Brown & Brown is RVDA Expo Bronze Partner
The Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) announced that Brown & Brown Recreational Insurance is a Bronze level Partner for the 2014 RV Dealers International Convention/Expo, Nov. 10-14, at Bally’s in Las Vegas. According to a press release, the convention is sponsored by RVDA, RVDA of Canada, and the Mike Molino RV Learning Center.
“Generous partners like Brown & Brown Recreational Insurance strengthen the entire industry by supporting affordable education for dealers,” said RVDA Convention/Expo Committee Chairman John McCluskey of Florida Outdoors RV in Stuart, Fla. “Our industry is better off thanks to the commitment of our corporate partners. We are grateful for their support of the Convention/Expo.”
“Brown & Brown is thrilled to once again be part of the 2014 RVDA convention as a Bronze supporter,” said Mike Neal, executive vice president of Brown & Brown of Kentucky. “We all here at Brown & Brown strive every day to train and help our dealers achieve their best potential. Tuesday morning of the convention, our National Trainer Shawn Moran, alongside Janet Scavo, our Midwest RV Leader will be sharing their time in the Vendor Training +Plus Workshop. We have had tremendous internal growth this year and are excited to share with dealers what we can offer them. Our whole team will be on the convention floor as well, showing dealers in depth what makes Brown & Brown the leader in the RV finance product division.”
Themed “Passport to Excellence: Education & Training,” the convention program has been expanded to include training and education for all dealership staff, with programs for young executives and a special emphasis on digital marketing and social media. Back for a second year, Vendor Training +Plus on Monday and Tuesday will offer more training opportunities, followed by track workshops for Dealer/GMs and managers in sales, service, parts, and rental operations.
The 2014 convention will feature an exhibit hall filled with the RV industry’s top companies offering products and services to help dealers improve profitability. In addition, RVDA’s Partners in Progress committees will meet to work on important dealer-manufacturer issues.
The expanded training and exhibits increase the convention’s value for all dealership management. To encourage dealers to bring more staff, the registration rate has been kept low, with discounts for additional staff members. RVDA also continues to offer helpful registration payment plans, including an easy pay plan of three payments and the ability to lock in early rates for additional employees with one paid convention registration.
