Full Agenda Released for Agent Summit

LAS VEGAS — Organizers of Agent Summit have released the full agenda for this year’s event, which will be held May 9–11 at the Venetian Palazzo Las Vegas.

The agenda includes a pre-conference Agent Principals Only Breakfast & Roundtable and Reinsurance Symposium, keynote addresses, networking opportunities and a total of 12 featured presentations and panel discussions dedicated to Technology, Compliance, Training, Coaching & Development, Profit Opportunities and Selling to Dealers. This year, for the first time, attendees will have the opportunity to use buttons on the online agenda to submit questions to be answered by panelists.

The agenda is the result of work done by Randy Crisorio, president and CEO of United Development Systems Inc. (UDS), who chairs the event’s advisory board, and board members John Braganini of Great Lakes Companies, EasyCare’s Larry Dorfman, Eric Fifield of EFG Companies, Joel Kansanback of Automotive Development Group (ADG) and Dealer Commitment Services’ Glen Tuscan.

The team spent several weeks reviewing past agendas, discussing new topics and speakers and weighing suggestions from agents and agent principals nationwide. Crisorio said the agenda reflects the board’s goal of providing a comprehensive education covering every facet of the agency business.

“I’m confident that those in the know that have attended in recent years remain on the leading edge of the F&I business. It’s led by Summit content which has grown off the charts,” Crisorio said. “But don’t slow-walk the value of networking, as moneymaking gains are confirmed hourly among attendees. Personal growth is the hallmark of this event, and I think the name should be changed to The Money Summit!”

Organizers noted that space in the Agent Summit room block at the Venetian Palazzo will only be open until April 14 or until the block is full. Registration, hotel and travel information for Agent Summit is available at the event’s website as well as by phone, fax and email.
