Early Bird registration for the next automotive dealer gathering — NADA and ATD Convention and Expo 2014 — to be held in New Orleans next January, is set to begin on July 22.

There are some changes in date structure coming down the line.

Considered as the “Automotive Industry Event of the Year,” the 2013 NADA convention drew more than 21,000 attendees, which included new-car and -truck dealers and their managers, manufacturer and allied executives, exhibitors and members of the media.

The 2014 NADA and ATD Convention and Expo will be held in New Orleans, LA January 24 – 27, based on the Friday to Monday schedule that has been in place for more than 40 years.

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

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. 24-27 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)
