2019 NVLA Annual Conference Recap
The 2019 Annual Conference of the National Vehicle Leasing Association (NVLA) took place March 27–29 at One Ocean Resort & Spa in Atlantic Beach, Florida.  Coming off of last year’s 50th anniversary honoring its past, this year’s conference theme was "Drive the Future," an acknowledgement that times are changing and independent lessors need to change with them.

Clearly, the industry has turned a corner based on the conference’s robust attendance, number of hotel rooms booked, and session participation.

"I was pleased with the turn out this year," said Ken Sopp the conference chair and president of Credit Union Leasing of America. "Our members are looking to keep current and the conference is one way they benchmark their businesses, network with peers, and see what’s new in the industry," he added.

March 2019 Kontos Kommentary

Average wholesale prices and retail used vehicle sales were strong in March, typifying the usual spring/tax season market uptick.  In addition, our analysis increasingly indicates that prices for car segments are beginning to hold up better, while crossover and SUV truck segments may be starting to have a tougher go.  In recent years, the opposite has been true.  As mentioned in previous commentaries, this is to be expected as more crossovers and SUVs start coming home to roost from strong new vehicle sales over the last few years.
