2014-02-19 NABD 2014: “Your Highway to Buy Here, Pay Here Success”

Houston, Texas – The National Alliance of Buy Here, Pay Here Dealers (NABD) today announced that it will host its 16th Annual Buy Here, Pay Here (BHPH) Conference at Wynn Las Vegas on May 20-22, 2014. This is the industry’s largest BHPH Conference and trade show.

Ken Shilson, CPA and founder of NABD, explained, “The 2014 National Conference will focus on all the latest industry developments, trends, benchmarks, compliance and other important industry changes since last year. In addition, the trade show this year will be the largest in BHPH history and will include all the newest products and services to make attendees more successful. Last year, approximately 1,800 attendees participated in the 2013 National Conference and Dealer Academy, together making them the largest used car event in the automotive industry,” Shilson said.

Rick Hackett, who most recently served as an Assistant Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) over the Installment and Liquidity Group -- with regulatory authority governing BHPH -- will be a keynote speaker on Wednesday, May 21. In addition, the Wednesday session will feature Joel Winston, former Assistant Director of the Federal Trade Commission where he was responsible for government relations and corporate compliance over advertising, privacy, and financial services law. Nationally recognized attorneys Tom Hudson and Terry O’Loughlin will join Mr. Hackett and Mr. Winston during an interactive session entitled, “The CFPB, the FTC, the Attorneys General, and You”. The interactive format will allow attendees to obtain answers to their questions and receive insights into compliance matters of critical importance.

In addition, the program includes sessions covering collection best practices, recoveries, payment devices, finding capital, internet websites, online marketing, integrated technology solutions, add-on products, IRS updates and audit issues, and much more. Visit the NABD web site at for more information and updates.

Other sessions will focus on the increased competition from special finance, updated industry benchmarks and trend information, and a panel with several of the nation’s most successful operators who will discuss their best practices.

The Exhibit Hall this year features more than 130 exhibitors including capital, technology, add-ons, compliance, CPA’s, marketing, the internet, and other products and services which increase profitability and cash flow. Anyone interested in exhibiting should call Keith at (832) 767-4759 while space remains available.

The National Conference will be preceded by a BHPH Compliance Academy on May 18-20 also at the Wynn; NABD has secured unprecedented discount room rates of $189 per night with no resort fees for reservations using the group code, “NABD2014” prior to April 18, while supplies last. The room block is filling fast due to the exceptional room discounts and because Las Vegas is very busy during that week.

Register for the Conference online at or by calling (832) 767-4759.

The Wynn venue, several important new industry developments, and exceptional BHPH profit opportunities ahead make this event a “must-attend” for everyone who wants to operate successfully in 2014 and beyond. Hence, the Conference theme this year is “Your Highway to Buy Here, Pay Here Success”.

In addition, NABD will host other upcoming BHPH training events as follows: BHPH Boot Camp in Charlotte, NC on March 28-29, and a Compliance Academy in Las Vegas May 18-20. For more information and updates on these events visit the NABD web site at or call (832) 767-4759. Space at each is limited.
