Ward's wants to invite you to join us in Tampa, FL, March 15-17 for the second annual Ward's Automotive Spring Training Conference.

Last year's conference was a hit, and deemed by participants as one of the premier events of the year.

We know that with all of the uncertainty surrounding the automotive industry, this is a tough time to be thinking about a conference.

But we also know, dealers will be selling cars in the future.

And Ward's wants to help you get — not only your fair share — but your unfair share of the market.

That means this is one conference you can't afford to miss.

Because we understand the market, Ward's is providing an early registration fee for dealers and their employees of $395.

That ends January 15, so be sure to sign up early.

In addition to exciting keynote speakers, we have designed informative workshops with the newest marketing strategies for dealers and general managers.

Most of this information is stuff your agencies don't even know yet.

We'll help you create the 21st century marketing department by showing you how to weave the power of the Web throughout all of your advertising efforts.

But we're not ignoring the so-called old media. We'll provide you with tips on how to make sure your TV, radio and print advertising outperforms your competition's.

You'll also learn how to use your inventory to drive showroom traffic.

We'll also show you how to use your database to turn your fixed operation department into the profit maker it should be.

And we'll also provide real life examples of how the Internet can help you promote your brand and make your dealership the place to buy from.

Also, Tampa in March means Spring Training and baseball. We'll have activities that no other industry conference has.

So make sure you're in a position to hit a home run in 2009.

See you in Tampa.
