The International Automotive Remarketers Alliance announced the sessions that will follow its Spring Roundtable at Caesars Palace on March 5.
Different IARA sessions held concurrent with the Conference of Automotive Remarketers will be hosted on March 6 and March 7.
Session moderators and participants include representatives from ARI, ADESA, America’s Auto Auction, Avis Budget, Element and the RVI Group.
In addition to Paul Seger, vice president of asset remarketing for Element, who will moderate a consignor-only session addressing issues that matter to consignors, industry leaders Doug Turner of America’s Auto Auction and Kurt Madvig of ADESA will discuss justifying reconditioning investments in an open to all attendees session.
IARA said the discussion will look at the key factors in optimizing reconditioning budgets to increase return on investment and defend the initial dollars invested.
During a panel discussion moderated by Rene Abdalah, senior vice president at RVI Group, participants will assess how it is more crucial for remarketers to monitor the market for changing residual values.
Additionally, IARA said co-presenters Andrea Amico, president of Jack Cooper Logistics, and Faye Francy, executive director at Auto-ISAC, will examine industry best practices to safeguard vehicles’ data and information in a session.
A full conference pass is $895 before Feb. 2. Following that day passes will be an additional $100.
