TORRANCE, Calif. — Organizers of the annual Dealers’ Choice Awards have announced that voting for the 2017 program will close at midnight tomorrow, April 19. Dealers and dealership personnel, including F&I professionals, are encouraged to recognize their favorite third-party service providers and auto finance sources by participating in an online survey.
“We have had a tremendous response to this year’s survey, and I want to thank everyone who has taken a few moments to recognize your industry partners,” said David Gesualdo, publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “Every vote counts, and if you have yet to participate this year, or ever, I urge you to jump in today.”
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.
Winning companies will earn first-place Diamond, second-place Platinum and third-place Gold awards. Winners will be announced May 17 and 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.
