Dealers and vendors got a full week of networking, learning, and discussing issues vital to the RV industry last week, but there’s still more to come as the RV Dealers Virtual Convention/Expo enters its second week.
There are more 30 on-demand workshops in the platform that can be accessed through January 31. The topics of these sessions cover sales, digital marketing, F&I, fixed operations, and dealer/GM. In addition, there are 18 Vendor Training +Plus workshops available in the platform. Vendor Training +Plus seminars are designed to help dealership management increase profitability.
