The Australian Automotive Dealer Association has rescheduled its Convention and Expo to June 2 and 3, 2022 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The decision was made in consultation with members, sponsors, and industry partners, and due to the staffing issues and operational impact that the COVID-19 Omicron variant has presented for all businesses throughout Australia.
“Our members face a range of threats in the immediate future, those include the ongoing challenges in the franchise relationship, skills shortages, new vehicle inventory supply, used vehicle supply, declining F&I revenues and regulatory oversight, these are all vital issues to new car franchised dealers that will be covered at the 2022 AADA Convention and Expo,” AADA chief executive James Voortman says.
“The safety of our members and their staff is our number one priority, and we believe rescheduling this event is in the best interest of our members, sponsors and industry stakeholders.
“The automotive industry is going through a period of significant change, and it is more important than ever that Dealers unite to address common challenges. The convention provides the perfect opportunity for the industry to come together and tackle some of these issues head on.
“The Secretariat and the Convention team will be working around the clock to deliver the first- class event that our members deserve,” he says.
