After AIS 2019, we received a lot of constructive and positive feedback from our over 230 attendees. Out of that feedback, I want to focus on one response vocalized from numerous AIS 2019 attendees in terms of the content that mattered the most to their businesses.

The dealer panel. The dealer panel. And … did we mention the North Carolina Automobile Dealers Association (NCADA) panel? That’s right. The 2019 NCADA-organized panel was led by  association President Bob Glaser, and included auto-retail leaders like Chris Vester, COO, Hubert Vester Auto Group; Erick Kirks, Marketing Director, Johnson Automotive; and Eric Flow, President of Management Services, Flow Automotive. And it was a big hit.

In 2019, a group of top dealers at AIS discussed what the onset of digital retail means for the auto dealership, how stores are evolving to suit consumer desires in this respect, and delved into  how dealerships are using fintech and AI to improve their customers experience inside and outside of the physical dealership.

This year, NCADA leadership and top-selling dealers will gather to tackle the challenges and opportunities of a new decade. The panel members will cut through the noise, and hone in on the biggest disruptive and/or innovative tech, solutions and changes in auto retail.

Attend the Auto Dealer keynote panel at AIS, scheduled for 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15th, to explore what’s next for the auto digital marketplace.
