The Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) announce six bronze sponsors for the RV Dealers International Convention/Expo, Oct.1-5, at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, according to a press release. The convention is sponsored by RVDA, RVDA of Canada and the RV Learning Center.

Bronze sponsors for the 2012 convention through today (June 27) are: Ally Financial; Diversified Insurance Management Inc.; Forest River Inc.; MBA Insurance Inc.; Reed Brothers Insurance Group, Div. of Brown & Brown Insurance; UVS Junction.

“Through convention sponsorship, these leading companies are demonstrating outstanding support for RV dealers and dealership employees,” said RVDA Convention/Expo Committee Chairman Peter Albano of American RV in Olive Branch, Miss. “The association could not provide the extensive educational program offered at the convention without our sponsors, and we thank them for their commitment to the convention and to dealers.”

To make the convention as affordable as possible, the registration fee for dealership employees is the same as last year. RVDA is also offering special registration plans, including an easy-pay plan of four payments and the ability to lock in early rates for additional employees with one paid convention registration.

Themed “The Road to Opportunity,” the convention will feature educational super sessions designed to help dealers navigate the issues and opportunities they face today, strategies to reach new customers through new technology and to harness the power of social media, and a new series of fixed operations workshops for service and parts managers to improve efficiency and profitability.

The 2012 convention will also feature an exhibit hall filled with the RV industry’s top companies offering products and services to help dealers improve profitability. RVDA’s Partners in Progress Brand Committees will also meet to work on important dealer-manufacturer issues.
