Priority register has opened Sewells Group NADA US 2013 study tour


Sewells Group South Africa has opened priority register for next year’s motor dealer study tour which will include the NADA US Convention 2013 (February 8th to 11th) and a spread of specially selected hands-on business visits in Orlando, Florida in the United States.

‘These extremely popular study tours have been successfully facilitated by Sewells since 1988,’ says Mike Paxton, a senior business consultant who is a lead member of tour’s hosting party.

‘We’re well advanced with our planning for an intriguing and rewarding retail automotive look into the motor business in Florida and attendance at the NADA Convention which is widely recognised as the most rewarding annual gathering of motor dealers in the world.

‘Our targeted flight arrival at Orlandois February 6th and departure will be from February 12th 2013 the day after the closing session of the Convention.’

He encourages senior dealership executives everywhere to give early consideration to taking part.

‘We had such interest for our 2012 tour that we actually doubled up on the number of dealer visits planned inLas Vegas. There is also a wider appeal from dealers globally –  earlier this year India joined South African, Angolan, Kenyan and Zambian delegates and we are fully-prepared to facilitate access for dealers from any of the Sewells Group operational areas.’

Sewells Group South Africa is part of a global training and business management consulting company in the automotive retail sector which has offices in Australia, New Zealand, India, China, Thailand and Indonesia providing its specialised services to a wide spread of motor dealers and manufacturers.

The 2012 NADA US Convention attracted a record 20 000 dealer delegates – a number which is quite likely to be surpassed in 2013, says Mike.

The 2013 Convention (February 8th to 11th) will include 45 different topics covered in 120 workshop sessions spread over seven ‘tracks’ as well as a host of top level keynote speakers.
