NEW ORLEANS — Organizers of the 2019 Industry Summit have announced that the American Guardian Group of Companies’ vice president of training, Bob Harkins, will lead the Compliance Summit and P&A Leadership Summit portions of the Industry Summit agenda as the events’ emcee.

Compliance Summit will take place Nov. 4, 2019, and PALS will be held over the next two days, both at the New Orleans Marriott.

Harkins noted that, in tackling two different areas of the F&I industry, Compliance Summit and PALS have established themselves as cant-miss events for dealers, F&I managers, and members of the P&A segment.

“The importance of these events continues to grow with each passing year as trends evolve, regulations change and new products and services are introduced to the playing field,” said Harkins. “I am looking forward to leading the discussion once again.”

Although Industry Summit will be held in New Orleans for the first time, attendees can look forward to some familiar faces, and the value-added bonuses they have become accustomed to, organizers said. All attendees who purchase a full show pass will have the ability to attend any session within the Industry Summit, Compliance Summit, and PALS agendas, including Automotive Compliance Education’s review and certification.

“With his experience within the automotive industry, Bob is the ideal candidate to kick off the show on Monday and keep things rolling to Wednesday afternoon, through an array of different topics and speakers,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Bobit Business Media’s Dealer Group. “He has proven himself to be an invaluable resource in years past and we expect no different for 2019.”

More details about Industry Summit and PALS 2019, including agendas and registration will become available in the weeks ahead. To discuss sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, contact David Gesualdo via email or at 727-947-4027.
