David Westcott

In addition to the Steve Forbes keynote, the 2013 NADA Chairman and President of Westcott Automotive in Burlington, North Carolina, David Westcott, will be giving the opening general presentation on Saturday from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Mr. Westcott is the vice chairman of the NADA this year and has been one of the most successful automotive dealers in the country for some time. He has worked hard to achieve his success and has also given back to the community in many different ways. You won’t want to miss what is no doubt going to be an interesting and informative keynote speech.

Lifestyle Experience

There are many things that you should check out at the 2014 NADA, but another must hit event is the Lifestyle Experience. There are four different lifestyle experiences in different halls of the Expo Hall. There is the Beauty and Fashion experience by Saks Fifth Avenue, the Lifetime experience that has a golf clinic, jewelry making, handwriting analysis, and psychics, the Mind Body and Spirit experience where you can have a healthy heart screening, a bone density screening, a skin conditioning (derma view) screening, take part in aromatherapy, or participate in one of the Fitness Presentations. The fitness presentations feature Laughter Yoga, Pound, which is a full-body cardio session, or Hoola Hooping sessions.

ATD Sunday Night Gala

After the speakers and sessions during the day on Sunday, you can head on out to the Arnaud’s in the French Quarter. Arnaud’s is located just a short walk from Bourbon Street and offers classic Creole Cuisine. The ATD Sunday Night Gala will be at Arnaud’s so come on out, but be sure to pick up tickets before the night. If you need something to go to earlier in the conference, then you can check out the NADA Dealer Appreciation Creole Queen Paddlewheel party on Friday, January 24, at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center at 5:30 p.m.
