While many of us are basking in record-breaking high temperatures this week, five short months from now we’ll be celebrating at the 2nd annual Powersports Business Accelerate Conference at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, Nov. 14-16. We'll look forward to more temperate climes there.
"We're continuing to build the education session lineup so that our dealer attendees can walk away with impactful ideas for 2023 growth," said Dave McMahon, Powersports Business content director and curator of the dealer education sessions. "At the same time, the sponsorship support of the conference has taken on a life of its own in recent weeks, with plenty more to come. We're excited to once again bring together dealers and business partners who can help them become more profitable in a setting like no other in the industry."
Sponsors have remarked on the event's ease-of-use. Conversations and networking are the focal points of the sponsor networking rooms, with all sponsors receiving a 6-foot long table. Bag-check a pull-up banner or two for behind the table and perhaps a tablecloth with a logo on it, and the shipping expenses are minimal. With lunches and networking receptions held in the same room throughout the event, it's an ideal setup for all.
In fact, here's a look at some of the sponsor tables from 2021 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta (with a cameo from Crossroad Powersports and Broward Motorsports of West Palm Beach dealers to get things started!).
