Detroit, the focus of the global automotive industry will center on the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Show in San Francisco, which runs from Jan. 24-27, 2019, at the newly-renovated Moscone Center.
Thousands of U.S. new-car dealers and their managers – including dealers from 38 countries – automaker executives, exhibitors and media will convene in the City by the Bay, which has hosted the NADA Show 16 times since 1949.
“We’re encouraging more dealership managers to attend the upcoming show, which offers numerous career development opportunities, such as the educational workshops and training sessions, including the new NADA Professional Series training program designed specifically for new and high-potential dealership managers,” said Annette DiLorenzo Thayer, chairman of the NADA Show committee.
Considered the Automotive Industry Event of the Year, the NADA Show includes keynote speakers, hundreds of educational workshop sessions, dealer franchise meetings, an Expo with 500 exhibitors and numerous networking opportunities.
Dealers and their managers who register online by Jan. 18 will save $75 off the onsite registration rate.

The NADA convention was held in Dallas in 1992 and 1995.
“Dallas is now one of the top five convention cities in the country,” Pitt added. “The convention center has expanded. Economic development has revitalized the downtown area with new hotels, restaurants and entertainment districts.”
