Used Car Week 2017 is in the books, and it was a smashing success for KAR Auction Services and ADESA. More than a dozen members of the KAR group of companies either held their own sessions or participated on expert panels. Our Auto Remarketing 40 Under 40 winners and Women in Remarketing honorees were recognized during special ceremonies. And ADESA also served as the social media sponsor for the conference.
