2020 CAN Connect - The Event to Get Business Done      


CAN Connect, featuring the NEW CAN Business Expo is everything you need all in one place: Sales opportunities, partner networking, and the latest in products, services, trends, and technologies. CAN Connect is an exclusive networking opportunity to meet in a private business environment to present, discuss, and negotiate sales and marketing policies and programs. This event is unlike any other sales or trade show event. Each manufacturer hosts a private meeting room over the four-day event to network with today’s leading resellers, retailers, sales reps, service providers, and media. Primary meeting schedules are published six weeks in advance to allow preparation time for each 30-minute meeting.

The best thing about CAN Connect is....

On behalf of the Board of Directors and CAN’s staff we recognize circumstances surrounding COVID-19 are changing rapidly and there are many unknowns for all of us. It is too soon to know how long these challenges will continue or what the long-term impact will be. We remain committed to supporting our members through this challenging time.  
 
While many members and event organizers have made the decision to cancel or postpone their events, we are forging ahead with our planning for 2020 CAN Connect. Current information suggests restrictions will be lifted and activities will resume this summer. Our hope is the CAN Connect event will be the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your valuable partners in September. This event may be a vital and timely resource for all CAN members as recovery from this uncharted challenge begins.  
 
If you plan to attend 2020 CAN Connect, we ask that you register now to help with on-going planning efforts. If you have concerns about making this commitment, please know that CAN has always allowed for delayed billing, and any payments made will be fully refundable if the situation changes. Currently our website states any cancellations are fully refundable through August 12; however, the Board will be reviewing this date as necessary.  
 
CAN’s offices are fully operational from multiple remote locations during normal business hours. If you’d like assistance registering your organization’s delegates, please contact us: connect@customautomotivenetwork.com | 760.346.5647.
 
As the Board of Directors continues to monitor the situation, we remain committed to delivering a valuable event and promise to communicate any changes that might be necessary. Our industry has persevered through tremendous trials in the past and we will conquer todays challenges with innovation, passion, work ethic and hope.
