DrivingSales Executive Summit Announces 2018 Breakout Speakers
Industry leaders selected to present on emerging topics and proven tactics in Las Vegas this October
SALT LAKE CITY, UT., July 19, 2017 -- DrivingSales, the world's largest online automotive community, is pleased to announce their lineup of speakers and breakout sessions at their 2018 conference the DrivingSales Executive Summit (DSES).
Breakout speakers this year include experts such as Greg Gifford, Brent Wees, and Joe Webb. 35 breakouts were selected, and will cover topics such as artificial intelligence, digital retailing, vehicle subscription models, and human capital management.
The breakout presenters at DSES are selected by a dealer panel. Submissions are reviewed by dealership personnel who score each submission. The process of choosing candidates was very intense this year as only 20 percent of the total applications were selected to present.
They join the innovative keynotes to complete the agenda of the DrivingSales Executive Summit. DSES happens every year at the start of the fourth quarter, where the most progressive dealers in the country gather to collaborate on emerging trends and formulate their business plans for the upcoming year.
DSES will take place at the luxurious Bellagio hotel on the Las Vegas Strip from October 21-23.

DrivingSales was founded in 2003 by a 3rd generation dealer, Jared Hamilton, while attending NADA’s Dealer Candidate Academy. Hamilton and his classmates had grown frustrated that as a dealer, they didn’t have a trusted resource that could deliver insight as fast as the market was changing. So, as part of a homework assignment, he built a networking platform to connect his classmates and algorithmically share information between each of their dealerships in real time — helping each team solve their unique operational challenges.
DrivingSales mission is simple: to help dealers optimize their business and fuel excellence in employees to advance their careers. Having grown from humble roots as a tiny dealer startup to the global brand it is today, DrivingSales always stays true to the automotive retailer’s needs and helps them navigate the exciting opportunities in these innovative times.
