AADA Convention and Expo
Melbourne | 24-25 July 2024
TIME: 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
The AADA General Session is the cornerstone of the AADA Convention, and this year we are delighted to welcome back Anjali Rao as Host for the 2023 AADA Convention & Expo.
James Voortman will deliver the AADA Opening Statement reporting on the work that AADA has completed on behalf of new car franchised dealers over the past year, and detail other aspects of AADA’s ongoing policy challenges in the year ahead.
Ren Blanning, Head of Retail Growth at carsales, will present The Preowned Market: Prevailing Trends and Growth Opportunities. With most sales coming from digital sources, it’s crucial to understand key success metrics and the automotive market landscape. Ren’s presentation will give dealers all the numbers to maximise these opportunities.
Mark Ward, Randall Bryson & Grant Cameron from BDO will provide comprehensive insights into topics such as profitability, key focus areas, consolidation and the dealer model through their Dealership Trends – Not Just The Numbers presentation.
To close the AADA General Session, Alex Farrugia from Angle Auto Finance will present a Dealership F&I Case Study on this vital area of dealership operations. Data collected by RFI Global found 44% of dealership customers thought about their financing options before commencing the purchasing process, underpinning why F&I performance has remained largely static or declined in recent years.
