As Content Director, I admit, my primary focus is on the AR Canada 2019 educational sessions — making sure we have the best trainers, experts, and leaders across the industry to bring our attendees crucial information for your businesses in the year ahead. (ICYMI: The agenda was released earlier this month! Check it out.)
Part of the reason we are able to bring together such an impressive group of dealer trainers and remarketing experts is because of our industry sponsors. The AR Canada 2019 event is brought to you by CARFAX Canada and TradeRev, our presenting sponsors. And our track (Auto Finance, Remarketing/Fleet, and Retail) sponsors are also key to the event’s success. This year our Auto Finance track is sponsored by Scotia Dealer Advantage, our Retail Track is brought to you by Kijiji Autos, and our Remarketing/Fleet track is presented by RVI Group.
While I’ve been busy helping to craft the agenda and making sure the content is worth your time, other members of the AR Canada events team has been making sure you get to have a little fun while your staying at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto later this month, as well! (I mean, it can’t all be about work, can it?)
Early Bird Registration has been extended through Friday, March 1! Register now and Save!
And as part of making sure AR Canada’s celebrations and receptions are top of the line, we also look to our partners and industry sponsors — including some of the leading names in remarketing.
AR Canada, presented by CARFAX Canada and TradeRev, simply wouldn’t be AR Canada without the chance to recognize your peers’ achievements in the industry. For example, as we kick the event off on Tuesday, we will be honoring individuals across the used-car industry during our Used Car Awards luncheon. This event will feature the following awards:
- Franchised Dealer of the Year, sponsored by TradeRev
- Independent Dealer of the Year, sponsored by DealerSocket
- CPO Dealer of the Year, sponsored by NCM Associates
The IARA Awards will also be presented at the luncheon, sponsored by the International Auto Remarketers Alliance, and including: Remarketer of the Year, Remarketer on the Rise, and Industry Icon.
Fast forward to Wednesday, when at 11 a.m. Vincentric will be presenting the Best CPO Value in Canada awards. Further, at noon on that same day, attendees will get the chance to honor the 2019 class of Remarketing’s Under 40, sponsored by EBlock.
On top of numerous networking breaks and opportunities to make connections, we also host two evening receptions during the event. Don’t miss the opening night reception, scheduled for 4 p.m. And the closing reception will follow a closing keynote from UnityWork’s Phil Sura.
There’s still time to get your name on the attendee list before the pre-event list goes live in early March. Register now and save $100, or $300 when compared with on-site registration!
