Final workshops cap a successful RV Dealers Con/Expo

LAS VEGAS, Nev. — The RV Dealers Convention/Expo at the Paris hotel in Las Vegas wrapped up on Friday with its final workshops on compliance issues facing dealers.

Convention attendance was the best in a decade, with more than 1,600 attendees, an increase of 16 percent over 2017.

“It was a terrific week and a real indicator of the dynamic state of RV retailing in the U.S. and Canada,” said RVDA President Phil Ingrassia.

The event featured six educational tracks covering key aspects of dealer operations, including sales, eMarketing, fixed operations, F&I, rental, and general management issues.   The expo floor held 170 exhibitors.

“Thanks to all the dealers, partners, sponsors, and exhibitors, for attending,” Ingrassia said.  “We look forward to getting their feedback on surveys next week to help the RVDA Convention/Expo Committee plan next year’s event.

The 2019 RV Dealers Convention/Expo will be held the week of Nov. 11 through 15 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
