by the number of dealers present and the amount of product on display. Sources in Elkhart County noted the event's tremendous success and I am confident that we will be looking at a strong 2015!
I want to remind you that the RV Dealers International Convention is still coming up in November. Numerous new speakers are going to be presenting and we have added a new Social Media / e-Marketing track. For further information on the Convention, please visit the following website: www.rvda.org/convention. We will also be hosting a Canadian marketing session on the Tuesday sponsored by Go RVing Canada. Make sure you attend this seminar to gain valuable knowledge and specific tactics to help you optimize your digital marketing efforts.
The RVDA of Canada will also be holding its Annual Meeting on the Thursday afternoon at the Convention. I will give you a brief highlight of some of the Association's recent endeavours and then we will have Scott Wilson, a leading authority on Web sales, internet marketing and Social Media, using Search Engine Optimization (SEO) speak to us about key principles of configuring websites. Scott will also explain how companies can take advantage of the dynamic changes being made by Google as it strives to give its users information of better quality and diversity. Scott is a very dynamic speaker and I know that you will enjoy this presentation. So if you have not signed up for the Convention, please do so today.
In a few short weeks many of us will be making the trek to Louisville, Kentucky, for the RVIA show. If you happen to be coming into town on Monday, make sure you join us for our annual Canada Night Dinner being held at the Galt House Hotel. You will have an opportunity to network with fellow Canadians, celebrate the 2014 Dealer of the Year, be served an delicious meal, as well as, be entertained by famous Canadian, Jon Montgomery. For those of you who are not familiar with Jon, he came to fame after winning Gold in the 2010 Olympics and walking through Whistler Village with a jug of beer. I think he'll fit into the RV industry just fine!
I would really like to personally thank all the sponsors who have stepped up to help put this event on with us. We truly could not do this without you. Your continued support is greatly appreciated and we are proud to call you true partners.
This will be my last newsletter message to you as I will be turning the Chairman's gavel over in November. I want to thank all of you for your encouragement and input over this past year. It has really been a very rewarding experience for me and I hope that I have served you well.
Have a continued good fall season.
All the best,
Kyle Redmond, Chairman of the Board
RVDA of Canada
