P&A Leadership Summit Returns to Las Vegas Aug. 30


LAS VEGAS — Organizers of P&A Leadership Summit announced that the fourth annual event will be held Aug. 30–31, 2016, at Paris Las Vegas. PALS is the industry’s only event designed for executives working in the F&I product provider and administrator segment.

Describing last year’s conference as “an event to remember,” show chair David Gesualdo said organizers will build on that momentum in 2016.

“We have a lot of positive energy on our side as we enter the early stages of planning the event, convening an advisory board and building the agenda,” said Gesualdo, who also serves as publisher of F&I and Showroom and P&A magazines. “That work has already begun and we will continue working through the summer.”

This year’s agenda will include educational sessions organized into four categories: Product, Actuary, Technology and Operations. As in years past, the two-day schedule will also include keynote addresses and networking opportunities.

Registration for the event is expected to open soon. For updates and industry news, attendees are encouraged to subscribe to P&A’s free enewsletter.
