RICHMOND, Va. (Dec. 19, 2016) — The Virginia Automotive Association (VAA) will host its 2017 Convention and Trade Expo at the Williamsburg Lodge, Williambsburg, Va., April 28-30.
The trade expo weekend kicks off April 28 with the VAA Open Golf Tournament at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club in Williamsburg and a welcome reception later that evening.
The April 29 schedule offers educational opportunities that include a panel discussion with some of the industry's millennial leaders and two peer-to-peer roundtables — one for owners and key managers, and another for counter sales and service managers.
Guest speakers for the 2017 event include Audra Fordin, a fourth-generation shop owner in Flushing, N.Y., who is the author and founder of "Women Auto Know."
Mike Scott will give his keynote presentation, "Creating a Totally Accountable Workplace," during the Saturday evening banquet.
Additional details about the 2017 Convention and Trade Expo, including hotel reservation information, will be available in January on the VAA website.
