Mike Burgiss to Discuss ‘Next-Level’ F&I Sales at Agent Summit


LAS VEGAS — Organizers of Agent Summit have announced that MakeMyDeal’s Mike Burgiss will present “Next-Level Product Sales” at the 2016 event, scheduled for May 9–11 at the Venetian Palazzo Las Vegas.

“Those who know Mike Burgiss know he is at the leading edge of F&I product sales,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Agent Entrepreneur and F&I and Showroom. “Agents and dealers who fail to stay abreast of the latest advances risk losing opportunities.”

Burgiss’ presentation will focus on protection-product sales in the dealership as well as with customers who wish to complete all or part of the F&I transaction at home or their place of business, online or by phone. He will also discuss new technology designed to maintain or improve production as car buyers’ preferences and demands continue to evolve.

“The opportunity for dealers to build a consumer’s intent to purchase F&I products is greater than it’s ever been, and delivering a modern and efficient experience in the business office is the perfect complement to a strong sales process,” Burgiss said. “Dealers and agents that adopt an online and digital mindset for F&I will continue to grow their businesses faster and stronger than the competition.”

Registration for Agent Summit is now open at the event’s website as well as by phone, fax and email. Attendees who register by April 4 will enjoy a $100 discount.
