The National RV Dealers Association (RVDA) announced that NTP-STAG is returning as a Silver Partner for the 2019 RV Dealers Convention/Expo. According to a press release, the convention/expo takes place Nov. 11-15 at Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas strip and is sponsored by RVDA, RVDA of Canada and the Mike Molino RV Learning Center.

“Our industry is continuously improving thanks to the commitment of partners like NTP-STAG,” said Convention/Expo Chair Chris Andro, president of Hemlock Hill RV, Southington, Conn. “The support of NTP-STAG enables us to offer an exceptional educational experience that remains affordable. Our partners at NTP-STAG continue to demonstrate a commitment to dealer education, and we are fortunate to count them as a partner once again for the convention/expo.”

“The feedback we got last year for our ‘Retail Technology and Innovation’ booth was outstanding and challenged us to consider what we could do differently this year to get RVDA members thinking more broadly about how their retail and service operations impact sales and customer connectivity,” said Bill Rogers, who leads the NTP-STAG organization. “With the industry’s interest in repair cycle times and keeping customers on the road, we created a Service Center Showcase in the exhibit hall.

“We plan on sharing some ideas about service parts inventory management, back-room organizational strategies, technology solutions to improve parts ordering and diagnostics, and we will have on display a working model of a mobile service vehicle that can extend a dealer’s market area coverage and customer care beyond the service bays at their location.”

The RVDA Convention/Expo Committee is working to provide a variety of workshops and networking events that will aid dealers in building on an expanding market and interest in RVs and RV travel.
