The Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) announced that GE Capital, Commercial Distribution Finance (CDF), is a Platinum Partner of the 2013 RV Dealers International Convention/Expo, Sept. 30–Oct. 4, at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
According to a press release, the convention is sponsored by RVDA, RVDA of Canada and the RV Learning Center.
“The support of GE Capital and our other partners allows RVDA and the RV Learning Center to meet dealers’ continuing education needs at this important event,” said RVDA Convention/Expo Committee Chairman John McCluskey of Florida Outdoors RV Center in Stuart. “GE has continued to stand behind its dealer business partners over the long haul and we are grateful for that unwavering support.”
GE Capital provided nearly $31 billion in financing for more than 40,000 manufacturers, dealers and distributors across North America in 2012. Programs include inventory and accounts receivable financing, asset-based lending, private label financing, collateral management and related financial products. Customers have access to exclusive online tools and analytics to manage their accounts and inventory. For more information, visit http://www.gecdf.com/.
“The RV Dealers International Convention/Expo provides great opportunity and value for dealers, which is why we are proud to be a sponsor for the 10th consecutive year,” said Tim Hyland, president of the RV Group at GE Capital. “As a lender to the RV industry for more than 30 years, we remain committed to seeing the industry thrive, and we look forward to seeing our customers at the expo.”
The conference remains affordable with an advance registration rate of $549 for members and a lower rate of $449 for additional registrants from the same dealership. RVDA also offers special registration payment plans, including an easy-pay plan of four payments and the ability to lock in early bird savings for additional employees with one paid convention registration.
Themed “Education: Your Competitive Advantage,” the convention will provide relevant learning opportunities for dealers and key members of their staff. Workshop tracks are in place for dealer/GMs, sales staff, parts and service managers, and finance and insurance professionals. New this year, Vendor Training +plus will allow registrants the opportunity for extended training during the first day and a half of the convention and it is included in the regular registration fee.
The 2013 convention will also feature an exhibit hall filled with the RV industry’s top companies offering products and services to help dealers improve profitability.
