Collision industry conference and networking provider International Bodyshop Industry Symposium (IBIS) has named Mario Dimovski from Australia’s Tradiebot Industries as one of its Leading Lights.
The IBIS Leading Lights programme features “thought leaders” who face issues, present solutions and galvanise action around a topic or set of topics relevant to all sectors of the industry.
IBIS says Dimovski is being recognised in the Leading Lights programme for his influence and contributions to digital transformation, along with promoting augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies in training, information delivery and digital productivity management.
According to IBIS, Dimovski has appeared as a regular speaker at the company’s conferences due to the relevance of his expertise in immersive technologies [AR and VR] and the roles they play in the technical world of collision repair. IBIS adds that the technologies are particularly timely in ensuring the safety of the world’s drivers during current times of uncertainty caused by the global pandemic.
“This new, ever-changing normal will require an agility and flexibility that VR and AR technologies are uniquely equipped to address,” said Dimovski.
“I’m delighted to have recognised Mario as one of IBIS’s Leading Lights thought leaders,” said Jason Moseley, CEO of IBIS. “The interview I recorded with him which is now available at ibisworldwide.com is an inspirational look at how Mario is revolutionising training and development in our industry. It’s also great news that Mario will be part of our panel of experts appearing on IBISTV Global Summit on 19 November.”
IBIS says that Dimovski’s pioneering use of advancing technologies encourages young adults to explore and venture into a career within a trade-based industry, while providing the current workforce with the latest digital tools that allow for safer and higher quality repairs on today’s complex computerised vehicles. As part of his work at Tradiebot Industries in Australia and globally, Dimovski continues to work with government, educators and industry to develop the next generation of technicians and help collision groups during their digital transformation journey.
