Welcome Event

Sanibel Harbour Princess Sunset Cruise
Sponsored by: U Pull & Pay/Trademark Metals
Thursday, July 19, 6:00 pm

We’ll take advantage this year of our proximity to the Gulf waters and the cruise excursion available from our host hotel. Join your fellow members for food, drinks, and good times on the water as we sail into the sunset on the Sanibel Harbour Princess, which offers open deck seating as well as comfortable accommodations inside. We expect to see dolphins and will observe the scenic views of the local islands as we sail. Seating is limited. Be sure to get your ticket as soon as possible. ($25 per person)

Boarding dockside behind Charlie’s Cabana Bar begins at 5:30 pm, and ship leaves promptly at 6:00.

Bring Your Employees Saturday at Special One-Day Rate of $190 Per Person!

We’ve designed Saturday’s schedule to provide in-depth training for your sales people and dismantlers. Starting at 8:00 am,Paul Secker of SAS Forks will do his popular forklift training and certification. Even owners will learn something new. DJ Harrington follows with his patented humor and sales insights, then a sales panel about finding hidden sources of income will feature speakers from CarEggs, Hollander, and Car-Part. Your employees are then free to hit the last hours of the trade show from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM, where they can get brunch and visit with vendors.

After the trade show, have your employees sit in with you on sessions concerning environmental safety and liquids storage, smart safety practices, closing the sale with Rian Garner, and an Ask the Experts panel.

For all this, register your employees at the one-day convention rate of only $190 per person. If you want your people to attend the banquet, you can buy a separate ticket. Take advantage of this great offer to bring your employees in for the day for some motivation, fun, and targeted learning that will improve their performance.

“I brought my entire staff to the 2016 FADRA convention and I saw the benefits immediately! Every one of my employees attended the Saturday sessions: Forklift Training, Dismantling Processes and Safety, and Sales School.

“Not only was I able to quickly and easily renew valuable safety certifications, but all of my employees left the seminars with a renewed focus and determination. Productivity and efficiency has improved dramatically.

“What’s more, the interactions with other recycling professionals has inspired them to work towards new individual goals. If you think you can’t afford to attend the convention, think again. You can’t afford not to. What a great experience!”

We will have more than 150 decision makers from the Florida auto recycling industry, and we expect to have several more Southeastern yards come down as well. This year’s program also has seminars to attract sales managers and dismantlers from member yards. Starting with the opening night cruise on the Gulf we’ll have several opportunities for you to gather with your customers in a casual environment as well as in the action-packed trade show.

Please Note: The exhibit hall will be limited to 36 booths this year and they will sell out quickly. Space will not be assigned until the exhibit contract and payment in full has been received. Sponsorships and exhibit spaces don’t last very long and we want to make sure that your company is represented!
