NEW ORLEANS — Organizers of Industry Summit announced today that, after the original room block sold out this past weekend, additional rooms have now been secured for attendees at a discounted rate of $209/night. The 2019 event is scheduled for Nov. 4–6 at the New Orleans Marriott.
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.
In addition to all Industry Summit, Compliance Summit, and P&A Leadership Summit sessions; networking opportunities, meals, and receptions in the exhibit hall, the Technology Challenge, and for the first time, an educational track dedicated to reinsurance. Purchasing a full show pass also grants access to “Ask Frenchy” and the Industry Summit Honors, including F&I Dealer of the Year and the Dealers’ Choice Awards.
Ahead of the event, attendees are encouraged to submit objections or questions for the “Ask Frenchy” contest. “Ask Frenchy” is sponsored by IAS and hosted by the company’s vice president of sales and veteran F&I trainer Eric “Frenchy” Mélon.
