TIADA CONFERENCE & EXPO
San Antonio, Texas
What is the TIADA Conference & Expo? Simply put, it is your opportunity to improve your business. The best education, connections with the top operators in the state, an Expo with 100+ relevant and motivated vendors – it’s all here set against the magnificent resort – the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, Texas.
We are proud to welcome auto dealers in all lines of business from all across the country to our conference.
The conference will take place from July 23-25, 2023 and will be held at the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, Texas.
Automobile dealers of all types from across the country attend our conference. While some of our education is geared specifically toward Texas independent automobile dealers, if you sell used cars in the U.S. you will benefit from this conference. We have something for seasoned owners and top level managers as well as the newest person in sales, IT, collections, make ready or compliance.
That depends. For association dealer members it costs $595 to register, but we do offer an early bird rate that will save you $100 if you pull the trigger before Friday, June 23rd. We also offer tiered pricing, so the more people you bring, the more you save.
Dealer registration will start March 1st.
BREAKOUT SESSIONS: You’ll find a total of 29 hours of quality education on Monday and Tuesday, which includes a variety of traditional presentations, panel discussions, and dealer presentations. Learning tracks will include BHPH, Special Finance & Retail, Compliance, Management, and Marketing & Technology.
DEALER-DRIVEN ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSIONS: These discussions are held BY dealers FOR dealers, creating a remarkably open environment where some of the top professionals in the state will discuss best practices, share their honest opinions about the industry, and give you a chance to do so as well.

Hey, it’s a resort! Bring your spouse, guests, and kids if that makes it easier for you to attend and let them enjoy the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort. And, to make it even more enjoyable for you, we have options to purchase extra Expo Hall passes and awards dinner tickets if you want to bring the family to any of those events too.
Yes, one day dealer passes are available for $300 (and $400 for non-members).
Yes, the word is out, TIADA has one of the best if not the best conference in the country and we traditionally have dealers from other states attend our conference. And, if you are a member of your state’s association you are eligible to attend for the Texas IADA member rate.
Yes, if you have a significant pre-owned operation and you’re looking for compliance training or industry best practices you will find the best and the brightest business talent at our conference. Make sure you send someone from your dealership and if you are a member of TADA you can attend for the TIADA member rate.
Associate members are welcome to register for the conference, but only in conjunction with a sponsorship. However, our sponsorships are limited and we are already sold out. Secure your sponsorship early for 2024 soon so you don’t miss out next year.
We suggest you wear business casual attire most of the time but keep in mind this is a resort and it is July in Texas so make sure you are comfortable throughout the day. If you plan to attend the Awards Banquet on Tuesday night, it’s a little dressy; a jacket for the men and that dress you never get to wear for the ladies.
As long as you let us know by July 14th we provide a full refund. After that date, we can offer credit toward other TIADA events.
Sure, we can’t imagine not attending but we know things come up. If you can’t make it we will be happy to transfer your registration. Just notify us as soon as you can so we can make the new attendee feel welcome.
Conference dealer registration starts March 1st.
