There’s no question about it. Attending the 2018 IDAExpo is A Sure Bet! The educational program provided by IDEA is second to none, responding to the ever expanding challenges door and access dealers face on a daily basis. Sales, financing, personnel management, and marketing, are but a few of the topics to be covered. In addition, an extensive program for technicians will be presented. I consider the expansive line-up of product and service exhibitors to be a major part of the educational experience as well. Learning about new products and services first hand is highly rewarding. No other place exists that offers dealers such a valuable opportunity. The event also offers a number of social and fun events you won’t want to miss.
