ACV facts & figures
If you are looking to move from survive to thrive, then it’s important that your independent dealership be part of the NIADA yearly convention. This show provides opportunities to connect with independent auto dealers and other industry leaders over a few days where you get the chance to learn, grow, and network.

A Focus on ACV Capital
ACV was prominently featured at this year’s event, providing attendees with the ability to engage with and learn from ACV leadership. ACV Capital was a heavy focus at the show as individuals were encouraged to learn more about the ability to easily floor plan while wholesaling through ACV’s digital platform. Team members from ACV were on hand to explain the benefits, including how to spend less time managing your funds and more time growing your business, gain knowledge of fees upfront with no hidden title, audit, curtailment, or Fed-Ex fees, and how to bundle ACV Capital with other services including financing for transportation costs. The Finance Fair, in which ACV Capital had breakout sessions during, was well attended and brought excitement to those who stopped by.
In fact, this year’s NIADA was quite busy, as the industry continues to be hungry for gaining insights on how to correct a lopsided market. The networking events and speaking engagements provided tangible opportunities and learning moments for attendees. In particular, ACV was able to paint a picture for attendees to learn more about the full lifecycle of dealership operations.
