Dealer Resource Pavilion

"Every year, the show gets a little bit better. I really liked Dealer Day because it’s not so crowded. It seems like the vendors came prepared with more equipment than usual. GIE+EXPO is a great place to get new ideas for next year."

High-performance dealers understand that people are assets, process is king and having a strong plan is a better strategy than hoping things will turn out alright. At this year’s GIE+EXPO, OPE dealers will have the opportunity to discover how to turn their dealerships into high-performing machines. The Dealer Resource Pavilion – including an Internet café, lounge and leading suppliers’ information booths – will be available to dealers, retailers, technicians and distributors only.
