Automotive Retail: Changing & Evolving Roles"

old friends at Advanta-STAR Bob
Handley and Michael Champagne.
These are really great guys with a
fantastic automotive information
company. They've been at it since the
beginning of the Digital Dealer Conference & Expo and I love catching
up with them. Another newcomer
was fusionZONE Automotive who
invited dealers to spin their wheel to
win cash on the spot. I heard that a
couple dealers hit the $1,000 prize. I
also enjoyed meeting the team from

ated their engagement and demo of
their automated reviews platform.
They reminded me how important
it is no matter if you're exhibiting
for the first time or the 25th time to
smile, listen, engage and to care.
I have a long list of friends who
work for companies that consistently
sponsor the Digital Dealer Conference and Expo. There's simply too
many to mention. I honestly appreciate their commitment and support
because it means they see value in
the opportunity to connect with new
and existing clients, but it also shows
their desire to support events that
benefit the industry they serve.
THE WORTH OF NETWORKING

BRIAN FINKELMEYER, director of business
development for Conquest at vAuto, presented
"All-New Metrics for New Car Success."

The networking opportunities
were abundant. From cocktail receptions in the Expo Hall to the happy
hours hosted by DealerOn and AutoLeadStar it was easy to find friends
and make new ones. The Arnold,
Joe and Shaun Karokethon took
over O'Shucks on Tuesday night.
This former underground event has
blossomed into popularity over the
years. It's now a true mash-up of
dealers, OEMs, and exhibitors having
a lot of fun together. On Wednesday
evening, the Digital Dealer party continued to offer attendee appreciation
and a wonderful environment for
building relationships and enjoying
good company.
