NEW ORLEANS — Industry Summit organizers issued a reminder to perspective attendees that the 2019 event, scheduled for Nov. 4–6 in New Orleans, has a special discounted registration rate that expires this Friday, Oct. 4. The event’s hotel room block will also close at this time.
Attendees who register by Friday will be entered into a drawing to win a two-day and three-night hotel stay at Industry Summit.
Attendees who register by Oct. 4 will receive the $100 discounted rate. The first 100 active auto dealers and dealership general managers who register for this year’s event online with promo code F&I100 will receive their full show pass for no charge.
All attendees who register by midnight on Friday will be entered into a drawing to win a two-day and three-night hotel stay at the New Orleans Marriott during Industry Summit.
In addition to all Industry Summit, Compliance Summit, and P&A Leadership Summit sessions; networking opportunities, meals and receptions in the exhibit hall, the Technology Challenge, and for the first time, an educational tract dedicated to reinsurance, purchasing a full show pass also grants access to “Ask Frenchy” and the Industry Summit Honors, including Dealer of the Year.
Ahead of the event, attendees are encouraged to submit objections or questions for the “Ask Frenchy” contest. “Ask Frenchy” is sponsored by IAS and hosted by the company’s vice president of sales and veteran F&I trainer Eric “Frenchy” Mélon. The contest invites F&I managers and directors to share the most challenging objection or question posed to them by a customer.
Five finalists will be selected to participate in a live training session and competition at Industry Summit; each will be offered free registration and accommodations at the New Orleans Marriott.
If you have not yet submitted nominations for the 2019 Dealer of the Year award, hosted by American Financial & Automotive services, you can do so at the link below. Dealers and F&I professionals may nominate their own dealerships or groups or be nominated by a third party.
Up to six F&I Pacesetters are selected each year and invited to attend Industry Summit. Each will be recognized individually during the awards ceremony before the F&I Dealer of the Year winner is announced and asked to address the audience.
