NABD Announces Orlando

BHPH Conference October 23 – 25, 2017


HOUSTON, TEXAS – The National Alliance of Buy Here Pay Here Dealers (NABD) today announced its 14th Annual Buy Here, Pay Here (BHPH) Conference in Orlando, Florida at the Rosen Centre. The Conference theme is “Opportunity Knocks – Best Ways to Respond.”

President and founder Ken Shilson indicated, “The last 24 months have been extremely challenging for BHPH operators, but better days are head!” Increased competition, plus higher operating and compliance costs, have combined to reduce profits and BHPH market share, Shilson explained. However, competition is declining and former BHPH customers will reenter the finance market when they default on vehicles they bought from the competition. This Conference will address ways to regain market share, find capital, avoid compliance mistakes, and reconnect with the best customers - as well as underwriting and collection best practices that work in the current environment.

The program begins on Monday, Oct. 23 with a First Timer Reception at 1:00 PM and ends at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 25 to facilitate return travel. Featured speakers include Richard Flint, Steve Siebold, DJ Harrington, Ingram Walters, Ken Shilson, and other experts who will provide important tips and insights to help attendees succeed. “Their messages will benefit attendees long after the Conference ends,” Shilson explained. “NABD will post an agenda on our website at, and more details are available by calling (832) 767-4759.”

The Conference will feature a “sold out” exhibit hall to facilitate networking between experts and attendees. Anyone interested in exhibiting should call (832) 767-4759 as exhibit sales are currently underway and exhibitor space is limited.

Rosen Centre is conveniently located just minutes from the Orlando airport and was recently voted one the 75 best meeting hotels in America. Recently renovated, it offers the ideal facilities for this Conference. NABD has negotiated discounted room rates of $179 per night, with no resort fees, to make it affordable for everyone. Conference registration discounts are also available for attendees who make their room reservations and register for the Conference before Sept. 22. Visit or call (832) 767-4759 to register or for more information.
