The National Independent Automobile Dealers Association is joining Used Car Week as one of its industry partners, Cherokee Media Group and NIADA announced.

Used Car Week is a series of used vehicle-specific conferences held each November and produced by CMG.

Used Car Week 2015 is scheduled for November 16-20 at the Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz.

NIADA joins the National Auto Auction Association and the National Automotive Finance Association in the special category of Used Car Week industry partners.



"We are very excited to have NIADA as one of the specially designated industry partners," Used Car Week chairman Bill Zadeits said. "Steve Jordan, Scott Lilja and the team at NIADA have been such great supporters of the used car industry and advocates for independent dealers for so long, and we're pleased that we can team with them to continue and build on that effort with this partnership for Used Car Week."

Used Car Week was created to provide a central gathering place for the used vehicle industry to share new ideas, best practices, data, information and more to the benefit of the people, key stakeholders and companies that comprise the industry.

The annual event has grown in attendance and stature over the past five years. In conjunction with its industry partners, NAAA, NAF Association and now NIADA, it will continue to serve the industry with a broader footprint and in a greater capacity.

"Used Car Week has evolved into a major gathering place for the used vehicle industry's leadership to share best practices, build new partnerships and participate in informative and relevant industry educational sessions," said Lilja, NIADA's senior vice president of dealer services. "We look forward to participating, networking, and becoming a major influence within the UCW program."
