CAR DEALER Magazine’s list of the industry’s most influential dealers is returning for 2016 – and this year’s best of the best will be announced at CDX16 on May 24, 2016.
You could call it the Holy Grail of dealer tweeters (some probably won’t) and, now in its fourth year, the Top 140 Most Influential Dealers on Twitter survey is designed to shine a spotlight on the dealers that are at the top of their game on social media.
Last year, Georgina Parnell (@) from Twitter UK handed out the awards to our best-placed dealers and hosted a Q&A session with the delegates.
Twitter will be returning to CDX in 2016, with Lucy McHenry (@), head of agency sales at the social media giant, handing over the glitzy trophy to the most inspiring tweeter in the trade over the past 12 months.
We caught up with McHenry who told us: ‘The most successful brands have known for years, the importance of delivering the right message, to the right audience, at the right time.
‘Twitter’s formats and tools, combined with its live and open nature, makes Twitter the perfect platform for doing exactly this. Twitter is excited to be attending CDX16 this year, and we look forward to seeing you there.’
We’ve already started making initial investigations into which dealers should be in our Top 140 and we’ll be revealing the data at some point between now and May 24.
Remember, you need to be in it to win it. So, if you want to take home the Top 140 trophy, keep on tweeting and sign up to CDX16 today.
