Thu Nov 9, 2017

149996299339333.jpgTACOMA, Wash. – Sobel University issued a response today addressing the numerous inquiries that have been made in regards to seating at the Sobel Dealer Bootcamp with Randy Sobel during the National RV Trade Show in Louisville.

“We are impressed by the number of dealers calling to reserve seating. While we will make every effort to accommodate all registered guests, guaranteed seating will be offered to those who call our office by November 16.” says Randy Sobel, President of Sobel University. “Since our Comprehensive Sales Courses typically sell out, we encourage dealers to call in advance.”

Registered attendees may contact Sobel University to reserve a seat at the Bootcamp which is scheduled Wednesday, Nov. 29 and Thursday, Nov. 30 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. These building-block classes will provide advancing material rather than starting over from scratch with each session. The two-hour time slot is intended to allow for "real training" to occur that will make dealers money with immediate application at their dealerships.

Sobel University will present educational, RV-sales training that will give attendees skills to implement for an increase in productivity and will build upon the lessons taught each year. All attendees will receive certification credits towards Sobel University courses.

For more information or to get an early start on the winter training program contact Sobel University at 253-565-2577.
