Over 700 remarketing, automotive finance, automotive retail, and fleet attendees were on hand at the 2017 Auto Remarketing Canada conference in Toronto, Ontario.

For 2017, the event split the workshops and sessions into three different tracks; retail, auto finance, and remarketing. Day one features concurrent workshops that offered multiple options for each track. While day two offered general sessions for each track.

“This years Auto Remarketing Canada conference exceeded our expectations in many ways. The attendance level, the quality of the content and the engagement of the attendees was better and at a higher mark than we could've asked for,” said Bill Zadeits, Conference Chair, Auto Remarketing Canada. “The expansion of the content to include three tracks focused on retail, remarketing and finance was very well received. We look forward to building on the success of this year’s event as we begin planning for next April.”

Keynotes were also a big part of the conference and covered a wide array of topics. Some highlights include: Used Vehicle Market Outlook in Canada and the U.S, Selling to the Only True ‘New’ customers, Canadian Used Vehicle Sales: Trends and Insights, and more.

"The Auto Remarketing Canada Conference is always a great networking opportunity for remarketers from all facets of the industry," said Claudio De Angelis, Remarketing Manager, Foss National Leasing.

An expo was the networking area of the show, as those in the industry spoke about everything to do with remarketing. Exhibitors on hand included: ADESA, Canadian Black Book, CARPROOF, Cox Automotive, and North Toronto Auction.

"This Conference never fails to deliver the best venue to network with Canada's auto industry elite and get knowledge from leading automotive expert presentations," said Brad Rome, President, Canadian Black Book. "Canadian Black Book was honored to present the Executive of the Year Award to a true leader, Alan Bird, of SCI Marketview."
