TORRANCE, Calif. — Organizers of the annual Dealers’ Choice Awards have announced that voting for the 2017 program is open now and will close April 19. Winners will be announced May 17.

“For the past 12 years, the Dealers’ Choice Awards has helped recognize the industry partners who help dealers succeed in every area of their operations,” said David Gesualdo, publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “I know how much these awards mean to these companies, and I encourage every dealer to take a moment to recognize their hard work.”

Voting for the Dealers’ Choice Awards is open only to dealers and dealership personnel. Each voter will complete an online survey. Voters are welcome to recognize any third-party vendor, service provider or finance source that competes in any of 34 categories. Voters who complete at least five categories will be eligible to win one of two Amazon Fire HD 7 tablets. There is no cost to participate.

Dealers and dealership personnel who wish to complete the survey can do so by clicking here.

Winning companies will earn first-place Diamond, second-place Platinum and third-place Gold awards. The winners will be listed in a special awards section in the July 2017 issue of Auto Dealer Today.

Winners also will be invited to accept their awards at a special ceremony at Industry Summit, which will be held Sept. 11–14, 2017, at the Gaylord Texan Resort Hotel & Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, near Dallas.
