The peak body representing franchised new car Dealers is pleased to announce the launch of the AADA 2019 National Dealer Convention & Expo, which will be held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre 9 – 11 September 2019.

The theme for the AADA 2019 National Dealer Convention & Expo is “2020 + Beyond – A Vision for Car Retailers” and will include a dedicated business program.

This AADA Convention program delivers on many fronts, including solutions on gender diversity, franchise relations, F&I operations and dealership ROI, which underpin a diverse workshop schedule, providing a vision for the operational demands of today’s car retailers. Special presentations by SpinCar Founder & CEO, Devin Daly, and NADA Executive Vice President & Chief Legal Counsel, Andy Koblenz, will feature throughout the event.

The AADA Expo will be accessible to all through a new Open Day initiative and provide sales staff with new skills through the Sales Team Event on Monday 9 September.

Special guests include The Hon. Adem Somyurek MLC, Minister for Local Government and Small Business, Australian of the Year Dr Richard Harris SC, OAM and former Governor General of Australia Sir Peter Cosgrove AK, MC.

“The AADA 2019 Convention is a critical industry event and dealers should make attending a high priority,” Mr Blackhall said.
