Early-Bird Registration Discount for NADA Convention Ends Sept. 14
McLEAN, Va. (Sept. 12, 2012) -- New-car dealers and their managers planning to attend the NADA Convention and Expo in Orlando, Fla., in February are encouraged to register by Friday, Sept. 14, to take advantage of early-bird registration rates—a $100 discount off the onsite rate.
“Dealers should also register in advance to book the hotel rooms of their choice,” said Mark Scarpelli, chairman of NADA’s convention committee. “With several conferences running at the same time in Orlando next February, hotel rooms will fill up quickly.”
Six out of 21 NADA convention hotels have already sold out. They include the Westin, Hilton, Peabody, Embassy Suites, JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton. The Rosen Center is nearly sold out.
The 96th annual NADA convention will be held at the Orange County Convention Center from Feb. 8-11, 2013. The American Truck Dealers (ATD) Convention and Expo will once again run concurrently with NADA.
Keynote speakers include John Krafcik, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America; inspirational speaker Mark Kelly, space shuttle commander of Endeavour’s final mission; NADA Chairman Bill Underriner; and incoming NADA Chairman David Westcott.
Dealers will have an opportunity to meet face-to-face with top automaker executives at 26 dealer franchise meetings to discuss their marketing plans, sales outlook and new product launches.
NADA University will be offering a total of 58 different workshops for car and truck dealers and their managers, including 27 new speakers and 20 new workshop topics.
More than 500 companies are expected to exhibit on the expo floor.

The NADA Story
The NADA story began in 1917 when 30 auto dealers traveled to the nation’s capital to convince Congress not to impose a luxury tax on the automobile. They successfully argued that the automobile is a necessity of American life, not a luxury. From that experience was born the National Automobile Dealers Association. Today, NADA represents nearly 16,000 new-car and -truck dealers, with 32,500 franchises, both domestic and international. For more information, visit www.nada.org.
