Re3 takes place in the middle of Used Car Week.
Starting with the CPO Dealer Forum presented by AutoTrader.com, Used Car Week gets underway with an event designed specifically for dealers.
This intensely educational two-day gathering — held Nov. 12–13 — will shine the spotlight on the certified pre-owned industry. The nation’s top dealers will share their on-the-lot experiences with selling, pricing, sourcing and marketing their certified pre-owned vehicles.
Attendees will have opportunities to ask questions, share best practices and start conversations with dealers from across the country, leaving the event with fresh new actionable ideas for maximizing profits in their certified pre-owned sales.
Used Car Week will wrap with the National Remarketing Conference presented by SmartAuction from Nov. 14–16.
NRC — Used Car Week’s flagship event — is now in its 13th year, and it remains at the leading edge of the remarketing industry.
The NRC session is all part of the Used Car Week conferences, which are being held at The Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz., from Nov. 12 through 16.
For three days, NRC attendees will be immersed in the big ideas, market insights and in-depth conversations that will shape the future of remarketing.
Whether they happen on the golf course or in the general session room, during a networking event or a small-group discussion, the dialogues sparked during the National Remarketing Conference will lead to solid results for your business.
Plus, an evening networking reception shared between Re3 and National Remarketing Conference attendees will offer an exceptional opportunity to continue discussions and connect with the broader industry.
Attendees can obtain an early-bird discount to all of these events through Oct. 15.
