We’ve got an exceptional agenda planned, and we’re thrilled to announce the latest session at Navigate:
We hope you have your calendars marked for Navigate, CarGurus’ second annual automotive conference, on October 26th & 27th. This year, the event has been reimagined: it will be held virtually and for free!
We’ve got an outstanding agenda planned—there’s sure to be something for everyone, from dealership owners and GMs to sales staff and marketing managers. With so much to experience at Navigate, we’ve highlighted some of the sessions you won’t want to miss below.
Dealers have always been known for their charitable giving, partnering with food pantries, sponsoring local baseball teams, and most recently supporting hospital staff and first responders. Last month, we launched our Driving Difference contest as a way to celebrate and reward those helping out in their communities. We asked dealers to share on social media what they’ve been doing to spread positivity and use #DrivingDifference. We received entries from dealers across the country and, after weeks of anticipation, we are thrilled to announce our winners!
The winners of the $1,000 prize were selected by a panel of judges based on factors like the impact of their work and creativity. Check out the winning dealers and their entries below:
CarGurus is excited to announce the rename and launch of Area Boost (previously ‘Delivery Indicator’) to our dealer partners. Area Boost is our newest offering that helps dealers expand their reach by showing their deliverable listings to shoppers outside their local market.
By making it easy for low-funnel shoppers to find the exact cars they want, dealers with Area Boost are able to compete in low-supply markets that they weren’t previously reaching. Especially in today’s unique selling environment when most car shoppers would prefer to use contactless services during the purchase process, this product provides a simple way for dealers to increase their exposure and convert a larger audience of shoppers. Participating Area Boost dealers see on average 35% more vehicle detail page views from shoppers in their target market.
This October, hundreds of dealers, partners, and industry experts from around the globe will join us virtually for CarGurus’ second annual Navigate conference. The two-day, online event will be packed with a variety of valuable presentations and workshops, including a captivating keynote session from Peter Sheahan, Founder and CEO of Karrikins Group.
Peter and his team at Karrikins Group have worked with some of the world’s most recognizable brands, including Apple, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, Hyundai, IBM, Pfizer, Wells Fargo, and Cardinal Health, helping them accelerate growth and transformation within their business. He’s established himself across the world for his innovative business thinking and thought leadership.
