NCADA Joins AIS 2019 as Partner; Summit to Focus on Digital Retailing

The content for the 2019 Auto Intel Summit is designed to be fresh, relevant and crucial to your business. And who better to hear from on water-cooler topics like digital retailing than from those on the front lines? In this case, that’s car dealers.

One of the most exciting things for the team organizing AIS has been the connection and collaboration with local dealers.

Cherokee Media Group, the presenters of AIS, has been headquartered  in the Triangle region of North Carolina (Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill), since parent company S&A Cherokee’s inception in the early 1980s. And one of the neatest things about holding AIS from our home base has been connecting with local players in the auto industry — and big ones at that.

This year, AIS has added another significant partnership to its roster: The The North Carolina Automobile Dealers Association(NCADA) is an official industry partner of the Auto Intel Summit, which will take place in Raleigh from July 23-25.

Robert Glaser, President and CEO, NCADA, commented on the partnership, saying, “The Automotive Intelligence Summit will cover the most important emerging issues facing our industry today.

“Therefore, we are excited to support it and offer our members a chance to interact with and learn from the some of the most notable names in the industry.”

The association said the partnership with AIS is a reflection of its committed to offering members the most current educational and professional development opportunities available in the industry.

NCADA will be organizing a panel at AIS that will address “what’s next for dealerships?” Amid the onset of digital retailing, a plethora of new fintech tools available and the potential for machine learning and AI to automate processes within their business, there is plenty for dealers to consider.

In fact, one of the focuses of AIS 2019 is the evolution of digital retailing.

In taking a look at our agenda, there will be a variety of angles on the evolution of digital retail presented during the three days of the second annual AIS. Here is a snapshot of some of these takes on next gen vehicle sales from the 2019 AIS agenda:
