Salt Lake City, UT – September 4, 2014 – DrivingSales today announced the full agenda of breakout speakers and presentations for the 2014 DrivingSales Executive Summit (DSES).

The DSES, which had record attendance in 2013, and has sold out every year since inception, is unique in the industry because auto dealers determine the speakers and agenda. This year’s sixth annual summit will be held Sunday, October 12th through Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 at the Bellagio Las Vegas. The breakout speakers join an agenda that also includes keynotes from digital expert and best-selling author Brian Solis; SEO ‘Wizard’ Rand Fishkin; eMarketer’s lead digital auto analyst, Mike Hudson; Kellogg School of Management marketing professor Florian Zettelmeyer, and online marketing pioneer, Bryan Eisenberg.
“We are very excited to expand the range of breakout sessions at the DSES even further this year with an impressive roster of innovators and tacticians from some of the top companies and dealerships in our industry – all selected by those who understand best what it is our attendees want to know: their dealer peers,” said DrivingSales CEO and Founder, Jared Hamilton. “The diversity of topics this year is indicative of the increasing demands today’s digital/always-on universe places on the dealership - from bleeding edge topics such as wearable technology, to the latest evolution of mobile and social media, to key operational tactics from new car sales to F&I to service. Our mandate with DSES is to provide ahead-of-the-curve insights, actionable information, and profit-building practices that our attendees can take home and immediately implement in their stores. We have no doubt that this year’s agenda will achieve just that.”
