Call for Speakers: P&A Leadership Summit

LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the annual P&A Leadership Summit have put out a call for featured speakers and panel participants for the 2016 event, which will be held Aug. 30–31 at Paris Las Vegas.

Show Chair David Gesualdo said the agenda already includes several topics of interest to executives in the F&I industry, including a featured presentation on how vehicles and travel will look in the future and the expected impact on the F&I industry; a presentation on current trends affecting GAP losses; panel discussions on electronic signature technology and moving F&I products online, and much more.

“What we are looking for now are one or two additional topics and unique perspectives to round out the agenda,” said Gesualdo, who also serves as publisher of P&A magazine. “We want to tackle the issues you face today and the issues you will face in the future.”

Gesualdo said prospective speakers should submit proposals that include the following information:

  • Category and proposed topic
  • Brief biography, including prior speaking engagements, if applicable
  • 500-word presentation description, including a statement that completes the following sentence: “After completing this session, attendees will be provided with …”

Final selection will be left to members of the PALS advisory board. Featured speakers and moderators responding to this call are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses.
