ORLANDO, Fla. — The $100 “early-bird” discount for P&A Leadership Summit attendees ends at midnight tomorrow, Sept. 20, organizers announced. The event will be held Oct. 8–10, 2018, at the Caribe Royale Orlando in Orlando, Fla., co-located with the annual Industry Summit. PALS is the only event designed by and for executives and thought leaders in the F&I product provider and administrator segment. Members of this year’s advisory board, who represent a cross-section of the industry’s foremost providers, have assembled an agenda that covers such pressing topics as mounting GAP losses and digital sales and financing and includes keynote addresses from TrueCar’s Chip Perry and Cindy Allen of StoneEagle. Registered attendees are welcome to join any PALS or Industry Summit session or networking event, including Compliance Summit and onsite “Product Specialist” compliance certification by Automotive Compliance Education (ACE), all for no additional charge. “To describe PALS as a meeting of the minds is an understatement,” said show chair David Gesualdo, publisher of P&A and F&I and Showroom magazines. “It is an open forum in the truest sense, an incredible opportunity to network and do business, and a value at any price.” More details about the 2018 P&A Leadership Summit is available at the event’s website.
