We've witnessed unprecedented levels of volatility in the last several years. And seasoned dealers have been left scrambling to right-size inventories more than once. There have been pain points for decades when lots didn't have enough vehicles, too many vehicles or the wrong vehicles. Prepare to pivot ahead of market fluctuations and inventory volatility through better data to value cars accurately, buy more profitable vehicles and manage inventory. Explore ways to diversify acquisition strategy, including creating a better buy center and unique methods to buy from consumers.

ACV TEC Talks
ACV is proud to announce the launch of its latest programming at NADA 2023 with our new TEC Talks series. These unique, intimate learning workshops aim to tackle topical issues facing dealers today–from wholesale acquisition strategies to managing increases in aged used inventory, pricing challenges, and more. Hosted by ACV auto experts Randy Barone and Doug Hadden, these 20-minute TED Talk-style conversations invite our fellow dealer partners to participate in the conversation and share best practices and learnings as we navigate the rapidly changing used car industry. Dealers can drop in at booth #3141 to learn how vehicle data and inspection technology can optimize their dealership operations and break away from the pack in the coming year.

NADA Exhibitor Pitch Competition
Don’t miss ACV’s technology thought-leaders and engineers, Senior Director of Research and Development Michael Pokora and Director of Research and Development Philip Schneider, Ph.D competing in the first-ever NADA Exhibitor Pitch Competition.
Friday, January 27 from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. CT on the main stage!
Pokora and Schneider will highlight ACV’s industry-leading inspection tool, APEXTM, the latest generation of ACV’s listening tool, Audio Motor Profile®(AMP®). The device now boasts a multitude of sensors that record the vehicle’s engine sound and vibration and detect certain emission anomalies. Machine learning algorithms then analyze and compare the data to ACV’s vast vehicle intelligence data library to report on the condition of the vehicle, assisting dealers in making informed inventory management decisions.
Want a sneak peek? Take a look at their initial one-minute video pitch submission.
As first-round finalists, the duo will deliver an engaging two-minute Shark Tank-like pitch on the Main Stage for the chance to be named the Grand Prize Winner and receive a 20-minute time slot on the Live Stage later at the 2023 NADA Show.
