In less than a week, starting Jan. 11, Dealer Week is going online! After a successful marine industry reunion in Austin, Texas, this past December, there will be another opportunity to engage with all that Dealer Week has to offer. Here are the things you won’t miss during Dealer Week Online.
1. The World-Class Education.
If you’ve attended Dealer Week in the past, you know that the Education Pathways are the bread and butter so to speak of the conference. Dealer Week in person offered 18 sessions and we are adding 9 brand new workshops to Dealer Week Online for a total of 27 educational opportunities for you and your team to learn from. This content will launch each day during Dealer Week Online and made available for replay until March 1, 2022.
“I always come expecting to get 10 times my investment back in one year. In 2022 I expect that I will achieve that by using Jordan Schoolmeester's formula on how to properly charge out our service advisor’s and service manager’s time per work order. If done properly we will experience a $100,000.00 increase in billed labor on the same amount of boats worked on.”
- Max Testa, Clark Marine
While there is a lot of benefit to face-to-face connection, we know that connection in any form is extremely beneficial to businesses like yours. There is so much to learn from dealers like yourself. During the sessions during Dealer Week Online, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in the chat function to brainstorm with other dealers. Outside of the sessions, you can follow up with dealers via private messaging. Don’t forget you can do the same with the partners from the online expo hall.
3. The Expo Hall
Again, if you’ve been to a Dealer Week conference, you know how expansive the Expo Hall is — with over a hundred industry partners, service providers, manufacturers and suppliers. You don’t lose that by participating online! You can click on “Exhibitor List” to view and visit company profiles. Interested in partnering with them or want to learn more? You can set up meetings to do so virtually!
“My goal was to visit with certain vendors, both those we currently do business with and those I was interested in learning more about, and I saw everyone I wanted to see.”
- Jeremy Anderson, Big Thunder Marine
All of these things are just the main events, we’ve got fun warm-ups to kick off each day, Thought Leader Presentations to close it out and even more scheduled for you — so you won’t want to miss out!
