The Future of Retailing?
Headlines read as though electric vehicles are here and that internal combustion engines are a thing of the past. When you read announcements by car manufacturers stating they are going “all electric,” what does that mean and what is their timeline? In order to understand the reality of the electric vehicle evolution, it is important to understand the nuances of market turnover, consumer preferences and existing barriers to adoption. This panel will offer perspective on what fuel marketers and retailers should be thinking about and what your opportunities might be to serve your customers who might opt to purchase an electric vehicle.

Thursday, September 9
Praised by fans and critics alike for his knowledgeable perspective, refreshing humor and sometimes irreverent wit toward the game of golf, Gary McCord is well-known by most for enduring 23 years and 422 tournaments on the PGA Tour without nabbing a single victory. A man of good humor, he boasted a “NO WINS” license plate for years to poke fun at his own less-than-glamorous career as a professional golfer. Gary pursued other avenues of golf and found himself at home in the world of broadcasting with a 33-year career providing color commentary on golf for CBS.
Gary also established himself as a talented author. The fourth edition of his bestselling instructional manual, Golf for Dummies, was released in January 2011. And, Gary delighted fans with his autobiographical collection, Just a Range Ball in a Box of Titleists. Non-golfers might recognize Gary for his appearance in the Kevin Costner movie, Tin Cup, in which he played himself and served as a technical director.
