National Automobile Dealers Association moves convention dates for 2015 to 2018

Beginning in 2015, the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Convention and Expo will be held Thursday to Sunday, instead of Friday to Monday. “After surveying the membership and exhibitors, the consensus was to end the convention on Sunday, instead of Monday,” said Desmond Roberts, chairman of NADA’s convention committee and a Chevrolet dealer in Hodgkins, Ill.

“The Thursday to Sunday timeframe will allow convention attendees to be back at work earlier the following week,” he said.

For more than 40 years, the NADA convention has been held Friday to Monday. The 2014 NADA and American Truck Dealers (ATD) conventions will be held concurrently in New Orleans from Jan. 24 to 27 as scheduled from Friday to Monday.

Here are the revised dates for the NADA and ATD conventions in 2015 to 2018: 

• 2015 – San Francisco (Jan. 22-25)

• 2016 – Las Vegas (March 31 - April 3)

• 2017 – New Orleans (Jan. 26-29)

• 2018 – Las Vegas (March 22-25)
