IBIS 2007 Hits New High For Body Repair Industry

IBIS, the global body repair industry’s annual think tank, took itself out of Switzerland for the first time in six years to be staged at Cannes, France, just days after the annual Cannes film festival.
The bodies weren’t quite as spectacular, but the message was more significant, with a strong theme of the need for training, specialised equipment and adaptation to new technology or you are likely to be on the wrong side of the equation in the repair industry.

ASRW Brings Together NACE, CARS and more

Las Vegas — The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has announced the creation of Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW), which will make its debut in November 2008. The overall goal of ASRW is to bring together buyers and sellers of automotive products and services in one venue that includes both education and trade show activities. ASRW will grow to include activities for other organizations and industry segments, thereby creating a home for all that work in or cater to the automotive service and repair industry.
