NEW ORLEANS — Organizers of the upcoming Industry Summit, in conjunction with P&A Leadership Summit, announced that this year’s event will feature the Technology Challenge, an interactive session featuring 10 rapid-fire presentations followed by an audience vote. Industry Summit 2019 will be held Nov. 4–6, 2019, at the New Orleans Marriott.
Show chair David Gesualdo said last year’s inaugural Technology Challenge was a hit among sales and F&I technology providers and a highlight for attendees.
“Technology Challenge is a competition in the truest sense of the word,” said Gesualdo, publisher of Bobit Business Media’s Dealer Group, which includes F&I and Showroom and Auto Dealer Today magazines. “Providers get a chance to demo their wares, and attendees get to recognize their favorites.”
Ten competitors will be hand-selected by Bobit publishers and editors for inclusion in this year’s Technology Challenge. Any dealer-facing technology provider is eligible, with a priority placed on new-to-market solutions. Companies are not charged to participate. The winner will be recognized in the special awards ceremony that will close the event on Wednesday, Nov. 6.
