LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the upcoming Agent Summit have announced that registration is now open for the 2018 event, which will be held May 20–23 at the Venetian & Palazzo Resort Hotel Casinos in Las Vegas.

The industry’s only event designed by and for automotive general agents and agent principals was launched in 2010 and has grown from a one-room, one-day seminar into a four-day event. Returning once again, Randy Crisorio of United Development Systems will chair the Agent Summit advisory board, which is charged with constructing the event’s agenda with an eye toward the issues facing agents today, including F&I training and development, agency-building and new technology.

The annual Reinsurance Symposium has been a standing-room-only fixture since 2012. In 2015, for the first time, organizers added one session open only to agent principals. The 2017 event featured Automotive Compliance Specialist training and certification for no additional charge, courtesy of Automotive Compliance Education (ACE); the partnership will continue in 2018.

In addition to the educational slate, the Agent Summit agenda includes an expo hall filled with new opportunities for agency and dealer revenue, numerous networking events, motivational speakers and more.

“Agents are professionals, entrepreneurs and industry leaders, and I can’t imagine a more powerful and dedicated group to build an event around,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Agent Entrepreneur and F&I and Showroom magazines. “Your investment in Agent Summit will pay off with new ideas and a renewed sense of purpose for your agency and your dealer clients.”
