It's that time of year again, and those of us in the automotive industry know I'm not just referring to the New Year! It's the final days before we travel out to San Francisco for the 2015 NADA Convention & Expo and as always we are looking forward to meeting up with our partners, friends and long-time clients. We will be based out of the Dominion Dealer Solutions booth at #1019S and happy to chat at the booth or meet up for a cup of coffee (on us)!
It looks like we have some interesting keynotes for this conference with Jay Leno, Jeb Bush, Dr. Beck Weathers, and some great presentations lined up from folks at Google, eBay, Facebook and Twitter.
I'll be traveling out this year with Jake Maki our General Manager, and Rick Schlang from our business development team and I'm excited for five days in town, for meetings and cruising the strip (the expo floor), and for meet ups and parties across town. San Francisco is a great city to visit and there are plenty of opportunities for our resident foodie (Jake) to track down some great eats. He has not steered us wrong yet...
On my last trip out to Las Vegas this fall - I logged 11 miles one day on my Fitbit - all inside the casino between the conferences. I think I'll be logging some nice mileage between the four buildings at the San Fran show as well as around the city, taking advantage of much warmer weather than where we are (north of Boston in Beverly MA)!
It's going to be a great trip, I say it every year, but it also proves to be true. Every year brings a wealth of stories and shared experiences, and the opportunity to meet with dealers and solutions providers that remind me of why I'm in this business and why there is no better place to be.
