LAS VEGAS — The publishers of Special Finance Insider and F&I and Showroom have announced that SFI’s Special Finance Conference, traditionally held each August in Dallas, will join the eighth annual F&I Conference and Expo at Industry Summit 2011 this September in Las Vegas.

Greg Goebel, publisher of SFI and Auto Dealer Monthly, is widely regarded as the nation’s leading special finance trainer. The Special Finance Conference’s educational slate is designed to offer an unrivaled subprime auto finance education. Goebel, along with experts from top finance companies and suppliers, offers instruction ranging from basic operations to advanced deal structuring, benchmarking and more.

“I am excited for our two companies to join forces in order to hold what should be the premier event in automotive finance — whether it be for prime or subprime credit,” Goebel said. “This absolutely guarantees there will be something for everyone — there is no way to come and not improve your business!”

David Gesualdo, show chair of Industry Summit and publisher of F&I and Showroom, agreed.

“The Special Finance Conference is, without a doubt, the leader in the subprime auto finance segment,” Gesualdo said. “We are honored to welcome Greg to Industry Summit 2011, and having SFC and FIC under one roof will indeed make this the premier event in our industry.” 

Industry Summit 2011, which also will include the annual Vehicle Service Contract Administrators Conference, will be held September 26–28, 2011, at the Las Vegas Hilton. Registration for all three shows is expected to open soon. Attendees can visit  to sign up for e-mail updates.
