About NADA

With more than a century of experience, NADA has worked to represent and further the interests of new-car dealerships. That is why every aspect of the NADA Show is designed to help dealers ‘win big at retailing’—from the franchise meetings and workshop sessions to shopping the Expo floor. There is something new and exciting for every member.

Ideas & Collaboration: Education

NADA Show 2018, to be held in Las Vegas, March 22-25, 2018, delivers the most comprehensive education program in the auto industry, with more than 120 sessions in eight tracks. Hear industry experts speak about important subjects at the workshops. Interact with peers on hot topics in the Exchange. Discuss solutions with facilitators in the Studio. Topics include employee hiring/retention, digital marketing, legal/regulatory overviews, fixed ops and much more.

Relationships: Networking

Network with peers, industry experts and exhibitors at all the events, from the opening reception – co-hosted by J.D. Power – to popular general sessions, receptions, supplier meetings and other gatherings.

OEM Connections: Franchise Meetings

NADA Show 2018 provides dealers and managers exclusive access to top automaker executives at each of the franchise meetings. This is a great opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities with the manufacturers.
