It will be hard to miss KAR Auction Services and ADESA at Used Car Week 2017. In addition to participating on more than a dozen expert panels, KAR and ADESA are again serving as the event’s social media sponsor. If you plan on tweeting or posting on Instagram during the conference, don’t forget to use the hashtag #UsedCarWeek. Your post just might appear on the giant social media video wall.

We’re also proud to recognize both our Auto Remarketing 40 Under 40 winners and 2017 Women in Remarketing honorees at the event. Together, these individuals represent some of the best and brightest talent in the remarketing industry. I’m gratified to call them colleagues and friends.
