Friday, Feb. 14, 1-2 p.m. PT, Room N220
Saturday, Feb. 15, 10:30-11:30 a.m. PT, Room N224


Digital retailing does everything from engaging shoppers to building a deal, securing financing and finalizing contracts. In this workshop, we’ll explore how you should evaluate and measure digital retailing solutions to ensure they’ll meet your goals of delivering a satisfying customer experience, increasing online leads, boosting sales conversion rates and generating more profit.

Ben Flusberg, AVP, M LOGIC
Friday, Feb. 14, 1-2 p.m. PT, Room N224
Sunday, Feb. 16, 9-10 a.m. PT, Room N224


In a very time-sensitive industry, you need to make smart, real-time decisions. With margins compressing, it’s even more imperative that you’re able to find the inventory you need quickly and efficiently. Now, artificial intelligence (AI) is adding science to the art of decision making. This workshop will show how using AI is not a futuristic aspiration, but something you can benefit from today for everything from personalized recommendations, valuation and enhanced vehicle imaging for confident online buying.


About Ben:
Ben Flusberg, Ph.D., is associate vice president of M LOGIC, a suite of decisioning products from Manheim, a Cox Automotive brand.

Ben has over 15 years of experience in technology and business innovation, management consulting, and blending quantitative data analytics with qualitative industry experience to drive client performance and efficiency.

Friday, Feb. 14, 1-2 p.m. PT, Room N228
Sunday, Feb. 16, 10:30-11:30 a.m. PT, Room N228


The needs, expectations and demands of today’s car shoppers are telling us a lot about the future of our industry. But looking at it through just the automotive-industry lens isn’t going to help how we approach the future of car shopping and buying. Whether it’s ordering diapers online, getting a refill on dog food through an Alexa voice command, or shopping for cars on your phone, today’s consumers expect to be guided through a frictionless experience from start to finish, no matter what they’re buying. We will focus on how to make sense of the myriad of touchpoints, technology and unknowns that lie ahead within the industry and in eCommerce, while keeping a focus on grounding your business with a purposeful shopping experience that results in positive experiences for you and your customers.


About Jessica:

As senior vice president and general manager of Autotrader, Jessica Stafford leads overall strategy and operations, including Business Operations and Customer Care, Analytics and Product Innovation to make the car shopping and buying experience easy and exciting by connecting buyers with sellers in a seamless way.

Focused on driving higher quality leads and actual sales for dealers, Jessica recently oversaw the dramatic transformation of the All-New Autotrader – a faster, more personalized online shopping experience that delivers true price confidence for today’s consumers and drives even more engaged shoppers to the most relevant dealer listings.

Presenter: Sandy Schwartz, President, Cox Automotive

REDUCING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Driving positive environmental change — inside our company and within the communities we serve — is one of the most important things we do at Cox. For the NADA Show 2020 we are committed to putting this value in action through reducing our exhibit buildout and team member impact to the Las Vegas community and overall environment. This industry leading initiative is only achievable with strong partners and clients like you. We will be honoring one of our clients with the annual Cox Automotive Leader in Sustainability Award at NADA and reporting our sustainability efforts back out to the industry after the event.

Fueling disaster relief efforts

Each time a dealer or manufacturer preschedules a Cox Automotive demo, we’ll make a $10 donation to the American Red Cross*. Together, we can fuel emergency responses and fund a fuel-efficient vehicle for the American Red Cross.
