Marlton, N.J. — We’re just weeks away from the industry event of the year: The CD/NLA Show in Boston. Held October 13-16 at the Westin Boston Waterfront, the event promises four solid days of professional development, networking, and unsurpassed buying opportunities for all of your business needs. While our room block at the Westin is now sold out, we still have a select number of rooms available at the neighboring Aloft for the incredible rate of $227 a night. Act now—once these rooms are gone, you won’t find a better rate in the area.
We’re honored by the acclaim the CD Show receives from the industry each year for our world-class education and networking opportunities, but frankly nothing makes us prouder than the participation and big-heartedness on display during our annual Charity Auction & Dinner. It’s truly a special evening for us, because, thanks to you and your generosity, we’ve been able to raise more than a half-million dollars for charity over the past six years. All attendees are invited, so set a reminder for Tuesday, October 15 at 8:30 pm, because this year’s event will be one you won’t forget.
In 2019, it’s all about the kids, as CD and charity dinner co-sponsors Aadvanced Limousine and Chosen Payments are thrilled to have partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities as our spotlight cause. For those unfamiliar with the non-profit, the Ronald McDonald House provides low- or no-cost housing for traveling families while seeking medical treatment for their seriously ill or injured child. This incredible night includes a buffet dinner (at no additional cost to attend) and a live auction with an array of items from sports memorabilia to one-of-a-kind trips. Most importantly, it’s a chance for the industry to step up and support a great organization that helps countless kids and their families each year.
This year, we’ve made some changes to our charity auction to make it even easier for attendees to bid and pay for auction items. In conjunction with charity auction technology easily accessible through our show app (once again sponsored by North Point Global Transportation), you’ll be able to bid, track, and pay for your winning auction items in real-time. What’s more, if you’re somehow unable to attend the dinner, you’ll be able to bid and donate remotely. We’ve smoothed out the process to make it easier for you to open your heart—and wallet—for the Ronald McDonald House. Special thanks to our charity technology co-sponsors Commonwealth Worldwide and Windy City Limousine & Bus.
However, our most impactful event of the show got better, as this year, we're introducing a new tradition to the show—the Chauffeur Driven Hall of Fame. The amazing unsung heroes among us will be recognized for the selfless work they’ve done throughout the years to better our industry. For our inaugural event, we’re thrilled to be able to honor a group of true luxury ground transportation trailblazers, including Sam Amato of Gateway Global, Barbara Chirico of GEM Limousine, Ed Grech of Grech Motors, George Jacobs of Windy City Limousine & Bus, Dawson Rutter of Commonwealth Worldwide, and David Seelinger of EmpireCLS Worldwide. Not only will we be celebrating the professional accomplishments of these leaders but also the influence they’ve had on the industry-at-large. It’s sure to be an unforgettable night.
