The Future of the Dealership is People

Whether it’s customers, employees, people-driven trends and services, or overall dealership culture, what’s moving dealerships forward today is people. NADA’s education to support the dealerships of tomorrow is people-focused as well. For next year’s NADA Show, workshop programming will home in on this as what’s truly guiding the industry. That means teaching dealers how to hire the best personnel, how to grow the talent they already have, how to stay on top of what customers need and want, and how to be ahead of the trends that people care about as a tool for business success.

As we review the submissions for next year’s education workshops, we’re choosing topics that are exploring, expanding and innovating this important aspect of dealer business. In addition, this year’s Call for Speakers process includes some new features. You’ll be able to:

  • Choose your specific workshop focus from a list of hot industry topics, pre-determined by our NADA subject matter experts.
  • Select your workshop level based on the content–Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced.
  • Prepare your proposal content with the future of the industry in mind.

Save the date, NADA Show 2021 takes place January 21-24 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Help us continue the tradition of industry-leading education for the dealerships of tomorrow at next year’s Show. Read more about the Call for Speakers process and get ready to submit your proposal!
