Out and About at Industry Tradeshows

To keep up to date on industry happenings and broaden our network of partners, clients and vendors, MetroGistics staff make it a point to attend several national and international tradeshows every year. Here’s a preview of some of the upcoming events we will be attending in September.

National Auto Auction Association Annual Meeting

Sept. 22-24

Bonnet Creek, Florida (near Orlando)

The NAAA provides a unified voice for the auto auction industry, protects and promotes the interests of its members, and leads with the highest ethical standards.

This popular event practically sells out every year. Director of Business Development Dustin Ruch and Executive Vice President, Business Development Dave Larson will be in Booth #106 to share the latest news and offerings from MetroGistics.

According to Dave, “The National Auto Auction Association represents 335 auto auctions globally, and the NAAA conference is a virtual who’s who of the entire used-car industry.”

Automotive Logistics Global Conference

Sept. 22-24

Detroit, Michigan

This is a key conference for automotive logistics professionals, providing the opportunity to share with peers and benefit from networking with key contacts in the industry. This conference will be attended by every Original Equipment Manufacturer and their service providers.

A major theme of this year’s conference is Big Data and how industry leaders can share information with each other to find solutions and optimize processes that will benefit all.

Dave is scheduled to attend both of these conferences, which will be challenging due to the fact they take place at the same time in different cities on the opposite coast from the one on which he lives.

“I guess my own logistics skills will be challenged,” says Dave with a laugh. “With meetings preset at both conferences, let the countryside traversing begin.”

To contact Dave to set up a meeting at either conference, or to connect with him even if you are not attending either one, email him at d.larson@metrogistics.com.
