BRIGHTON, MI - Helping Trailer Dealers Succeed is the theme for the 20th Annual National Trailer Dealers Association Convention, Oct. 14-15, 2010, at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort and Spa in Palm Springs, Calif.

As the industry's only voice and organization for independent trailer dealers, the National Trailer Dealers Association (NTDA) is working harder than ever to ensure dealers' core business concerns are addressed at its Convention.

Dealers, manufacturers and affiliated industry businesses and organizations will benefit from industry-specific education, including: how to make your book of business (e.g., inventory financing, lines of credit, working capital, retail financing, etc.) more attractive to lenders; discover how CARB is impacting dealer trailer trade-in values across the country, and its effect on the new and used trailer market; find out just where the market is headed from a top industry research authority; potentially thwart employee and customer fraud in your dealership; prepare your dealership to deal with Red Flag Rules, understand your dealership's benchmarking tools and how to use them to improve your bottom line, and much more.

Since 1990, the NTDA has been providing trailer dealers, manufacturers and affiliated industry firms with unparalleled networking opportunities, and a forum to help dealers succeed through education and training at its annual Convention.

Dealer principals, owners and managers are certain to succeed by connecting with one of the largest networks of trailer dealers and manufacturers in the country all in one location.
