Submission Deadline: March 16, 2020

Can you offer dynamic, stimulating, and relevant training that will enable RV dealers and dealership personnel to improve their business operations and achieve their professional development goals?

 RVDA’s Convention/Expo Committee is soliciting workshop proposals for the 2020 RV Dealers Convention/Expo, Nov. 9-13 at Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas strip. As the premier education event for RV dealers, over 1,500 individuals from across North America attend the workshops presented during the 5-day event. Almost 300 U.S. and Canadian dealerships will be represented by dealer principals, general managers, and dealership personnel from every department at an RV dealership. The committee-selected workshops are Wednesday, November 11- Thursday, November 12. Compliance sessions are Friday, November 13. 

 The committee reviews and selects sessions for the event's non-promotional workshops offered in these tracks:  

  •  F&I
  • Sales
  • Rental
  • Dealer/GM
  • Social Media/eMarketing
  • Fixed Operations (parts and service)
  • Compliance

 The selection committee welcomes submissions from ‘in-the-trenches’ training professionals, consultants, dealership professionals, vendors, and others who support the RV industry. Individuals who can provide high impact programs with actionable strategies that will help dealers increase profitability and improve performance are encouraged to respond.

 The convention is sponsored by RVDA–The National RV Dealers Association, RVDA of Canada, and the Mike Molino RV Learning Center.

 Follow these steps to submit your proposal

  1.  Review the 2020 RVDA Convention/Expo Call for Workshop Proposals website for insight on the committee's vision for topics, submission requirements.

  • Compliance: a look back at 2020 and what to expect in 2021
  • Finding and retaining top performing talent
  • Leadership and management training for department managers: motivating others, goal setting, and leading people
