• ARC Conference 2017 Expo Hall

Running a dealership is hard, and we get that. You want to convert and shift inventory as much as possible, so you can’t imagine taking time away from the lot in order to attend some conference. There must be more in it for you than to stay in a gorgeous hotel, attend swanky fêtes and kick back with a few cocktails.

Luckily for you, reasons abound as to why you should take the time to attend the 2018 Auto Remarketing Canada Conference. Here’s just a quick sample.

You attend for free.

We really like for dealers and dealership employees to come to AR Canada Con. We’re so serious about it that we provide you with passes to attend the conference free of charge (you still must pay for your own accommodations, however). While it’s definitely not the only reason to attend, it certainly sweetens the pot. Just email our Dealer Coordinator Lisa McGraw today at lmcgraw@cherokeemediagroup.com to see if you’re eligible.

We cater to both independent and franchise dealers.

There’s a wealth of difference between franchise and independent dealerships. We’re fully aware of those myriad quirks. To that end, AR Canada Con is the only premier conference in Canada to offer content and workshops relevant to both the indies and the flagship dealers. Whether you’re a big fish or a smaller specialist, we celebrate you and want to offer you actionable strategies and solutions to make your dealership succeed.

Three content tracks focus on topics relevant to you.

You’ve got to be a jack of all trades, aspiring to master them all, in order to effectively run your business. At AR Canada Con, we’ve isolated three different content tracks — Remarketing & Fleet, Retail and Auto Finance — and fill them with excellent presentations from top-tier speakers. With these three concurrent blocks of sessions, you’ll be able to choose the topics that fit best with your needs and interests, no matter which event they fall under, with no additional registrations needed.

General sessions build relationships throughout the industry. You don’t work in a bubble, so our content won’t confine you to one. Our agenda this year features sessions that bring together attendees from all three tracks to provide insights and information applicable across the spectrum of the used-car industry and throughout the lifecycle of the used vehicle. You’ll have the opportunity to network and interact with executives from across the broader pre-owned industry, strengthening existing relationships and building new ones.

We’ve built in networking and downtime. We recognize you’re not going to leave your dealership for two days just to grab a couple of free drinks and lounge by the waterfront. Our networking breaks afford you time to rub elbows between sessions, connecting with new partners and catching up with old friends. On the other hand, after long stretches of thought-provoking conversations and sessions, you’re probably going to want a little downtime. We deliver on that front too, ensuring that you’re well taken care of with plenty of time to wind down and network with colleagues in the evenings.

You’re dedicated to bettering your dealership. You recognize that continuing education is vital to the ongoing success of your business. Join us this March to advance your dealership, educate your employees and connect with others in the industry.

The 2018 Auto Remarketing Canada Conference will be held March 27–28 at the Westin Harbour Castle in downtown Toronto. Contact our Dealer Coordinator Lisa McGraw today at lmcgraw@cherokeemediagroup.com to claim your free VIP registration to Canada’s leading used-car conference event of the year.
