The FAQ’s About NABD
by Kenneth B. Shilson,
Houston, Texas – With less than
thirty days remaining before the 10th Annual National Buy Here, Pay Here Conference on May 6-8, 2008 in Las Vegas, I have received numerous calls regarding the event. The most
frequently asked question (FAQ’s) and my responses follow:
Question 1: Given the very difficult economy, should I
spend the time and money to come this year?
Answer: The difficult economic environment
presents some new and different challenges caused by the subprime mortgage crisis, tightening capital markets, inflationary cost increases,
immigration issues and others. You can try to solve these problems by yourself using trial and error, or you can network with others which
will save you millions of dollars in losses. In the long term, the aforementioned challenges will create many new BHPH customers and
unprecedented profit opportunities but you must get past the next twelve months in order to capitalize on them!
Question 2: Where and how can I obtain the capital
needed to face these current challenges?
Answer: We have assembled virtually all of the
industry’s major capital providers at the show who will explain what to do. In addition, many other capital providers are attending. We have
three separate presentations designed specifically to identify and help you obtain the capital you need. This is a unique opportunity to meet
them all in one place and to network with them.
Question 3: I came last year so will I hear anything new
at NABD 2008?
Answer: Remember this is the only event each
year exclusively for buy here, pay here. The industry is changing so rapidly twelve months is a lifetime! We have added many new speakers and
presentations this year like a financial managers panel, an advertising experts panel, and six excellent workshops. None of these were part of
prior shows. In addition, the benchmarks and industry trend and outlook information you receive will be invaluable as you navigate through
Question 4: If I'm new to the industry or just
considering entering it, will the show benefit me?
Answer: Yes, we have three separate
presentations for people who are new to the industry. In addition, networking with many successful operators and a trip through our “sold out”
exhibit hall will also be beneficial. Many new car franchise dealers have already registered as they consider buy here, pay here as an
important new profit center.
Question 5: Can we still get discounted room rates at
the Las Vegas Hilton?
Answer: Yes, but you must act quickly! Our room
block expires on Friday, April 11 and is subject to availability so you need to reserve your room today to be assured of substantial
discounts. All of the rooms have been updated and renovated and upgrades are available.
Question 6: Who should I bring?
Answer: This year’s program is designed for
owners, finance managers, general managers, supervisors and all of your key employees. All will benefit from the general education sessions,
the workshops and vendor presentations, and networking with their peers. Because some of the sessions are concurrent, at least two attendees
from each company is recommended.
Question 7: How can I register?
Answer: Online at www.bhphinfo.com, by fax at 713-680-2474, or by phone at 713-290-8171. Availability
is limited so everyone is encouraged to register as soon as possible.
Question 8: What can I expect to learn from this year’s
Answer: The conference theme is “Facing New
Challenges.” The educational program will focus on proven strategies to improve profits and cash flow, where to find capital, how to locate
the best customers, and how to avoid legal and regulatory mistakes that can be very costly. Given the difficult economy, this conference has
been structured to prepare attendees to meet all these challenges more successfully. This is our tenth anniversary show and we consider it our
most important show!
