AFSA Hosting 20th Annual Vehicle Finance Conference and Expo Next Week

WASHINGTON DC, March 24, 2016 – The American Financial Services Association (AFSA) hosts its 20th annual Vehicle Finance Conference and Expo next week at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, March 29-31.

One of the first events of the year for the vehicle finance industry, the conference has become the premier event for the industry.

This year’s conference will feature topics such as cyber security, car-sharing and the new market, and hiring and retaining millennials.

The conference keynote will be presented by Dr. Frank Luntz, one of the most sought-after pollsters and communications experts in the country. He will be covering word-usage in the 2016 political election cycle, as well as in today’s business climate, and reviewing results of his polling.

AFSA’s CEO Panel will feature key industry executives sharing best practices, compliance hurdles, and critical opportunities in the fast-moving marketplace of auto finance. Joy Falotico (Vehicle Finance Division Chair and Chief Operating Officer, Ford Motor Credit) and Jeffrey Carlson (2016 NADA Chairman and President, Glenwood Springs Ford, Inc.) will kick off the final day of the conference with a frank discussion about the important relationship between dealers and financing sources.

Registration for the conference has grown steadily over the last decade and AFSA is pleased to announce that attendance at the 2016 conference has set a new record as more than 600 attendees will gather in Las Vegas to network, learn from the experts, and visit the conference’s more than 65 exhibitors.

AFSA represents nearly every captive auto finance company in the U.S., as well as the auto finance divisions of major banks, and a large portion of independent vehicle finance sources across the U.S. AFSA’s Vehicle Finance Conference and Expo is held every year in the same city, and immediately preceding, the annual National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) convention.
