DealerRefresh 2013 In Review – Best Of

From Wearable Technology, “What Does the Fox Say” to Twerking, 2013 kept us on our toes.

Just like we predicted, 2013 was an incredible year for the DealerRefresh community. As always we grew, learned and had some fun along the way.

For the first time in DealerRefresh history, we co-hosted a conference along with other industry greats. Dealer ThinkTank kicked off in Cincinnati in December and will continue to visit a city near you in the coming months. We’re in Dallas next month, so be sure to sign up for a day of automotive education and training.
