LEARN ABOUT THE ROCKSTAR
BORN FROM A DESIRE FOR CHANGE
Creating A Revolution
Automotive Industry conferences can be a great place to learn and grow but Chris Speer and Mat Koenig felt it could be done better, so they decided to find out. In March of 2016 in the city of Kalamazoo, Michigan the first ever Rockstar Auto Conference with more than 70 Automotive Industry Professionals was held at the Alamo Drafthouse.
Building a conference isn’t easy, especially one that will change lives. That’t why we called our friend, the one and only Grant Cardone, was the Rockstar Auto Conference keynote speaker and as always, his information was not only exciting, it was life changing. Grant celebrated the inaugural Rockstar Auto Conference with us on his birthday. He also brought his lovely wife Elena and their daughters Scarlett and Sabrina to the event.
Closing out the event was Gary Vaynerchuk, online marketing and branding expert. Gary recorded a special #AskGaryVee Show just for the Rockstar Auto Conference. With an entire cast of other great speakers throughout the day, we knew immediately that this was going to be bigger than one conference, the Rockstar Events were going to become a movement.

A Better Way To Do Automotive
Rockstar Auto Conference was born from the belief that there is a better way for people to do business in the automotive industry.
Who we are:
- We are a network of professionals who are passionate about serving car dealers and their clients with a better experience
- Vendor partners that want to see positive, lasting change in the industry
- Dealers who are tired of the B.S. and searching for a positive environment for learning
- The most exciting speakers in leadership, sales and marketing
What we believe:
- Every dealer deserves the best performance possible from their vendors
- Every attendee deserves to leave our events better than when they arrived
- Every person deserves to be treated with dignity, respect and love
How we are different:
- Our speakers are heavily vetted so that our attendees get the best information
- Every session is 100% unique to the Rockstar Auto Conference so you won’t find this information anywhere else
- We are building an educational environment that happens multiple times per year with the most relevant information so you won’t have to elsewhere
- We DO NOT SELL STAGE TIME TO VENDORS so you’re guaranteed that each session will be educational, informative and entertaining without the sales pitch
Our sponsors actually care:
Our sponsors pay for just about everything becuase they actually want to see industry change. You’ll notice at the Rockstar Auto Conference we don’t have 500 sponsors packed into a giant convention center clawing and scratching at you for your money. That’s because we don’t want sponsors who are selling snake oil to dealers, or sponsors that are pointing dealership in a direction that’s damaging their progress.
We recognize that our events can’t happen without the generous investments from our sponsor partners, and our sponsors know that you’re their current and future customers so they want you to have an amazing experience. Because we’re different, we do sponsorships different and that means we have specific events for you to meet and connect with our sponsor partners during the conference that aren’t high pressure situations.
