2022 AADA Convention & Expo
Delayed to 2-3 June 2022

The Australian Automotive Dealer Association’s 2022 Convention & Expo at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre has been rescheduled until Thursday 2 and Friday 3 June 2022. The decision to reschedule has been made in consultation with our members, sponsors, and industry partners, and due to the significant staffing issues and operational impact that the COVID Omicron variant has presented for all businesses throughout Australia.

The AADA Convention & Expo is an important industry event that has provided Dealers a platform to ensure that their issues are heard. Our members face a range of threats in the immediate future, those include the ongoing challenges in the franchise relationship, skills shortages, new vehicle inventory supply, used vehicle supply, declining F&I revenues and regulatory oversight, these are all vital issues to new car franchised Dealers that will be covered at the 2022 AADA Convention & Expo.

“The safety of our members and their staff is our number one priority, and we believe rescheduling this very important event is in the best interest of our members, sponsors and industry stakeholders,” said AADA CEO James Voortman.

“The automotive industry is going through a period of significant change, and it is more important than ever that Dealers unite to address common challenges. The AADA Convention & Expo provides the perfect opportunity for the industry to come together and tackle some of these issues head on,” said Mr Voortman.

“The Secretariat and the Convention team will be working around the clock to deliver the first-class event that our members deserve,” he said.

The AADA Convention & Expo program will provide an engaging and comprehensive overview of the market, it’s strengths and weaknesses together with a detailed analysis of the issues affecting new car Dealers. The Convention also presents a world class expo of the latest products and services.  Registrations are open and group bookings are welcome Visit the AADA Convention Website to find out more.

We look forward to seeing you in June at the 2022 AADA Convention & Expo.
