The dates for the 10th Digital Dealer Conference in April 19-21, 2010 and is scheduled in Orlando Florida. You can register for the 10th Digital Dealer Conference at: http://www.digitaldealerconference.com.
The event will be well attended this year and we encourage you to attend. The 10th Digital Dealer Conference is not affiliated with the 2nd Annual Automotive Marketing Boot Camp.
Digital Dealer Marketing Education
We strongly encourage dealers to make a line item budget investment for digital marketing education. That budget should include sending employees to local, regional, and national conferences.
Every quarter new technology and marketing strategies are being created. Keep up with the latest opportunities for car dealers you need to attend. It is vital that at least one member of the organization attend the three top three conferences of the year.
PCG Conferences will ensure that you stay tuned with the latest success stories from your peers. That fact alone is reason why car dealers should ensure that they are sending key employees to these conferences. The data and collaboration from the events will present a return on investment over 10x in the next year.
