The six speakers signed to speak at the ’09 Louisville RV Industry Business Seminars reiterated their commitment to contributing back to the RV industry during this tough economic period.
The speakers, Bert Alanko of MBA Insurance, Simon Hickey of RedZia RV’s, Jan Kelly of Kelly Enterprises, Hardee McAlheney of McAlheney Consulting, plus Roger and Sheril Vergara of RH Power & Associates Inc., will all share free relevant information, tips and advice to RV dealers and industry business personnel attending the seminars being presented during the 47th Annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky. The seminars are not part of the show or endorsed by the show sponsor.
“It’s no secret that times are tough for our industry right now,” said Sheril Vergara of RH Power & Associates whose topic will be developing an effective Internet sales force. “We see dealers reluctantly cutting back on important business services that impact their growth and profitability. If we can give them a piece of that help back at no cost, then their chances for improvement and success are greatly increased for 2010”.
Each speaker will represent a different segment of RV business operations ranging from financial budgeting to internet lead and sales development, RV rentals development to retail advertising, and more. The seminars are each one hour in length and will be repeated several times over the course of the three-day period.
“We want to give attendees the greatest flexibility with their personal schedules,” said Alanko, who will show dealers new techniques on how to generate greater revenue through RV rentals. He added that “most are planning fewer days at the show, so repeating the seminars will allow them to attend at their convenience.”
The seminars will be held in the Madison/Oldham rooms at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport, formerly known as the Executive West Hotel on Phillips Lane in Louisville. Attendance is free and RV dealers and businesses may bring as many participants as they wish.
