CATA Dealer Meeting & Expo details unfolding; event is June 22

A veritable Murderer’s Row of educational seminars and exhibiting allied members await at the 2nd annual CATA Dealer Meeting & Expo, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. June 22. Attendance is free but limited to dealers and their managers.
Dealership personnel can venture upstairs at the CATA headquarters in Oakbrook Terrace to learn from 12 “best practice” topics, each about 45 minutes in length. Concurrent presentations will begin at 10:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m. And a special luncheon keynote address will be disseminated live as that week’s Webinar of DealersEdge, the online training center.
Visitors also can roam the ground-level salons, to explore business opportunities with about 40 CATA allied members. The companies will be positioned à la trade show, in 6-by-6 booths, and many will be offering gifts.
But that’s not all. Attendees also will be treated to a buffet lunch and be eligible to win prizes. In 2010, gifts included complimentary advertising campaigns valued at up to $7,500, and multiple retail and restaurant gift cards worth up to $500.
