HOUSTON, TEXAS –
The National Alliance of Buy Here, Pay Here Dealers (NABD) today announced the
successful completion of its Best Practices Conference held last week at the
fabulous Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, Florida. Operators from around
the United States and Canada attended the 3 day event with the theme “Best
Practices to Succeed Now.” The dual track program featured sessions on both
best practices and on compliance. “Approximately 60% of the attendees surveyed
had never been to an NABD conference previously,” said Ken Shilson, President
The conference opened with 14 different workshop sessions
covering: vendor compliance, recoveries, millennial marketing, new technology,
deal jacket compliance, reconditioning, F&I best practices, tax refunds,
payment devices, capital solutions, LHPH, and the latest accounting/tax
developments. All these workshops were interactive so attendees could ask
questions and get answers on all these important topics.
On Wednesday afternoon the general education sessions began
with a highly inspirational keynote presentation by Harris Rosen, owner of
Rosen Hotels and Resorts in Orlando. His keynote presentation was followed by
sessions covering: current developments, sourcing and financing inventory using
digital channels, and a benchmarks and trends update.
The event concluded on Thursday morning with sessions on
customer communications, an operating best practices dealer panel, a collection
best practices panel and presentation, and other highlights included a ‘First
Timer” reception with over 150 attendees and a “sold out” exhibit hall with
more than 70 exhibitors who offered all the latest products and services to
make attendees more profitable. The exhibit hall included two receptions,
coffees and a breakfast which enabled attendees to network with experts,
sponsors and their peers.
“Attendee evaluations unanimously indicated that the program
will help them succeed in 2017 and beyond,” said Shilson. “Our speakers and
sponsors did an outstanding job helping attendees achieve their learning
objectives!” Attendee and sponsor comments are posted at www.bhphinfo.com.
