NAMAD Holds Virtual Conference

By Staff Writer July 07, 2021 123

The National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers is partnering with vFairs to host a first-of-its-kind Virtual Mini-Conference, offering opportunities and support to minority auto dealers to help grow their businesses. The virtual event kicks off July 7, with additional sessions each Wednesday in July. and will be open throughout the month of July.

NAMAD's VNC will feature virtual panel sessions related to important auto industry topics ranging from “The Future of the Auto Industry to Electrification to Using Data as a Competitive Advantage.” Sponsors and vendors include automobile manufacturers and suppliers, financial companies that support the industry, and associated companies that regularly work with dealerships.

"These semi-live virtual sessions are unlike the endless video calls we've all been a part of since early 2020, as the Virtual Conference Center and Virtual Exhibit Hall settings you will experience represent the state-of-the-art in presentation and interactive technology," said Damon Lester, president of NAMAD.

The event aims to support auto dealers through education and networking, and to help the next generation of minority auto dealers in understanding current and future markets. Skill-building and scholarship opportunities are key points to be covered within the event. Closing out the conference will be the Diversity Volume Leadership Awards, a NAMAD/IHS Markit annual event that recognizes vehicle manufacturers who market their products directly to the ever-growing group of minority vehicle buyers.

The virtual speaking sessions, discussions, panels and exhibits will all be hosted on a user-friendly virtual platform powered by vFairs, which mimics an in-person event.
