RV dealers and their professional staff registering for the 2018 RV Dealers Convention/Expo by June 30 not only secure the lowest rates available, but they also lock in the discounted early bird pricing for every other dealership employee, no matter when they register. Online registration is available on the RVDA website, along with a PDF form that can be printed and faxed or mailed.

The convention/expo, Nov. 5 through 9 at Paris Las Vegas, is the premier education event for dealers and their staff and is sponsored by RVDA–The National RV Dealers Association, RVDA of Canada, and the Mike Molino RV Learning Center.

“We are looking forward to a great event in November,” says RVDA President Phil Ingrassia. “The RVDA Convention/Expo Committee has done an excellent job of building educational track on topics that dealers are talking about right now,”

In addition to numerous education workshops separated by track, there are Partners in Progress Meetings, a two part mini-rental school, the Solution Center, education and networking opportunities for Young RV Executives, and a day of Vendor Training +Plus. Convention registration includes two receptions and two lunches in the expo, an opening general session with keynote speaker Jason Dorsey, and the RVDA annual membership meeting.
Video previews and full descriptions of many track workshops and the keynote speaker are available on the convention website.

The convention is sponsored by RVDA–The National RV Dealers Association, RVDA of Canada, and the Mike Molino RV Learning Center and each year the Convention/Expo Committee focuses on featuring new presenters, like Gabrielle Bosché and Marcus Sheridan, to keep the content relevant and fresh for dealers.

The convention will also feature the Solution Center, an expo of the RV industry’s top companies offering products and services to help dealers improve profitability.
