The DrivingSales Executive Summit in Las Vegas is just a month away on Tuesday October 13th and Wednesday October 14th at the Hard Rock. As I've already mentioned in earlier blogs, the Summit is a whole new breed of "Unconference", bringing together the nation's top automotive retailers in a truly collaborative environment to sort through and better understand all the emerging social media marketing trends and interactive strategies available to us. What's working? What's not? What's right for you? What's right for automotive? The event is structured more like a live social media site with everyone participating at all levels, from choosing the topics to roundtables and workshops.  Which brings me to the UnAgenda. Most conference agendas are dictated and determined by conference organizers and sponsors. We're doing it a bit differently this time. The DSES will definitely highlight some of the movers and shakers in social media marketing, like Aaron Strout and Chris Brogan, but in addition to that, we'll have topics and speakers that have been suggested and selected by Summit attendees. We've received so many truly exciting and innovative topic ideas but the DSES is only 24 hours long! That's why we're asking people to come together and select those issues that are of greatest concern and interest so we can really zero in on those topics in detail. If you'd like to weigh in, we welcome your input, so leave it here. We'll be posting our UnAgenda next week on the DrivingSales website  and in the meantime, let us know if you have any questions and what you're thinking. After all, that's the whole idea behind our live action UnConference! For details about the DSES and to register, please visit: http://www.drivingsales.com/home/events
