The DrivingSales Executive Summit is less than a month away!

Unlike other automotive industry events, the DrivingSales Executive Summit is 100% dealer driven and designed specifically for the most advanced dealer principals and dealership executives in the industry.

In addition to world-renowned speakers and thought provoking workshops, DSES also holds the 2011 DrivingSales Dealer Best Idea Contest. This contest, sponsored by ADP |Cobalt, brings attention to the original and creative ideas that are driving results in dealerships across the country. The award recognizes the most innovative dealership strategies of 2011.

Five auto dealer finalists will have a chance to win over $10,000 in cash and prizes, and the opportunity to present their ‘best idea’ at DSES in October.

All dealership employees are invited to apply.  Applications are reviewed by a dealer panel, which selects five finalists to be invited onstage at DSES to present their ‘best idea’ in competition for over $10,000 in cash and prizes and the award for 2011’s Best Idea.
