Gary Vaynerchuk is going to Keynote DSES this year!

Hey everyone,

BIG Announcement:  Gary Vaynerchuk is going to Keynote DSES this year! 

Not only will he be our main Keynote speaker, but Dealer.com (who helped us arrange Gary's participation) will be providing his new book, Thank You Economy, to the first group of dealers who register.  If all that wasn’t cool enough, Gary has also agreed to hang out after his keynote, perhaps drink some wine and even sign some books.

If that doesn’t make you stoked about this year’s DrivingSales Executive Summit I don’t know what will!

Gary has a lot in common with car dealers and his passion and message is dead on for our industry.  When we asked you, the community, who you wanted to have keynote, he was overwhelmingly the most requested via comment, email, and phone.   

He is a proven business operator, his background is that his family had a local retail business, not a dealership, but liquor store.  The store was doing about $4 million in sales per year when he got involved, and with social media he grew the business to over $60 million per year by using social media to drive wine sales.  He has since built many multi-million dollar companies and consults with some of the biggest brands on the planet about driving sales online.  He has written two best selling books and is a wine connoisseur famous for his reviews on winelibrarytv, another business of his.

Gary is known around the globe as being an expert in digital marketing, social media, and how to transform your business and make money using social media.  His message focuses on how to “humanize your business” in this new, uber connected, super transparent world.  His style is super fast-paced, blunt, crazy passionate, and perfect for us in the car business… but most of you know that since many of you requested him.

Registration is now open for the event, and you will want to register early.  Last year's show exceeded our planned capacity and sold out, so register as early as you can for this year’s conference to guarantee you get a seat, plus we have a few more surprises up our sleeve for those who register early.  There is no question it will be the best, most talked about event of the year -- just ask anyone who has been lucky enough to attend in the past.

As always, this year's DSES will feature some of the biggest names in digital marketing on the planet, not just from our industry but the most cutting edge stuff from true world-leading experts.  The conference is the most progressive and collaborative environment for dealership executive teams to gather, receive the highest quality education, network with the top dealers in the country, and push their stores to new limits.  We host the event at the start of the 4th quarter so your dealership executive team can use the DSES as the collaboration point to begin creating your business strategy for the next year.  We even offer a new super low price for executive teams of 4 or more who attend together.  Round up the troops and get registered!

Looking forward to seeing you all there.  Stay tuned; we have a ton more cool announcements about DSES coming soon…

This is such a big deal for DSES, the retail industry and the lucky people who will be in the audience. Congrats Jared! There you go raising the bar. You're doing a great job of introducing quality talent from outside our segment - and vice-versa. Looking forward to it!
