ITDG Plans Regional Meetings for Dealers

Posted on September 5, 2019

Independent Tire Dealers Group LLC (ITDG) is taking its show on the road in a series of seven regional meetings designed to make it easier and less expensive for members to attend.

Each of the meetings will be co-hosted by ITDG's vendor partners representing different segments of the industry: tires, parts, wheels, accessories, insurance, financing and more. Twenty-three ITDG vendors will help host the gatherings.

Here's the meeting schedule:

Chicago, Ill.: Tuesday, Oct. 8

Portland, Ore.: Wednesday, Oct. 16

Atlanta, Ga.: Tuesday, Oct. 29

Los Angeles, Calif.: Wednesday, Nov. 13

Stockton, Calif.: Thursday, Nov. 14

Houston, Texas: Tuesday, Nov. 19

Phoenix, Az.: Wednesday, Dec. 4

The days will be split into two sections. The morning will consist of vendor presentations and question and answer sessions. After lunch, the afternoons will be for ITDG members only and will consist of a brief ITDG business update and information about the future, plus round table discussion.

Each ITDG member is asked to bring a business practice or idea that has helped their business remain relevant and competitive in the market.

Dave Marks, CEO and president of ITDG, says, “These meetings are very beneficial and informative for both our vendors and members. This gives our vendor partners an opportunity to spend quality time with our members, while giving our members an opportunity to learn more about the programs and value offered by our vendor partners."

Those who are interested in attending a meeting or joining ITDG should email Chris Barry or Jeremy Guy.
