Kick off Day 1 with a big brekkie

A classic American breakfast at the Daily Grill with key members of the Deloitte Australia team will be a great way to kick-start your AADA NADA Study Tour experience.

Tuck in to their signature Crab Cake Benedict or the house speciality, Cobb Omelette. What about a good start breakfast of granola, berries, bananas and low fat yoghurt? The menu is BIG to say the least. Enjoy!

Then you’ll hit the road with Cox Automotive – the world’s biggest automotive services company and operator of autotrader.com, the market-leading auto classified website, and explore ‘Googleplex’, Google’s amazing Mountain View office and campus, where its employees are fed three gourmet meals a day and enjoy an array of amazing perks, such as yoga classes, massages, cooking, coffee-tasting classes and more.

Then it’s on to lunch at eBay, followed by a two-hour visit to one of San Francisco’s high volume and luxury brand dealerships, where delegates will have the opportunity to see and discuss dealership operations with senior executives and BDC staff.

Topics to be discussed will include facility developments, digital automotive merchandising tools, customer touch- points, social media, sales processes and service retention, to mention just a few.

NADA welcome reception

Delegates are invited to the Official NADA Welcome Reception, to be held at the prestigious San Francisco Marriott Marquis.

One of the city’s most prestigious establishments, this striking high-rise downtown hotel is within a four-minute walk from the Moscone Centre and a mere eight minutes from Union Square.
