AADA invites Dealers to join us on our study tour to the 2018 National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Convention in Las Vegas next March.
NADA is one of the most powerful advocacy groups in the USA. Its membership of 19,000 represents about 95 per cent of all retail automotive Dealers in the United States. They fiercely and steadfastly advocate for the Dealer.
To be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Convention will feature hundreds of exhibitors, thousands of Dealers and some of the automotive and entertainment industry’s leading speakers and performers, all of which make NADA one of the world’s premier business events in any field.
Innovations and solutions: expo
The NADA Show Expo is the auto industry’s premier marketplace of products, services and technologies specifically targeted to franchised new car dealerships. More than 700,000 square feet of exhibits highlight more than 500 manufacturers and suppliers of the hottest products and coolest technologies.
Ideas and collaboration: education
NADA Show 2018, to be held in Las Vegas 22-25 March 2018, delivers the most comprehensive education program in the auto industry, with more than 120 sessions in eight tracks. Hear industry experts speak about important subjects at the workshops. Interact with peers on hot topics in the Exchange. Discuss solutions with facilitators in the Studio.

Network with peers, industry experts and exhibitors at all the events, from the opening reception – co-hosted by J.D. Power – to popular general sessions, receptions, supplier meetings and other gatherings.
The inspiring workshops, Super Sessions and the hundreds of new products and services on display on the expo floor of the Convention make a visit to NADA an absolute must for any Dealer serious about arming themselves with the best knowledge.
Together with our travel partners, Corporate Blue, AADA has compiled an exciting program for this business-centric tour, with ample time devoted to enjoying NADA’s celebrations in one of the world’s great party cities.
During the four days of the Convention, delegates will be exposed to the latest news, ideas and innovations in the retail automotive world, gaining a cutting-edge advantage over competitors who don’t take advantage of this fabulous opportunity.
All work and no play? No way!
Delegates will also enjoy an exclusive range of premium add-on benefits that no other organisation can match. AADA tour participants will stay at the world famous five-star Bellagio, with the opportunity to enjoy Las Vegas’ famous nightlife and vast array of glittering casinos.
Another highlight of the trip is the chance to enjoy an amazing sunset helicopter tour flying over the spectacular Las Vegas Strip, including drinks and canapes prior to take-off.
The fourth annual AADA International Industry Relations Dinner will see AADA will play host to an acclaimed gathering of leading industry figures from the International Dealer Association Working Group. Held at NOVE, at the top of the Fantasy Tower, guests will enjoy a delicious modern Italian meal while drinking in the breathtaking views of the city from the restaurant’s massive floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
Another social highlight is the Farewell Cocktail Party at Cabo Wabo Cantina, while the final night leaves delegates free to explore this incredible city at their own pace, whether that be walking the Strip or hitting the blackjack tables.
The quality of the business and social programs as well as the stunning Expo are what make the NADA Convention such an informative and exciting event. We take so much out of our yearly pilgrimage, as do the Dealers who accompany us on our Study Tour. We look forward to next year’s event and hope you can join us.
