NEW ORLEANS — Industry Summit organizers announced that IAS will host a giveaway at the 2019 event, scheduled for Nov. 4–6 in New Orleans. Ahead of the event, attendees are encouraged to submit objections or questions for the “Ask Frenchy” contest here.
“Ask Frenchy” is sponsored by IAS and hosted by the company’s vice president of sales and veteran F&I trainer Eric “Frenchy” Mélon. The contest invites F&I managers and directors to share the most challenging objection or question posed to them by a customer.
“No F&I-related topic is off limits. Keep submitting your questions,” said Melon. “We’ve received some exciting entries so far, and I’m looking forward to helping you overcome some of the toughest F&I objections. See you at the conference!”
Five finalists will be selected to participate in a live training session and competition at Industry Summit; each will be offered free registration and accommodations at the New Orleans Marriott.
The contest will continue running until Oct. 4, and winners will be notified by Oct. 11. Finalists must be available to travel to New Orleans Nov. 4–6 to participate.
Attendees who register by Oct. 4 will receive the $100 discounted rate. The first 100 active auto dealers and dealership general managers who register for this year’s event online with promo code F&I100 will receive their full show pass for no charge.
