What's New at VDTA•SDTA?

New for 2017 …..

September 9 – 10 (Saturday and Sunday), 2017, VDTA•SDTA will hold a regional trade show in Canada. This will be held in Niagara Falls at the Scotiabank Convention Centre. It's a b-e-a-utiful area and is very easy to fly or drive to. The convention center and area hotels are a short distance from the Buffalo, NY or Toronto, ONT airports. It will make a nice weekend trip, and you can stay a couple of days and visit the area.

Watch the VDTA News for information on this event.

New for 2018 …..

I want to thank everyone who attended the International Trade Show and Convention in Las Vegas in February. It was a GREAT event. We have had so many wonderful comments about the classes, especially panels where dealers shared their ideas for success. There were also 46 new exhibitors with hundreds of new products for you to sell in your store. Look in this magazine for the post-show articles and pictures. See who won the Best Booth awards and New Product of the Year awards.

Save the Date: March 24 – 26, 2018. If you missed the 2017 trade show and convention, you won't want to miss next year as VDTA•SDTA moves this international event to Charlotte, NC for 2018. There will be new programs in Charlotte that will help you "drive your sales" when you return home.

Plans are to hold the Industry Cocktail Reception at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. You'll be captivated by this exciting facility located next door to the Charlotte Convention Center, downtown Charlotte.

We are also planning some off-site events at local manufacturing facilities. Watch the VDTA News for details.

If you have ideas for classes, panels, or instructors for the Charlotte show, please contact our office.
We are always open to new ideas. We want to be your resource and follow through on your suggestions.

Thank you for your support and have a wonderful April!
