Greg Goebel to Address Industry Summit and PALS

DALLAS — Organizers of the annual Industry Summit and P&A Leadership Summit have announced that subprime auto finance expert Greg Goebel will serve as the evening keynote speaker for this year’s event. Both events will be held in September at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Dallas, and Goebel will address both groups.

“Greg Goebel brings a unique and highly informed perspective to our stage, and we anticipate a full room for his presentation,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of F&I and Showroom and P&A magazines. “His constant, detailed monitoring and analysis of the special finance segment will prove invaluable to our group.”

Goebel’s address will begin at 5:05 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 12. As the CEO of DealerStrong, a prolific writer and speaker, and the industry’s leading special finance trainer and consultant, he is expected to deliver insights and analysis on the state of the auto finance industry and U.S. economy. He is also expected to release his highly anticipated Special Finance Benchmarks, an annual report based on data contributed by dealers nationwide.

“This is an excellent opportunity to get a large and diverse crowd up to speed on the SF industry,” Goebel said. “There is much to share and much to gain — for our companies, the industry, and our customers. We look forward to seeing you there.”

Registration is open at the event’s website. Attendees who register by Aug. 11 will enjoy a $100 discount. All attendees are invited to attend any session at Industry Summit, which also includes The Best Training Day Ever, F&I Think Tank and Compliance Summit.
