SMYRNA, TN – The National Association of Fleet Resale Dealers (NAFRD) will hold its 22nd annual conference at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Sept. 7-10, 2006, featuring educational sessions hosted by Jones Loflin, author of Juggling Elephants, Chuck Parker of Automotive Digest, and Clive Kinross of Onlane.

Other featured events include NAFRD’s second-annual live auction of items including a golf driver, California wine, sports memorabilia, a shotgun, and jewelry. The recreational activity for this year’s conference is a professionally run Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament with a guaranteed first place payout of $1,000. Payouts will go to the top eight finishers with 2nd-8th amounts determined by the number of entries. NAFRD will also host a 50/50 raffle drawing during the conference. Tickets will be available onsite for $25 per ticket or five for $100.

"NAFRD is now 20 years strong, not ‘old,’ but strong,” said Jay Cadle, NAFRD president. “Those of you in attendance at the 2005 convention saw that strength in the "new beginnings" of NAFRD remarketing. The excitement generated in the educational seminars was phenomenal. Several members told me they used some of the techniques they learned and immediately increased profits. The new board is dedicated to stay the course suggested at the past presidents meeting and furthered at the conference by continuing to bring the best education and information available to our members."

Registration deadline for the conference is Aug. 18. Call (800) 634-6661 to make hotel reservations at Caesars Palace by August 15. Mention you are attending with NAFRD. Click on the following link to view the event’s agenda and download registration and sponsorship forms:
