As many in the automotive industry are preparing for taking some time off for the holidays, or if you’re a dealer you’re likely getting ready for holiday sales, the team at Cherokee Media Group is busy crafting an expert speaker lineup for the upcoming Auto Remarketing Canada event — Canada’s Used Car Conference.

The annual event, scheduled for March 19-20, 2019, brings together 500-600 attendees each year, around a quarter of which are comprised of franchised and independent dealers. Beyond auto dealers, the conference held at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto hosts professionals from across the used-car industry, including auction GMs, remarketers, consignors, auto finance professionals, digital marketers and more.

Since 2000, the AR Canada Conference has brought together key players in the Canadian auto remarketing industry to network and discuss a wide array of topics within three content tracks — Retail, Remarketing & Fleet and Auto Finance. Think topics like CPO, retail tech, used-vehicle supply trends, subprime lending, digital marketing and more.

And we are well into the planning phase of our agenda — in our opinion, content is what makes industry events like the stand out. Interested in speaking yourself? Our Call for Speakers will be open until December 5th.

As for what’s already on the docket for the March event, a focus of the team at AR Canada for 2019 is training. Think dealer training, sales training and more.

In fact, we will be hosting Toronto-based Alan Dickie, sales training expert and keynote speaker, know for his A.C.E. method (Attitude, Conviction and Energy).

We will also hear from automotive consultants like Jonathan Dawson, founder and president of sales training company Sellchology — which touts the “Selling through Psychology” philosophy.

Stay tuned for additions to what we think will be an impressive lineup of trainers and consultants.

Speaking of which, attendees will also be privy to a session from Deloitte Consulting’s Ryan Robinson. Robinson is the lead researcher supporting the global auto practice at Deloitte.

Also confirmed for the 2019 event is Andrew Thai, CEO at Motoinsight, a firm that delivers technological innovation that enhances the relationship between OEMs, dealerships and their consumers. Motoinsight works to help auto businesses allow their shoppers to “complete the entire purchase journey how they want, when they want.”

And this is just the beginning of what will be a two-day event packed with actionable insight, stats and analysis to improve your business and industry leading keynote speakers.

If you think this is the right audience for you. There’s still time to get your name on the AR Canada 2019 agenda.

Looking forward to seeing what you all have in mind for Auto Remarketing Canada 2019!
