Dealerships representing top brands coming to Dealer Forum

OPE dealership owners, general managers and staff members continue to flock to the registration site to sign up for the inaugural OPE Business Dealer Forum, being held Nov. 14-16 at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando.

It’s the only dealer-specific conference of its kind on the calendar, especially for those dealerships interested in business building heading into 2023.

The OPE Business content team of John Kmitta and Dave McMahon bring their combined over 20 years of OPE industry experience to spearhead the dealer training sessions.

As the registrations have continued, we took a look at the extensive number of brands that are carried by dealerships that have registered to attend the Dealer Forum. Disclosing brands is not part of the registration; the brands are on the dealership websites, which is where we searched.

Those brands with the heaviest presence of dealerships registered to attend include Briggs & Stratton, Cub Cadet, Exmark and Ferris. Also with a strong presence are Bad Boy, Billy Goat, Echo, Husqvarna, Kawasaki Engines, Kohler Engine, Shindaiwa, Snow-Ex, Stihl and Troy-Bilt.

“It’s fantastic to see such a wide variety of brands being represented by dealership owners and staff who have already registered for the inaugural Dealer Forum,” said OPE Business content director Dave McMahon. “It’s an outstanding opportunity to gather alongside your fellow dealer peers and learn best practices for success and profitability heading into 2023 and beyond. Manufacturers are encouraged to hop on board with us as well, as there’s no better time for you to build business with your dealer partners than at the Dealer Forum.”

You will simply spend 2.5 days getting smarter about how to run your brick-and-mortar dealership alongside like-minded owner/operators.
