GERMANTOWN, Tenn. – The Automotive Distribution Network will be hosting its 14th Network National Convention at the Happiest Place on Earth.

The Network’s 2018 gathering will be held at the Swan and Dolphin Resort at Walt Disney World in Orlando, March 15–18, 2018.

“For many of the Network’s affiliates, this national event is an opportunity to have a family vacation while learning ways to improve their businesses and networking with other likeminded business owners and personnel,” says David Prater, president of the Network.

“With that mind, Walt Disney World is the perfect location for the 2018 Network National Convention, as this iconic theme park and resort truly offers something for everyone.”

The Walt Disney World Resort features three championship golf courses, 17 restaurants offering cuisine from every corner of the planet, complimentary shuttles to the four nearby Disney theme parks with the option of extra-hours access, and dazzling floor plans and meeting spaces.

The 2018 Network National Convention will host some of the industry’s most renowned seminar speakers, with topics geared toward everything suppliers and their service dealer customers need to grow their businesses.

The convention’s popular Manufacturer’s Exposition will also return, providing Network members and their customers an opportunity to have face time with the group’s vendor partners, who will be showcasing their latest products and services throughout 50,000 square feet of space. Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network is one of the largest, most diverse program groups in the industry.
