NAAA Convention & National Remarketing Conference Join Forces!

The newly combined meeting known as the National Remarketing Conference/NAAA Convention is a big win for those involved in the auto auction and remarketing industries. With business travel claiming an ever-growing piece of budgets, both sides see this partnership as one that will benefit the entire industry by saving time and money.

NRC and NAAA see this partnership as a natural fit for everyone concerned and together we are developing one ‘must attend’ event where industry professionals can concentrate their networking. One registration fee will give those who normally attend NAAA convention but not NRC the opportunity to make new connections outside their current network, and the same is true in reverse.

The NRC/NAAA agenda will feature the traditional NAAA Convention schedule in combination with NRC’s curated educational sessions addressing the most pressing issues impacting the industry. Workshops, panel discussions and keynote presentations will feature thought leaders and industry experts covering:

  • Data analysis of current market conditions and forecasting future trends
  • Opportunities and challenges of adapting new technologies
  • Economic trends facing the American used car industry
  • The changing demographics of the auction and remarketing workforce
  • Market pressures caused by an increasing supply of used vehicles

Participants will be immersed in big ideas and in-depth data that will spark discussions on how to best implement cutting-edge solutions to spur success for individual business and the industry as a whole.
