The North American Equipment Dealers Association has been asked to assist with programming for the Dealer Summit during the Dealer Day at GIE+EXPO on Wednesday, October 23.  NAEDA’s Outdoor Power Equipment Council (comprised of top OPE dealer representatives from NAEDA’s regional affiliates) has provided direction into this program with a recommendation for a moderated manufacturer panel discussion.

The Dealer Summit will be held at the EXPO Center on Wednesday, October 23rd from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm.  The Summit begins with a luncheon at noon, followed by an Industry Update.  The Manufacturer Panel will run roughly from 1:30 to 3:00 pm.  We have selected a top notch panel with a thorough representation of the industry.

Michael Happe, Group Vice President, The Toro Company

Michael Rudolph, Asst. Vice-President, Power Equipment Division, American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

A listed of questions/issues have been solicited from OPE dealers throughout North America.  The questions and discussion will cover broader industry terms and will cover any proprietary company information.

Question cards will also distributed to the audience to solicit additional questions onsite.  The moderator will screen these questions.  Follow-up questions from the moderator and/or audience will be encouraged

Our goal is to share the broad industry expertise on the panel participants and dealers to gain a better perspective of the industry, present and future.
