Kawasaki will engage participants with an interactive learning hub on the show floor, featuring a variety of offerings for all Dealer Expo retailers. Kawasaki's marketing team will be on-hand to showcase the newly launched Kawasaki consumer website, demonstrate new technologies and share best practices in digital marketing, including how to utilize social media tools to boost sales and engagement; extending their expertise beyond the Kawasaki dealer network.
"In today's Powersports Industry it is imperative that retailers adapt their marketing strategies to include the new social media and digital marketing techniques that the next generation of riders respond to," said Chris Brull, Kawasaki Marketing Communications Director. "We are looking forward to to bringing our expertise in the field to the Dealer Expo retailers."
Surrounded by Kawasaki's latest models and new products, attendees can "Revive" tired feet and check emails in a lounge area, or return calls and verify their next booth visit.
