Straight Outta NADA 2016

2016-04-20Were you part of the largest automotive industry event of 2016? Commercial Truck Trader sure was! Over a 4-day span, 16,500 car and truck dealers and 32,500 franchises (both domestic and international) descended upon the 2-million square foot Las Vegas Convention Center for an action-packed automotive extravaganza! The National Automobile Dealers’ Association Convention and Expo – or NADA as it is known – is a massive, annual  event for unveiling the industry’s latest technologies. It’s also a great opportunity to network and collaborate with current and prospective customers, as well as industry professionals. It’s a wild time and since it’s in Las Vegas, you never know when a showgirl or acrobat will come strolling down the aisle!

To ensure that Commercial Truck Trader could go toe-to-toe with other industry leaders we  started planning in months in advance, which included reserving a prime booth location in the Central Hall next to our sister company, Dominion Dealer Solutions. And to top it off we designed an impressive 20×20 custom booth complete with a prodigious hanging sign and 4 demo stations with 46” HDTVs. To compliment this fantastic booth, fourteen Commercial Truck Trader team members from all over the United States came together for this spectacular event to showcase our products and highlight our brand.

The Commercial Truck Trader booth was buzzing with activities including live demos, fun giveaways and product experts providing individual consultations tailored to the customer’s business needs. Social Media followers  were even able to stay connected with us on Facebook and Twitter during our NADA-takeover. It was exhausting. It was exhilarating. It was certainly an experience and ultimately, Sin City was a huge success!

Stay connected with us so you can visit Commercial Truck Trader at NADA 2017, which will be hosted down south in The Big Easy!
