DrivingSales Executive Summit Sneak Peek - Registration Now Open!

Imagine:  A beautiful upscale ballroom, darkened except for a spotlight on stage where the world-renowned Gary Vaynerchuck finished giving quite possibly the most power-packed social business operational advice that dealers have ever heard, and dealers responding with a clamorous standing ovation. 

Those who walked out of that Bellagio ballroom at last year’s DrivingSales Executive Summit in October left the room feeling energized, empowered, and thinking, “How are they ever going to top that?”

DrivingSales has long been working on doing just that.  As a dealer-driven event, the dealer community has had a heavy hand in our preparations and is inspiring a world-class event unlike any other.  As always, dealers suggest and ultimately select the cutting-edge topics to be discussed, with absolutely no influence from vendor sponsors.  What was that?  No vendor influence on content, no pay-to-play.  Of course, we can’t spill all of the content beans just yet, but what kind of person would I be if I didn’t share a few of the details?

Now imagine:  A keynote from a sports world celebrity; an industry-first co-presentation from two of the largest and most influential digital companies in the world; the release of proprietary research from one of the leading marketing academics on the influence of the Internet on the auto industry, and a closing keynote from one of the world’s top 5 digital influencers, presented jointly with J.D. Power & Associates’ Automotive Marketing Roundtable.   And so much more.

More details will be coming your way ASAP, but in the meantime, DSES registration is now open!  The 2012 DrivingSales Executive Summit will be held at the Bellagio Las Vegas from Sunday, October 21st through Tuesday, October 23rd. Last year's summit was standing room only, and although DSES 2012 will allow for an expanded number of registrants, it is expected to sell out quickly.  Register now to take advantage of early bird registration through August 31st, go to: http://drivingsalesexecutivesummit.com/features/standard-registration/

“The DrivingSales Executive Summit sets the bar as the most relevant and informative three days I spend outside of the dealership each year. If you are serious about the retail automotive business, and you have yet to attend DSES, stop what you’re doing and make your reservations right now.”

Yeah, Ric!
