By Charlie Gilchrist, 2019 NADA chairman

Forget the restaurant reservation and the romantic beach getaway next February; I’m personally inviting you to spend Valentine’s Day with me—and all of NADA—at the 2020 Show in Las Vegas! Show registration is now open, so start making plans to be at the Industry Event of the Year next February 14-17 (Friday through Monday).

Thousands of fellow dealers and managers, OEM executives, allied industry and international guests will converge in the Entertainment Capital of the World to celebrate a year’s worth of hard work and success. We’ll be talking about topics that matter most to you in today’s world of advanced technology, including digital strategy, data handling and the evolution of the dealer business. As always, the NADA Show is the only place that brings exclusive franchise meetings where you get the chance to meet with your OEMs’ top executives and discuss the issues most important to your business.

NADA proudly brings you the only industry event that showcases 500 exhibitors on an impressive expo floor, more than 100 renowned workshop sessions covering 60+ hot topics, dynamic lifestyle programs and the opportunity to network with the best and brightest in our industry. Join us at the opening general session on Saturday, Feb. 15, where I’ll be honored to share my love of and perspective on this industry as your 2019 NADA chairman. This is Vegas after all, so we’ll be sure to leave you entertained with special guest comedian and TV personality Kathleen Madigan. We’re also excited about our Sunday general session special guest, the Right Honourable David Cameron, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. As one of the most prominent influencers of the early 21st century, Mr. Cameron will offer lessons in leadership and his take on economic strength during an extraordinary time in global affairs. And on Monday, you cannot miss Ohio dealer Rhett Ricart, 2019 NADA vice chairman, who will proudly take the wheel as your new chair.

If all this is not enough to book your flight today, my wedding anniversary is on February 14; what an honor it would be for my wife, Trina, and me to celebrate with you and the entire city of Vegas.

We are NADA and the 2020 Show wouldn’t be complete without you. Register today and join us at the event you cannot miss! I look forward to seeing you Valentine’s Day weekend at our one and only Show.
