NADA delivers the highest educational program in the industry. It is multifaceted, interactive and allows you to customize your learning not only by track, but your preferred learning style. We pragmatically tackle the big issues to give you a fresh new perspective and real world solutions to take back to your dealership.
In addition to our traditional workshops, we have developed Studio sessions for the more hands-on learner:
> Studio: Interactive Learning Session
An alternative to NADA’s traditional workshop format, Studio sessions encourages collaborative hands-on learning between presenters and attendees. Attendees will benefit from the same great workshop content, but in a unique room set-up that will promote interaction between the presenter and attendees. The Studio will host a limited number of workshop sessions; check the full schedule for details.
For our attendees that prefer to learn through networking with others, we have created The Exchange:
> The Exchange: Peer-to-Peer Learning
An all-new space for you to connect with subject-matter-experts and your peers on pressing industry topics. NADA Instructors will lead short, educational presentations followed by open round-table discussions. Topics covered at The Exchange will be pre-determined and seating is on a first come basis.
