MBA Insurance commits to RVDA Bronze sponsorship

FAIRFAX, Va. — The RV Dealers Association today announced that MBA Insurance is a Bronze-level partner for the 2014 RV Dealers International Convention/Expo, which takes place Nov. 10 to 14, at Bally’s on the Las Vegas Strip.

The convention is sponsored by the RV Dealers Association, RVDA of Canada, and the Mike Molino RV Learning Center.

“Without the support of our partners, we could not provide the high quality program of events and educational offerings for dealership staff,” said RVDA Convention/Expo Committee Chairman John McCluskey, of Florida Outdoors RV in Stuart, Fla. “We are proud to recognize MBA’s consistent and unwavering support as our partner in the premier dealership education event of the year.”

“MBA has always supported the efforts of the RVDA and the RV Learning Center,” said MBA President Bert Alanko. “We support the convention because it is the engine that drives the RVDA. Once a year dealers can come together in a spirit of unity of purpose.  That purpose is development of self, of business, of staff. The success of every business is dependent on the positive development of all facets.”

MBA offers RV and powersports rental insurance.  MBA also offers various insurance options, rental contracts, and the necessary forms.  MBA sponsors the RV Rental School, instructing dealers in how to succeed in the rental business.

To encourage dealers to bring more staff to the convention, the registration rate has been kept low, with discounts for additional staff and more opportunities to learn, through Vendor Training +plus.  RVDA also continues to offer helpful registration payment plans, including an easy pay plan of three payments and the ability to lock in early rates for additional employees with one paid convention registration.

Themed “Passport to Excellence: Education & Training,” the convention program has been enriched to reflect the importance of training and education for all dealership staff, with programs for young executives and a special emphasis on digital marketing and social media.

Back for a second year, Vendor Training +plus on Monday and Tuesday will offer more training opportunities, followed by track workshops for Dealer/GMs and managers in sales, service, parts, and rental operations.

The 2014 convention will feature an exhibit hall filled with the RV industry’s top companies offering products and services to help dealers improve profitability. In addition, RVDA’s Partners in Progress committees will meet to work on important dealer-manufacturer issues.
