Automotive News Retail Forum: NADA on Jan. 26 in Dallas will feature conversations with key retail industry leaders and dealers that will explore top-of-mind topics, including the new tax credits for EVs and how proposed regulatory changes could impact advertising and finance and insurance practices.
Attendees will hear from auto industry leaders including Damon Lester, former president of the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers who now owns a Maryland Nissan dealership; Group 1 Automotive Inc.'s new CEO and longtime executive Daryl Kenningham, and Larry Van Tuyl, who in 2015 sold his dealership empire to Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. In 2020, Van Tuyl began again to acquire dealerships and now has eight stores in his Visionary Automotive Group.
Two panel discussions with dealers and industry experts will dive into EVs and tax credits and a Federal Trade Commission proposal, along with its possible impacts to dealership advertising and F&I business practices.
The event at the Omni Dallas Hotel opens at 10:30 a.m. local time, with programming beginning at 11 a.m. The forum runs through 4 p.m. local time.
The event also will honor Automotive News' 2022 40 Under 40 class.
