If you are looking for creative industry trends and insightful, forward-thinking ideas, Kijiji might have the answer for you: DealerTalkX.
We are just days away from the start of Kijiji’s latest series of annual, one-day conferences aimed at shedding a little light on sales and marketing best practices for the auto industry.
This year, the event will hit three cities – Toronto, Montreal and Calgary – and feature a lineup of top talent that Rachel Lee, head of B2B marketing at Kijiji, said would help every dealer.
“DealerTalk has grown into one of primary industry hubs for Canadian automobile dealers. Our vision is to take our programming a step further in 2016 and make DealerTalkX an event that caters to providing valuable information and insights, as well as tools for dealers that can ultimately help them with their day-to-day business needs,” she told Canadian AutoWorld.
“We’ll be exploring the freshest ideas with inspired conversations.”
The Toronto show will take place at the All Stream Centre and feature a number of keynote addresses and hands-on workshops.
Former Canadian National Team athlete Jon Montgomery – best known for his victory in the skeleton bobsleigh at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games, as well as for being the host of The Amazing Race Canada – will lead the keynotes in both Toronto and Calgary.
In Toronto (Sept. 20), Jon will be joined by retail expert and president of Graff Retail TV, Kevin Graff; Scott Stratton, president of Un-Marketing, will take the stage in Calgary (Oct. 6) at TELUS Spark.
Indycar fan-favourite Alex Tagliani will be at the Montreal event (Sept. 28) alongside Danièle Sauvageau, former gold-medal winning head coach of the Canadian national women’s hockey team. The Montreal show will be at Espace Reunion.
Lee noted that the fact DealerTalk has spread to three key Canadian auto markets speaks to the calibre of the speakers and the industry insights the show offers.
“The value for attendees is unparalleled. We’re sharing actionable tips and strategies to make marketing initiatives truly powerful. DealerTalkX is a great reflection of Kijiji’s position as a true partner of Canada’s new and used vehicle markets,” she said.
