Used Car Week (which is next week, by the way!) has some exciting new twists in store.
One of those is the Used Car Awards (UCAs), which will make their debut during the conference, which is being held Nov. 13-17 at the La Quinta Resort & Club in Palm Springs, Calif.
The UCAs will honor the dealers and executives making positive impacts and building great businesses within the used-car industry.
Recognizing excellence has long been a key part of Used Car Week’s annual agenda, and with the launch of the UCAs, those awards and recognitions will be grouped together during the Used Car Awards Luncheon on Tuesday Nov. 14, which is being sponsored by TradeRev.
“We’re excited about the launch of the UCAs,” said Bill Zadeits, president of AuSM and chairman of Used Car Week. “We’ve had tremendous response to efforts such as Women in Remarketing, AuSM’s Under 40 and others; this launch was taking the next step to brand and solidify our company’s commitment to recognizing the industry’s best and brightest.
“Used Car Week is the ideal opportunity to meet and honor those in our industry who are at the top of their game.”
Awards that have traditionally been a part of the event, as well as these new awards, will all be part of the UCA luncheon.
As part of this combined effort of AuSM, SubPrime Auto Finance News and other AuSM brands, the new awards include:
- Franchise Dealer of the Year
- Independent Dealer of the Year
- And three tiers of Dealer Group(s) of the Year
Again, the Used Car Awards will be presented during a luncheon sponsored by TradeRev during the First Block of Used Car Week on Nov. 14.
Additional industry recognition and awards such as the AuSM Under 40, Women in Remarketing, Lifetime Achievement and the National Remarketing Executive of the Year will still be presented during the NRC/NAAA (Second Block) portion of the week.
All of the award winners and honorees during Used Car Week will be highlighted in a special December “Used Car Awards” edition of AuSM magazine.
