Organizers for the 2018 RVBusiness Top 50 Dealer Awards trust that you’ll save the date for this year’s Top 50 presentations scheduled to take place during a free 5:30-8 p.m. reception on Nov. 7 during this year’s RV Dealers Convention/Expo.
A trade-only show best known for its educational and networking aspects, the Con/Expo will be co-hosted again this year by both of North America’s leading RV dealer trade groups — the U.S.-based Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) and RVDA of Canada — at Paris Las Vegas.
“All convention attendees — not only dealers — are again welcome at our reception,” said BJ Thompson, an Elkhart, Ind.-based public relations executive who serves as coordinator for the annual Top 50 awards program. “We’d love for everyone interested to join us — suppliers, vendors, manufacturers, anyone can come. We always have fun while we focus on the professional business practices of some of America’s top recreational vehicle retailers. We plan to keep doing just that — the more, the merrier.”
A crowd of about 500 attendees, including dealer personnel, suppliers, other vendors and manufacturers as well as Top 50 winners’ staffs, friends and family, attended the 2017 reception. And, RVDA personnel report, registrations for this year’s Con/Expo are running about 20% ahead of last year’s. The Top 50 program is facilitated by G&G Media Group LLC, publishers of RVBusiness and Woodall’s Campground Management magazines.
Sponsors include Airxcel, Ally Financial Inc., Brown & Brown Insurance, Cummins Power Generation, Dometic Corp., Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp., Lippert Components Inc., NTP-STAG, Protective Asset Protection and Wells Fargo CDF.
