IMDA - About our Annual Conference

IMDA's Annual Conference is an event not to be missed.  Each year IMDA provides a conference to allow face to face member activities and Manufacturers Forum

The Annual Conference is all about networking.  Networking with other dealers, manufacturers, industry leaders that affect our day to day businesses, and much more

Day 1 - The Annual Conference starts with a golf outing to kick off the fun.  Last year about 25 people participated in this event.  It is a great time to network with others while playing golf. There are a few minor awards and prizes but fun and networking are the key.

After the Golf outing the meeting kicks off with the opening session.  The opening session is an educational session with the conference overview as its highlight.

After the opening session, there will be a cocktail party in the Manufacturer's Forum Room.  When you enter the room you will see tables around the room staffed by manufacturers that want to meet you and show you their latest techologies.  While enjoying hors d'oeuvres you can meet new people and network with all the attendees of the conference.  This even will conclude day one of the conference.

Day 2 - Day two starts with breakfast in the manufacturer's forum room.  This is a good time to visit with any booths you missed during day one. Day two is the educational day of the conference where we invite key opinion leaders and expersts in to educate members about thier specialty. Some of the topics at past meetings are;

  • Value Analysis
  • Supply Chain issues

After the morning educational breakouts there is a business meeting for members. The IMDA Association reports on all of the business of the association during or after lunch in the manufacturer's forum room

The afternoon of Day two will be more educational breakouts.  The day ends with a sit down dinner in the manufacturer's forum room.  There is a short awards ceremony that ends day two.
