Mega Dealer News welcomes the automobile industry's top stakeholders to Las Vegas March 22-25 for the NADA Show 2018.
The National Automobile Dealers Association's annual convention is a chance for new car and truck dealers to come together with manufacturers and exhibitors to learn the industry's latest tools, tactics and trends.
This year's gathering, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, will include more than 120 educational sessions falling under eight learning tracks in traditional workshop settings, interactive sessions in The Studio, and peer-to-peer learning opportunities in The Exchange.
A Distinguished Speakers Series will include such notable guests as Harry Cohen, president of Entheos LLC, who will discuss motivating teams using compassion, vulnerability and authenticity; Culture that Rocks! author and former Hard Rock executive Jim Knight on changing your dealership's culture; retired NFL quarterback, entrepreneur and broadcaster Joe Theismann discussing how to succeed under pressure; and Mark O'Neil, chief operations officer and executive vice president of Cox Automotive discussing new approaches to data analytics.
Headlining this year's keynote addresses will be Nick Saban, head football coach for the University of Alabama; John Krafcik, CEO of Waymo LLC; and former Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill, author of The Operator: Firing the Shots That Killed Osama bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior.
Always a highlight, The NADA Show Expo this year will feature more than 700,000 square feet of exhibitions by more than 500 manufacturers and suppliers showcasing the hottest new products and technologies for the auto industry.
And, as always, dealers will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with top executives from all the major automakers at the numerous franchisee meetings while also networking with their peers at the many planned -- and unplanned -- gatherings around Sin City.
