2024 POP Meetings Schedule
(subject to change)

RVDA’s Industry Relations Committee has approved a name change for the dealer-manufacturer meetings held at the RV Dealers Convention/Expo to Partners of Progress (POPs).

“The committee felt that the POPs name better reflects the nature of the relationship between manufacturing companies and the dealers who sell their products," said RVDA Industry Relations Committee Chair Debbie Brunoforte of Little Dealer, Little Prices (a Campers Inn RV Company). The POPs meetings were formerly known as Partners In Progress (PIPs).

Partners of Progress Committee meetings provide dealers with a forum to discuss brand-specific issues with top management from participating manufacturers. Only dealers who carry the specific brand may attend these meetings. Dealer volunteers moderate the meetings which are held in-person at the annual RVDA Convention/Expo in Las Vegas.  The 2024 convention is scheduled for November 11-15 at Paris Las Vegas. 

Purpose of RVDA Partners Of Progress Meetings:

1)      To create a forum for strengthening the business relationship between the dealers carrying a specific manufacturer’s brands and that manufacturer.
