The DrivingSales Executive Summit (DSES) is the exclusive automotive event, laser-focused on dealers and cutting-edge dealership operations. Attended by the most successful and innovative dealership owners, managers and directors in the country, the DSES provides a venue for executive teams to collaboratively learn, become inspired, and plan for the coming year. World-renowned speakers, presenters, and panelists from inside and outside the industry fill the Executive Summit agenda which is designed to educate, inspire and foster innovative planning and problem solving within dealerships. Year after year, attendees of the DrivingSales Executive Summit rave about the actionable information they received, and brilliant plans they produced and subsequently put into place.
Why should you come?
We designed DSES to be a very practical conference – a true summit where dealership executive teams can create an actionable business plan. The topics and speakers are selected by dealer attendees. This ensures timely and relevant topics and the highest quality speakers. The agenda is not sponsor driven, it is dealer driven. This year, we're teaming up with the J. D. Power and Associates Internet Roundtable to further integrate our dealer-driven event with manufacturer focus of JDPA, featuring a joint keynote to close out DSES and kick off the JDPA Internet Roundtable.
Who should come?
The summit is packed with movement and innovation by mingling genius professionals from outside the auto industry with those within automotive. We intersperse contests that challenge dealers and vendors alike (all in the name of innovation in the dealership). At DSES, you can find everything from a 30,000-foot view of media and economic trends that are just starting to touch the industry; a 15,000-foot view, with leading dealership innovators demonstrating how they have incorporated these trends into working strategies that are driving sales at the dealership level; right down to the 10-foot dealership view with peer-to-peer strategy round table sessions on how to implement specific aspects of these new strategies. The program will inspire you and leave you with a strategic plan to drive measurable results at your store.
To keep the event intimate, a limited number of seats are available. DSES sold out last year with standing room only and fire marshals were called (oops!). To ensure that there are enough seats for everyone interested in attending, registrants are free to cancel their registration with a full refund, minus a $100 processing fee, prior to August 21, 2012. Following this date, you can still cancel your registration for a 50% refund until midnight on October 20, 2012. No refunds are given after October 20, 2012. Alternatively, all cancellations can be used as credit toward the following year’s DSES event. If you are not able to attend, you may transfer your seat to someone else; registration substitutions are permitted.
