Must-See Vendors at the 2016 NADA Convention & Expo
Don’t gamble in the Exhibition Hall; check out these can't-miss companies
By popular demand, it’s back to Las Vegas for the biggest, best show of the year. Thousands of dealers and their employees, vendors, manufacturers, and other automotive professionals are flocking to the Entertainment Capital of the World for the 2016 National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Convention & Expo. The wait for this year’s NADA has been longer than ever to accommodate the venue switch to Vegas, but it’s sure to be worth it.
Expect this year’s convention to feel celebratory, coming on the heels of an all-time record sales year in 2015, with more than 17.4 million light-vehicle sales topping the previous peak year, 2000. Sales have been brisk to date in 2016, with forecasts suggesting another record-breaking year for new vehicle sales. Business, for the most part is good, but everybody attending the convention wants it to be even better.
That’s where the NADA Convention comes in. From workshops to franchise meetings, roundtables to networking, general sessions to exhibitor booths—and much more—the convention offers a Vegas-style smorgasbord of ways for automotive professionals to learn, share ideas, and connect.
Many of the discussions at NADA will involve technology in one form or another. The business of selling new vehicles is a perfect breeding ground for innovative technology solutions, and 2016 promises to showcase some of the most dazzling yet. Expect to see major advancements in leading-edge technologies such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence alongside an increasingly sophisticated array of tools and services for all aspects of a dealership’s business.
To help you know which booths are a must to check out at the exhibition, we’re featuring six Must-See Vendors on the following pages—companies that you owe to yourself to check out in the Expo Hall. These companies will be happy to demonstrate how their products and services will improve your dealership operations and increase revenue.
Don’t forget to come see us our Dealer Marketing Magazine booth in the North Hall, Booth #5973. In a relaxing, lounge-like setting, we’ll be handing out copies of the magazine, providing free digital subscriptions, hosting a contest to win a free two-month communication services package from Recall Masters, and unveiling our new auto dealership training portal, DealerTrainingHUB.com.
