Call for Speakers

The deadline to complete your submission is Friday, July 7th at 5 p.m. Eastern.

Used Car Week (UCW) is a five-day event that brings together all corners of the used-car and remarketing industry to discuss current trends, forecasting for the future and how to prepare for the road ahead. Our goal is to offer content that will help with solutions to pain-points and challenges facing the industry at this very moment and in the coming year.

Our participants want solutions, not a sales pitch!

We know it’s tempting to spread the good word about your exciting new product or service. But our attendees simply do not respond well to a “salesy” presentation. They want actionable items that they can take back to their workplace to implement. And if you can give them that, their opinion of you and your company will be a positive one. If you spend your time trying to sell them something, they’re probably going to wind up with a negative experience. Help them, teach them, bring them some new ideas, and they’ll come back to you for more. That’s just how it works.

New, never-before-seen presentations

Bring us something novel, rather than the presentation that you’ve shared at the past four conferences you’ve been to. We recognize that takes more time and effort on your part, but we can guarantee that the response will be much more positive, increasing the benefit that you and your company receive from participation at Used Car Week. Our reputation as a conference has been built on providing some of the freshest, most valuable content in the industry, and we rely on our speakers to continue to provide that edge.
