2015 Automotive Summit: Franchise of the Future
The 2015 J.D. Power Automotive Summit (formerly known as the International Automotive Roundtable), which focuses on critical issues and solutions that impact current and future automotive operations, will kick off the annual NADA Convention.
Each year, J.D. Power conducts its U.S. Automotive Franchise Assessment, providing a comprehensive overview of how each of 32 franchises is performing in the U.S. market. The Summit is the only public setting where these Franchise Assessment results are revealed in their entirety. This information is unique and invaluable to anyone interested in the relative health and prospects for all of the new-vehicle franchises in the U.S. market. This year, the event will feature a select group of speakers and panelists to provide attendees with new insights into emerging trends in automotive retail. The Summit offers the opportunity to meet and network with key leaders who are shaping the future in this rapidly-changing sector of the industry. If you are interested in the latest insights and analysis of the automotive industry, this is a must-attend event. More than 600 industry professionals attended the 2014 event, and participation is expected to increase in 2015.
Immediately following the Summit is the NADA Welcome Reception co-hosted by J.D. Power. Attendees registered for the Summit are automatically registered for the Welcome Reception, which promises to be the perfect kickoff to the NADA Convention & Expo 2015. In 2014, the NADA Welcome Reception attracted more than 1,500 attendees!
