Dealer Week will feature three industry trainers as ‘education hosts’

The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas has tapped three industry trainers to host each of its “education pathways” during its first Dealer Week, Dec. 8-11, 2019, in Tampa, Fla.

The customer pathway will be hosted by Sam Dantzler, the dealership pathway by David Spader, and the employee pathway by Jim Million.

Each dealer pathway will feature sessions, case studies, workshops, and dealer-to-dealer interaction, as well as the trainer host.

“We are thrilled that three of the most requested trainers from previous MRAA events have agreed to take on this expanded role with Dealer Week,” said MRAA education director Mike Davin in a statement. “Not only will each of these experts present material during the conference, they will be like personal guides for the dealers and ensure that our educational programming builds toward a greater whole.”

In addition to the new education pathways, the event will kick off with an optional field trip and feature an evening Dealer Week Industry Celebration. A full schedule is here.

“Our hope is that representatives from departments across the dealership will attend these sessions together,” Davin said. “We’ve built in additional time for discussion to give attendees time to process and discuss what they’re learning with the help of their peers and the Education Hosts.”

MRAA vice president Liz Walz introduces the hosts in this Facebook live video.
