The Automotive Distribution Network has sold out its 14th Network National Convention, with an overflow crowd expected March 15 through 18 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando.
“My hat’s off to The Network’s members, jobbers and service dealers for taking time off from their respective businesses to sharpen their skillset and network with other professionals who are as equally committed to the group’s success,” says David Prater, president of The Network. “The 14th National Convention represents everything The Network is about as our affiliates at every level seek to continually evolve and thrive in an ever-changing industry.”
This year, The Network will host 66 seminars featuring 15 different instructors and more than 35 topics. Attendees will also benefit from talking shop face to face with the group’s vendor partners on the floor Manufacturers’ Exposition. Network affiliates will also be meeting with reps from the Auto Care Political Action Committee (ACPAC) to ensure their voice is heard in Washington, D.C., regarding industry issues.
Attendance this year was undoubtedly sparked by the destination. The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort features three championship golf courses, 17 restaurants offering diverse cuisine and shuttles to the four nearby Disney parks. The event closes with a St. Patrick’s Day Bash, followed by a special viewing of “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth,” Epcot’s fireworks and laser show.
