After 3 years of hosting Kijiji’s annual DealerTalk conference in Toronto it’s time to GO WEST!

Following up on our 3rd sold event in Toronto we decided to take the show to Calgary on October 1st and showcase some of the best speakers on the circut for our Western Canadian dealerships.

Alberta consists of some of our most loyal and progressive dealers on Kijiji so it was a no-brainer to host the event in cow-town.

When: Thursday October 1st

Where: Arts Common, Calgary, 205 8th Avenue S.E – Visit Website

Time: 8am Registration.  Event Duration 9am – 130pm.  Half Day event

Marcus Sheridan to headline again!!

So after hosting 3 of these conferences I haven’t been moved as much by any speaker as I was by Marcus Sheridan.  Okay, that’s a lie.  Theo Fleury was unreal last year but it’s pretty hard to compare those two topics.

I’ve been following Marcus for the last few years and his story about turning his swimming pool company around back in 2008 using content marketing is one of my favourites.  Marcus brought some real interesting perspectives to what he though was wrong in the car business.   If you aren’t reading his Sales Lion blog you need to start.

Basically customers want transparency and our industry is still having a real hard time with this.   However, there are a few good examples out there and Marcus is sure to sprinkle those real life examples into this talk.

Marcus is going to be super high intensity.  Don’t be surprised if he doesn’t spend more than 5 minutes on the stage.  Instead, you can find him wandering around the audience getting right into the thick of things.

I chopped up his Toronto presentation into 5 minutes to give you an idea of what you’re going to experience.

You can the entire speaker line up and agenda on the Dealer Talk website — DealerTalk Website

Look forward to seeing you all there.  Be sure to let me know if you’re attending but tweeting at me @ryan_dealergeek and use the hashtag #dealertalk2015

Thanks to our sponsor CarProof for all of the support. Definitely couldn’t have put this on without them.

The whole Kijiji crew won’t be able to make it but thought I’d share this picture of the best team in the business after our Toronto event.
