Bank of the West is a bronze sponsor for the RVDA Expo

FAIRFAX, Va. – RVDA announced that Bank of the West is a Bronze Partner of the 2015 RV Dealers International Convention/Expo, Nov. 2 -6 at Bally’s in Las Vegas. The convention is sponsored by RVDA–The National RV Dealers Association, RVDA of Canada, and the Mike Molino RV Learning Center.

“Partners like Bank of the West, with their strong commitment to industry education, allow dealers to build a staff that is professional, educated, and ready to compete in a growing industry,” said RVDA Convention/Expo Committee Chairman Ron Shepherd of Camperland of Oklahoma. “Without the support of our partners, we could not create an affordable and relevant learning opportunity like the convention/expo.”

Bank of the West’s Michael Lax, senior vice president, consumer finance sales and marketing, said, “RVDA’s important and valuable services strengthen RV dealerships and the industry as a whole. Bank of the West is committed to supporting RVDA’s programs and is proud to continue our long time tradition of sponsoring RVDA’s annual convention.”

The convention theme is Passport to Excellence: Education & Training. The 2015 RV Dealers International Convention/Expo is your ticket to a week of training, education, networking, and leadership development for the entire dealership staff. Low Early Bird registration rates are available online at the convention website. Dealer members who register by June 30, 2015 pay only $599 to attend and lock in the early bird rate of $549 for the rest of their staff—even those who register at later dates.

The week starts with Vendor Training +Plus on Monday and Tuesday and includes a general session, educational and networking programs for Young Executives, and track workshops designed to address the leading issues facing every department in the dealership. In addition, the Society of Certified RV Professionals will head into its second year with an event featuring recognitions, an education component, and networking opportunities.

Track workshops, condensed into shorter timeframes are being developed to respond to dealer demand for fast-paced, on target, and engaging presentations. In its planning, the convention committee focuses on dynamic presentations of the most current topics and strives to bring new presenters to the convention.

Guest rooms at the convention rate are available at Bally’s and Paris.

The 2015 convention will also feature two exhibit halls filled with RV industry companies offering products and services to help dealers improve profitability.
