BHPH United Show Draws Over 400

By Staff Writer May 06, 2024

More than 400 attendees made up of buy-here pay-here dealers from across the country attended the 3rd Annual BHPH United Summit, last month at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, for an immersive three days of dealer-to-dealer education, training, and networking without the usual vendor trade show and sales pitches.

“This year’s BHPH United Summit was the best yet,” said Mike Downey, president of Auto Master Systems. “We had record attendance in terms of total attendees – more than 400 strong – as well as first-time attendees. We were thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive feedback from this year’s event, and plans are underway for next year’s Summit with even more educational opportunities for the BHPH dealer community.”

The education sessions were developed by the BHPH United Dealer Advisory Board made up of BHPH dealers of various sizes from across the country. Classes were primarily dealer led and fell into one of four tracks: Sales; Underwriting/Collections; Inventory/Recon/Service; and Financial & Human Management. And the Summit again featured an educational track for Spanish-speaking attendees – an industry first – which was well-attended and will continue to be incorporated into future Summits. The agenda was capped each day by a dealer-led open forum session, moderated by BHPH dealers and co-hosts of the Independent Dealer Podcast Luke Godwin and Jeff Watson during which dealers shared their insights into the marketplace

Planning is already underway for next year’s Summit, which will also be held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas April 22-24, 2025.
