Auto Finance News today introduced a new event, called Auto Finance Accelerate. The week-long event series focuses on all facets of auto finance operations including sales, marketing, innovation, and risk. The inaugural Auto Finance Accelerate week will take place May 13-16, 2019, at the Omni San Diego.
Produced by Auto Finance News and Royal Media, Auto Finance Accelerate will consist of three events: the first ever Auto Finance Sales & Marketing Summit, the 4th annual Auto Finance Innovation Summit, and the 12th annual Auto Finance Risk Summit. Attendees have the option to participate in the full week or select one or more events. Registration can be submitted here.
Auto Finance Accelerate will kick off with the Auto Finance Sales & Marketing Summit, which will feature thought leaders discussing best practices for sales and marketing within an auto lending and leasing operation. Participants will gain insights on increasing volume in a declining sales environment, developing a direct lending marketing strategy, technologies to improve marketing efficiencies, and more.
That event will be followed by the Auto Finance Innovation Summit, which will delve into ways lenders can embrace new technologies and invest in innovation. The 2019 agenda focuses on topics such as the successes and pitfalls of subscription services, practical applications for machine learning, and increased competition in technologies and services.
In addition to practical insights, Auto Finance Innovation is the only event of its kind to feature demos of cutting-edge technology through its DEMOvation Challenge. Hosted in a unique setting where attendees have direct access to startups for questions and networking, this is a forum for showcasing new technologies that are disrupting the industry.
Even more opportunities will be available to attendees through the Auto Finance Risk Summit, an event focused on resolving the most critical risk factors lenders and lessors face today. The 2019 Auto Finance Risk Summit agenda will include sessions on the influence of used-car values on portfolio mix, vendor risk management, and protection against cybersecurity. Speakers will share their experiences and insights on how to utilize risk management to exact greater profits while minimizing losses.
With many elements of auto finance relying on proper risk management, this event will allow auto finance companies to develop a plan of action toward greater success.
The full speaker roster will be posted on the event’s official website and announced here on Auto Finance News as names are made available in the weeks and months to come.
