I missed out on the Winter Break event last year due to a snowstorm here in Jersey! I was pretty bummed, who from the northeast wouldn't want to get to Florida in March. March is one of my least favorite months of the year in Jersey, on some days it's winter, other days you get a sprinkling of spring and then you're back to winter.
This years event will be held on March 20th & March 21st at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Which is awesome!!! I'm heading down with the wife early on the 20th and we'll then spend the rest of the week enjoying the resort, Disney and the warmth!!
But, what I'm most looking forward to is the Educational Sessions, thus my Ten Reasons are listed below:
- Adapting to Today's New Buying Habits: Darrel Amy, chief information officer, & Lindsay Kelly, chief marketing strategist, Dealer Marketing
- Recession or No Recession: Prepare Your Business to Grove & Thrive in Either Environment Chris Polek, CEO Polek & Polek
- Sales Management: The Benchmarks that Drive Sales to Higher Levels: Melissa Whitaker, founder Melissa Whitaker International LLC
- Keynote Dealer Panel: Mergers, Acquisitions & Future Growth: What is Your Dealership's Strategy? Jeff Gau CEO Marco, Saint Cloud, Minn. Jim Kreikemeier, President Capital Business Systems Inc., For Collins, Colorado Rick Lott, Co-Owner Zymphony Technology Solutions Tampa, Florida
- Spend time with all of the 37 vendors to see what's new & different, and how it can help me grow my sales revenue and profit.
- Chance to catch up with old friends and network with new friends!
- Spend Sunday afternoon & evening at the Disney theme park of my choice (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom)
- Catch a Braves pre-season baseball game
- Enjoy the warmth, the sun, and the resort (no phone, no motor car, no cold weather)
I highly recommend all of the BTA Events, but, if you can swing the time in March make sure you book the registration by on or before the February 18th. By registering before the 18th you'll receive a second registration free!! Register here
