Fairfax, Va.-based Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) announced today (June 3) the addition of GE Capital, Commercial Distribution Finance (CDF) as a Gold Sponsor of the 2011 RV Dealers International Convention/Expo.
Sponsored by RVDA, RVDA of Canada and the RV Learning Center, the expo is scheduled for Oct. 3-7 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
“There is no way RVDA or the RV Learning Center could provide the variety and depth of continuing education sessions offered at the convention without the support GE Capital and other sponsoring companies,” said RVDA Convention/Expo Committee Chairman Peter Albano of American RV in Olive Branch, Miss. “We thank them for demonstrating an outstanding commitment to their dealer business partners.”
GE Capital, Commercial Distribution Finance is a leading provider of specialized financing and servicing programs in the U.S. and Canada that facilitate the manufacture, distribution and sale of RVs, watercraft, motorsports, technology products, electronics and appliances, industrial equipment, outdoor power equipment, office products, musical instruments, trailers, and other consumer durables.
“GE Capital supports the mission of the RVDA, particularly the dealer education component,” said Peter Lannon, managing director for CDF’s RV business. “We are dedicated to the RV industry in the USA and Canada, and we continue to invest in effective means to strengthen RV dealers. GE Capital is proud to increase our sponsorship for the 2011 Dealer Expo.”
Themed “ReVolution: Take Charge Today,” the convention will feature new, in-depth “super sessions” covering the top issues RV dealers and their employees are facing right now. The education program will include information on building sales through innovative marketing strategies to reach new customers and an overview of the short and long-term trends that will impact the RV industry.
To make the convention as affordable as possible, the registration fee for dealership employees is the same as last year. RVDA is also offering special registration 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.
