AADA’s All-New NADA Study Tour: Not Just Business as Usual

A totally redesigned and re-imagined tour for 2016

Never before has the AADA NADA Study Tour been so focused on rewarding delegates with an unforgettable global automotive industry experience. That includes the opportunity to partake in the most exciting and glamorous dining, entertainment and networking opportunities only a fantasyland like Las Vegas can offer.

Considered the ‘Automotive Industry Event of the Year’, NADA Conventions typically draw 20,000-plus delegates, including auto dealers, managers, manufacturers, allied industry executives, exhibitors and members of the media from around the globe.

NADA is also renowned for presenting some of the world’s highest profile keynote speakers such as Jeb Bush, the former Governor of Florida, Hilary Clinton, the former First Lady and front runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, as well as Jay Leno, acclaimed late night TV show host and stand-up comedian.

And you can rest-assured that the 2016 line-up will be equally impressive.

The Convention agenda also features over 80 Dealer-centric workshops, presenting the latest strategies and solutions to help you achieve solid growth and sales in 2016 and beyond. Topics to be covered include marketing, finance, insurance, government, used cars, incentives and social media (just to mention a few).


Another bonus for AADA tour delegates will be the journey to one of Nevada’s most successful dealerships on Thursday morning, where delegates will have the chance to gain insight into their key profit centres, operating procedures, sales game plans, online marketing and more.

Thursday afternoon will be your first opportunity to visit the Las Vegas Convention Centre and attend up to three inspiring workshop sessions featuring some of the industry’s most influential leaders and speakers.

There’s also an official AADA workshop which is an exclusive opportunity available only to Corporate Blue guests.

In between sessions you will be able to stretch your legs and stroll the expo floor where you’ll see hundreds of exhibitors showcasing the latest equipment, services and technologies.

Another unforgettable experience will be the Friday night dinner at the stylish Dal Toro ristorante with its multi-million dollar supercar showroom and gallery. Not only will guests savour the finest Italian cuisine and wines, but you’ll also have an unrivalled opportunity to meet Bill Fox, the NADA Chairman after his official opening of the evening.

In addition, there will be an international forum of leading industry figures from the International Dealer Association Working Group (IDAWG) including USA, Brazil, Australia, China, India and Canada participating in an interactive panel discussion on the many challenges facing the global auto industry.

Of course, a range of wonderful Las Vegas entertainment to wrap-up the evening is included too.

These are just a few of the highlights of this all-new NADA 2016 AADA Study Tour presented by Corporate Blue – one of Australia’s foremost boutique corporate agencies.

Just in case you were wondering you’ll have plenty of time to relax and engage with old colleagues too. Not to mention the chance to make new connections as you enjoy all that Las Vegas is famous for, including those flashing lights on the Strip.

For those wishing to extend their stay, your AADA host can arrange for you to see the Hoover Dam by helicopter, fly over the spectacular Grand Canyon by plane, coast over the desert in a hot air balloon or tear up the Mojave in a dune buggy.

Whatever you choose to do, your AADA host will be there to assist you with all post-NADA planning, transfers and even lunch and dinner recommendations, as well as your departure transfers for return flights to Australia.
