DSES is 100% dealer-driven and has a vendor-neutral policy. There is no vendor influence on presentation selection with an adherence to a strict dealer-to-vendor ratio and 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.
With more outside-of-the-industry, world renowned speakers than any other automotive conference with new innovative ideas and cutting-edge marketing strategies than ever before. Expanded breakout sessions dedicated to advanced search, social, mobile, data analytics, dealership operations and more! The only conference that doesn't sell speaking spots to the vendors. DSES always has, and always will be driven by the most progressive dealers in the industry!
