GE Capital, Commercial Distribution Finance (CDF) today announced its participation in this year’s North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA) annual trade show and convention, which will be held Sept. 6-8 in St. Louis, MO.
“CDF has been supporting the trailer industry for more than 25 years,” said David Wilson, commercial leader of CDF’s Diversified Products Group. “Today, we provide financing programs to nearly 80 manufacturers in the U.S. and Canada. Our long history in the industry, our dedicated experts and our world-class business intelligence tools demonstrate our commitment.”
NATDA show attendees are invited to visit GE Capital at booth #816 at the America’s Convention Center in downtown St. Louis.
NATDA president Andrew Ackerman noted that an estimated $9 million in orders were written at the 2011 show. With nearly double last year’s number of manufacturers participating this year and more than double the number of dealers expected to attend, NATDA is projecting sales during the show will top $18 million.
"We’ve successfully developed this annual event into a buying show,” Ackerman said. “With specials being offered by almost every exhibiting company, dealers have incredible buying options. Cash discounts, freight allowances and free floor plan programs have made St. Louis the place to be in 2012. And for those who aren’t ready to buy, it’s a great way to see next year’s models.”
This one-of-a-kind show caters to all segments of the trailer industry, including utility, living quarter, horse, cargo, race car, marine, dump, flatbed, recreational vehicle and toy hauler markets. Attendance is free for all trailer dealers as well as dealers in related industries. Dealers can register for the show by visiting natdatradeshow.com/.
