Why you should attend the Digital Dealer Conference
The 20th annual Digital Dealer Conference and Expo is in Orlando, Florida, in January and brings expert advice and networking together for everything related to automotive dealerships and digital technology.
The event delivers the digital tools, education and peer contacts dealers need to solve problems, grow sales, increase customer retention and raise profits. It is the largest and most comprehensive event of its kind in the industry.
Headlining the event is a panel on best practice featuring host David Villa from the hit show Auto Dealer Live. Experts include Lasco Ford and Lasco Grand Blanc vice president Matt Lasco; Lakeside Ford, Winnsboro CDJR, Ville Platte CDJR and CarPros owner Brett Oubre; Brandon Honda owner John Marazzi; and Ricart Automotive executive Rick Ricart. Each will discuss their proven sales and business methods, sharing the industry’s best practices in areas such as how to effectively arm your salespeople, how to set prices, and following up leads and how to handle them.
Traditional and digital marketing in the spotlight

Gail, Nissan of Cookeville managing partner Michael Rezi and Miller Ad Agency chief executive officer Erik Radle. The panel will offer the top ten trends in marketing to keep an eye out for in 2016, including how ad blockers will impact the digital space, the shift from a “social strategy” to social as a channel, the importance of secondary search engines, and human behavior and the emergence of digital “wearables.”
