The Perfect Expansion To In-Person Events

This powerful supplement to in-person event sponsoring offers unique marketing capabilities that complement existing in-person efforts.

Expanded Reach

Travel restrictions and budgetary-based roadblocks for a standard in-person event are removed – allowing for a larger audience of your high value prospects to attend.

Expanded Influence

Some public fleets with a finite budget that may have traditionally had to pick and choose only key individuals to attend can now expand the opportunity to more of their team – across multiple disciplines.

Expanded Frequency

Your digital footprint and ROI is not limited to the LIVE iteration. Garner additional exposure, engagement and leads well after the 12-month archival period – plus our archival marketing campaigns.

General FAQs

When is the next Conference of Autmotive Remarketing (CAR) in-person event being held?

Because the safety and health of our attendees and partners is of paramount importance at this time, the next time we will “meet” will be during the CAR Experience, a virtual event will take place on October 12-16, 2020. We plan to resume our in-person event in 2021, provided it is safe to do so. We will announce dates and a location soon. In the meantime, we encourage you to plan on joining us online for the CAR Experience.

I paid for a pass for the 2020 Las Vegas event. Can I get a refund? What will happen to my registration?

We hope you will still plan to attend when we announce our new dates! Your registration is still in place and it will automatically rollover into the new conference dates. If you would still like a refund, please email us at [email protected]. Please understand refunds can have a processing time of up to 30 days.

What if I am not able to attend in the new location and dates?

We encourage you to stick with us until we announce our new in-person event dates. If at that time you determine you are unable to attend, we can either roll your registration into a future date or issue a refund.

How much does it cost to attend the CAR Experience?

Remarketing industry professionals may register for the CAR Experience at no charge. Supplier/Provider companies must pay a fee to participate as a sponsor or attendee. If you are a industry supplier/provider, CLICK HERE to register. 

How can I register for the CAR Experience?

Registration is now open! CLICK HERE to register. 

Where can I see the schedule and speakers for the CAR Experience?

The schedule is available HERE and the speakers are available HERE

I can only attend portions of the CAR Experience, is it still okay to register?

Yes, and we encourage that! Once you register, you will receive a link to the schedule and notifications of upcoming sessions and networking. You can attend all or part of the Experience depending on your schedule and interests.

I registered for the CAR Experience and didn't get an email confirmation.

First, check your SPAM or Junk folder on the day you registered. If you still do not see a confirmation email, please contact us at [email protected].

Sponsor FAQs

Can I transfer my booth space or sponsorship into an CAR Experience sponsorship?

Yes, just contact your sales rep or learn more about our packages here.

Are refunds being issued for Exhibit Space and Sponsorships for the 2020 in-person event?

Since we are working on new dates for our in-person event, all Exhibit and Sponsorship contracts are still in place and will automatically be incorporated into the new conference dates. Your booth space will be maintained in the rescheduled dates.

What if the new date of the rescheduled in-person event does not work for me?

We will work directly with our Sponsor/Exhibitors, on a case-by-case basis, if the new rescheduled show dates do not align with your availability.

How can my company get more information on becoming a sponsor?
