WASHINGTON, D.C.- Dealers and their families, general managers and industry executives will gather May 21-22 for the annual Automotive Congress, presented by the American International Automobile Dealers Association. The 25th Automotive Congress meets at the JW Marriott in Washington. The event gives dealers an opportunity to meet with their elected federal officials.

Confirmed speakers headlining this year's event include former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and consumer advocate Ralph Nader, who will offer their perspectives from the right and from the left. Former Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula is the keynote speaker for the All-Star Dealer Awards Banquet, sponsored by the Washington Post and Newsweek.
