TYSONS, Va. — The National Automobile Dealers Association has confirmed the dates and locations of its next five NADA Shows, including a return to Dallas in 2023. The massive annual event includes keynote speakers, educational workshops, dealer franchise meetings, and an exhibit hall stocked with hundreds of exhibitors and numerous networking opportunities.
The four-day 2019 NADA Show will begin Jan. 24 at San Francisco’s newly renovated Moscone Center. Thousands of U.S. new-car dealers and their managers — including dealers from 38 countries — automaker executives, exhibitors, and media will convene in the City by the Bay, which has hosted the NADA Show 16 times since 1949.
“We’re encouraging more dealership managers to attend the upcoming show, which offers numerous career development opportunities, such as the educational workshops and training sessions, including the new NADA Professional Series training program designed specifically for new and high-potential dealership managers,” said Annette DiLorenzo Thayer, chairman of the NADA Show committee.
Future NADA Show dates include:
- 2020: Las Vegas (Feb. 14–17)
- 2021: New Orleans (Jan. 21–24)
- 2022: Las Vegas (March 10–13)
- 2023: Dallas (Jan. 26–29)
- 2024: Las Vegas (Feb. 2–5)
“NADA’s board of directors has decided to add Dallas back to the list of cities that host the NADA Show,” said Steve Pitt, NADA senior vice president of conventions and expositions, noting that the convention was held in Dallas in 1992 and 1995. “Dallas is now one of the top five convention cities in the country. The convention center has expanded. Economic development has revitalized the downtown area with new hotels, restaurants, and entertainment districts.”
