Good call on firing this up again Ryan!

FRIKINtech and DealerRefresh were planning to go. We had decent success with the spring event, but I am seeing too many dealers wanting to hold onto their dollars now. I made the call to pull-out under the belief there won't be many dealers attending for the ROI we'd like.

I'm also sitting in a house where my Kindergartner has been to school 3 days this year and my 6th grader has been out twice for contact tracing. We now have a positive case in the house. Vermont is the highest vaccinated state in the union. It is starting to look like Israel. COVID could bring bigger issues this flu season. Or who knows, maybe the flu will come back and COVID can take a backseat :dunno: ….yeah right.

I'll be there with 3 members of my team!

Looking forward to reconnecting with everyone after a year of no in-person conferences.

Also looking forward to watching Digital Dealer enforce the mask mandate. Car dealers aren't well known for their mask compliance :)

Yeah, I think dealers are finally realizing the new car shortage is going to last longer than everyone originally thought.

We've basically gone dark on new car advertising but all-in with used and fixed ops.

This is one of the big reasons I miss living in Vegas - was easy to go, when all I had to do was drive to the mid point of my normal daily commute. Can't make it this year, hoping to next year, perhaps.

-Will you be there?
I am still scheduled to go - have hotel booked, but holding off buying a DD ticket until the last min (getting money back from DD is like crazy hard). Maybe I will just go for some gambling and nice dinners??

-Where can we find you?
Call my cell - would love to hook up, coffee, lunch, dinner, or ????

-What are you most excited to see or learn about?
I am just happy to see auto people face/face

-What session is a must-see?
I always set my session schedule the week before - due to changes, etc.

-Vendors, why should a dealer visit your booth? What exciting new product or functionality are you debuting at the show?
Regardless of what anyone says, I am not a vender. My nouns are "Employee" or "Contract Employee" ;)

The TradePending team will be there suitcasing the show. Keep an eye out for Brice and Joe Dallas, plus a handful of others. The DD Tampa show was decent in terms of attendance, but fantastic to be back in person.

It is always good to see you Jeremy.

I always appreciate your contributions here on Refresh. We can never have too many pot stirrers!
