Used Car Industry’s Premier Event – and Best Value – Returns to Las Vegas for Its 76th Edition

Arlington, Texas (Feb. 25, 2022) – It’s no secret that a dollar doesn’t go very far these days, especially in the used car business.

But the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association has a way for independent dealers to get plenty of bang for their buck – by attending the 2022 NIADA Convention and Expo.

Registration is now open for the 76th edition of the used vehicle industry’s premier event, back in its traditional June dates – June 20-23.

And for the first time since 2019, the Convention returns to Las Vegas at the MGM Grand’s recently expanded and upgraded convention space.

The Convention experience starts with the most extensive education agenda available for independent dealers, with more than 60 workshops, panel discussions and education sessions covering everything from sales, marketing and service to digital retailing, compliance, staffing – and much more. Not to mention quick-fire learning and hands-on demos in the Service Bay.

Dealers of all sizes and business models will come away with actionable ideas, innovative strategies and proven techniques provided by the industry’s top minds and most successful independent dealers.

And that’s just the beginning.

The Expo is the used auto industry’s ultimate marketplace, with hundreds of companies offering thousands of the latest, most innovative products and services to help make dealerships more efficient, productive and profitable.

The Finance Fair connects dealers looking for help finding financing for their customers or their business with the nation’s top lenders and capital providers to secure retail financing, floorplans, contract purchases or lines of credit.

And don’t forget the special events, receptions, unmatched networking and awards recognizing the best in the business, capped by the presentation of the National Quality Dealer award – NIADA’s highest dealer honor.

It all adds up to the best value in the used vehicle industry.

“I can’t tell you how many tips and ideas I’ve been able to take away from the Convention that I’m able to take back to the dealership and implement,” said Dan Johnson, owner and general manager of LiteHouse Auto in Lakewood, N.Y. “Things that have saved money, things that have made money, policy changes that have made us operate more efficiently and smoothly.”

The ROI gets even better for dealers who register early.

Register by March 17 to get the Early Bird price of $595 for NIADA members and $795 for non-members. That’s $100 off the standard price and $200 off the cost to register on-site.
