National Independent Automobile Dealers Association
Serving Quality Independent Automobile Dealers Since 1946

The BHPH World Convention is now a part of the NIADA Convention and Expo!!

NIADA's theme for 2016 is "SUCCESS BY REINVENTION" and with that, we've done a little reinventing of our own:

In December, 2015, NIADA acquired the assets of Leedom & Associates LLC, including the annual BHPH World Convention which was originally scheduled in Orlando, FL in April, 2016.

That convention footprint is now included in with the NIADA Convention and Expo, which this year will be held June 13-16 at the newly renovated Mirage in Las Vegas.

Dealers and vendors who have been planning to attend the BHPH World Convention can expect the same high level of Buy Here-Pay Here training and quality education on the subprime market at the NIADA Convention and Expo – and then some.

Please visit for more information and to plan your attendance at this year’s NIADA convention in Las Vegas.

More about the Acquisition
The assets purchased in the acquisition are well known to our independent dealers for the extensive offerings in the Buy Here-Pay Here space, including Dealer 20 Groups, Educational workshops, seminars, and boot camps, dealership consulting, the BHPH World convention and the BHPH-oriented magazine.

To help transition these assets into the NIADA Training Services and to grow and expand them, NIADA has hired Chuck Bonanno as the National Director of 20 Groups and Seminars. Chuck is very well versed regarding this operation as anyone could be. He was the first employee hired by Leedom and spent 13 years as a 20 Group moderator in the BHPH and automotive finance space.

NIADA is excited to build on an award-winning 20 Group platform, and we’re excited about the opportunity to add an array of other training and educational services to meet the needs of independent auto dealers.

This is the beginning of the next phase of NIADA’s reinvention. We’ve made changes we believe are necessary to help you, the independent dealer, thrive in our ever-changing industry.

Now it’s your turn. Are you ready to reinvent your dealership?
