Thank you for your interest in contributing to the Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition by providing your professional expertise and recommendations by serving on our Advisory Panel!
// Conference Overview
The Digital Dealer Conference & Expo is where automotive professionals go to stay ahead of the technology curve, delivering the largest array of industry speakers, peer to peer opportunities, and exhibit hall offerings – all carefully designed to impart groundbreaking business and digital strategies for dealerships.
Automotive digital marketing is all about strategy and becoming familiar with new technology. Using analytics to drive web traffic, expanding automotive industry knowledge among dealership employees, and investigating current leadership/management approaches are all imperative elements in remaining a lucrative dealership. Our conference is designed to provide digital automotive marketing education to elevate dealership performance and increase ROI throughout all departments. Our educational program features more than 100 sessions in a wide range of categories.
// About the Advisory Panel
The Digital Dealer Advisory Panel is comprised of dealers and managers from stores across the United States, as well as experts in the digital marketing space (participation on the panel is confidential and members remain anonymous). We know that those working in a dealership, understand the current challenges and opportunities facing the automotive industry better than anyone else, because they see them, day-in and day-out. In an effort to continuously improve our educational program at the Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition, we are looking to expand our Advisory Panel with more members from dealerships (across all departments – BDC, Fixed Ops, F&I, Marketing, Management, Sales, Pre-Owned, etc.).
Functions of the Advisory Panel
We receive a large number of proposals for each event, and with limited session spots in each category, we rely heavily on the feedback from our Advisory Panel to select the proposals that are most relevant and beneficial to the dealership audience The Digital Dealer Advisory Panel does not serve in an official decision-making capacity, but their recommendations and advice are taken into strong consideration by our staff.
Our Advisory Panel is asked to log-in to our online grading platform on a weekly basis and independently review speaking proposals from applicants interested in presenting educational sessions at the Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition. Some of our dealership advisory members review all proposals, whereas some focus only on the specific categories that align with their area of expertise.
// Why Participate on the Advisory Panel?
Serving on the Digital Dealer Advisory Panel is your opportunity to positively contribute to the automotive industry by providing insight and recommendations that progress our educational program for dealerships. Your feedback could be directly responsible for bringing an educational agenda to life that helps a struggling dealership learn how to better use technology and digital marketing to become more efficient, dominant in their market, and protected against threats/obstacles facing their store. With the changing nature of the automotive industry, even top-performing dealerships need to rely on Conference education to stay abreast of new technology, strategies and best practices so they can ensure a long future for their business.
Another benefit to serving on our Advisory Panel is that you will learn a great deal of information for your own position and/or dealership through the review process. Many of our dealership panel members have said that as they review the proposals, it often sparks new ideas or leads them to brush up on best practices, and implement/refine processes in their own store.
