What is the Forum?

It’s a whole new way to sell your products & services

The Dealership Executive Forum is a entirely new kind of selling event, designed specifically for you to connect with the business leaders at dealer groups and multi-location dealers. It’s not a trade show. It’s an intimate, private “selling retreat,” where you and your new customers talk business in a relaxed, productive setting.

The Forum accepts just 50 select dealership executives for two action-packed days of intimate, peer-to-peer resort networking.

In small group meetings, one-on-one dialogues and at dinners, events, even golf, you’ll share, demonstrate and sell your solutions for the automotive retail business. You’ll do it with an audience of 50 hand-selected, pre-qualified buyers who’ve told us they want to see what you have to sell. And you ‘ll do all this with no booths, no drayage, no hassles, at the number one golf resort in Texas.

Walk in know exactly who wants what you offer.

We do an exhaustive screening of each dealer executive chosen to attend. So we know who’s buying new software, who’s remodeling showrooms, who’s ready for a new marketing solution. And we share all that information with you. Before you even get on the plane to come to The Forum, you’ve selected your best prospects based on their requests to see you. You arrive with a complete agenda of scheduled appointments with people who are interested in your offer.

It’s focused, it’s productive, it’s logical.

This approach makes sense. Which is why Forum vendors say, over and over: “This is so much better than standing around at a trade show!” Your time at The Forum is spent in front of real buyers with real buying plans. You know exactly who you’ll meet and exactly what they want to buy. You’ll present your products in small group meetings and one-on-one appointments. It’s a quiet environment that beats the hectic din of a tradeshow floor. And, you’ll build relationships with dealers during two days of meals, events, fun events and more. It’s the right way to get to know your customers.

Also, it works!

We’re proud to say our past Forum events in other fields, like car & truck fleets, facilities, technology, and retail have generated millions of dollars in sales for our clients. Sales that our customers tell us they can trace back directly to the conversations they had at The Forum. Of course, as they say in the ads, past performance is no guarantee of future results, and your mileage may vary. But if you just think about this method versus what you’re probably doing now, it’s pretty clear that The Forum is a better way. Finding the right buyers and getting in front of them is what selling is all about, and that’s exactly what happens at The Forum.
