Join us for NYSADA’s 94th Annual Convention and Business Meeting November 8th-12th

Relax your body, refresh your spirit and reinvigorate your business! This year, for our 94th annual convention, NYSADA will welcome you and your family to one of the Association’s all time favorite destinations: Marco Island. Throw in a JW Marriott property that has just undergone a $300 million transformation and you have all the ingredients for a meeting that promises to be amazing for dealers and their families.

NYSADA invites you to join us in this utopian setting for an informational program designed to stimulate your business creativity and furnish you with functional knowledge applicable to your dealership. After careful review, the Convention Committee has selected a range of dynamic and innovative industry leaders including NADA Chairman, Mark Scarpelli; Sr. V.P. of Honda, Jeff Conrad; Best-selling author C. Richard Weylman and back by popular demand, Andrew Diffenderfer to speak to our convention attendees. Of course, we have not neglected the restorative benefits of fun, relaxing diversions and the camaraderie inherent at a NYSADA convention.

The JW Marriott and Marco Island offer something for the entire family. For the beach-goer looking for quiet, pristine beaches and an escape from the party scene of other Gulf of Mexico beaches, Marco is an ideal destination. Dolphins and manatees abound at this sun-kissed island. Bright sunshine, warm, clear waters and endless adventures are abundant. Take a dip in the ocean or one of the hotel’s many pools. Sail, snorkel or soak in the sun or cast your cares away with some of the world’s finest fishing. You may tour the wild wetlands of the Florida Everglades, canoe among uninhabited islands, or, go shelling to fill buckets full of unique keepsakes from the beach.

Southwest Florida is known for its warm temperatures, balmy breezes and sunny skies. November temperatures are typically highs of 83 degrees and lows of 60 degrees with an average water temperature of 77 degrees.
