Farm Equipment's Dealership Minds Summit in Kansas City to feature innovative roundtable sessions for best 'dealer-to-dealer' networking.

The opening session at the first-ever Dealership Minds Summit in Kansas City on January 30 presents a unique format designed to allow dealers of all brands and geographic locations to learn how their peers are addressing common challenges.
