Volunteer and professional leaders achieve record attendance at 2015 WAS

Nothing of the magnitude of The Washington Auto Show just happens. Indeed, the 2015 WAS took years for organizers to plan, which planning in turn was within the context of a long term direction that has been many more years in the making.

The WANADA dealer Auto Show Committee that led the 2015 WAS recognized its principal task as overseeing an expansion mode for the Auto Show that resulted here and now in record attendance. The long term direction, of course, is the status Washington has earned on the global industry auto show circuit as the Public Policy Show that in turn underlies growing consumer support as the automakers continue to value their participation while they embellish their vehicle exhibits. These industry factors for Washingtonês success are enhanced by the Auto Showês position as the largest event in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, no less than the most popular Washington event of its kind for participants and attendees.

As producers of the WAS, the Washington Area New Auto Dealers Association greatly appreciates the leadership and hard work of its 2015 Auto Show Committee chaired by Kevin Reilly, Alexandria Hyundai; Geoff Pohanka, vice chairman, Pohanka Automotive; George Doetsch, Apple Ford/Lincoln; Daniel Jobe, Capitol Cadillac; Charlie Stringfellow, Brown Automotive and Mark Zetlin, Mercedes of Arlington. Ex officio to the Committee for the 2015 WAS were Dick Patterson, WANADA chairman, RRR Automotive; and Danny Korengold, immediate past chairman of WANADA, Ourisman of Va.
