Progressive Content

Where else can you learn how to create a legendary dealership brand, crack the SEO code for 2015, compete on customer experience (with proprietary research), and build better customer relationships in 2017?

You will also hear numerous sessions on advanced general marketing, search, dealership operations, social, website optimization, and mobile that can help you plan for next year and beyond.

Executive Audience

As we shared in our recent inforgraphic, 34% of our attendees are high-level executives, senior management, or owners. Our audience is full of progressive dealers who are willing to collaborate and raise the level of automotive retailing.

Brilliant Speakers

Year after year, DSES puts together an impressive lineup of keynote speakers to provide attendees with incredible insights and 2014 is no different:

  • Bryan Eisenberg, Online Marketing Pioneer
  • Rand Fishkin, Co-Author of Art of SEO and Co-Founder of Moz
  • Jared Hamilton, Founder and CEO of DrivingSales

Dealer Driven

DrivingSales works with a board of dealers to choose our content. In other words, sponsors do not drive DSES. We want to ensure forward-moving, unbiased content so dealers can learn what they need to in order to improve their dealership.

Exclusive Venue

For the fourth year in a row, the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada has been the home for DSES. With unrivaled Italian décor and large conference rooms, the Bellagio makes for an ideal location for our attendees.

Highest Quality

From our speakers and content to our contests and venue, DSES strives to provide the highest quality conference in the industry.
