Registration has opened for the 11th annual MSO Symposium which will be held on 31 October 2022, the Monday before SEMA / AAPEX, in Las Vegas.
Created by and for multi-shop owners, the event will begin at 10 am with a light breakfast, networking, and vendor displays. An information programme will follow, providing insight on the economy, the industry’s current situation, matters concerning ESG, DEI, and lessons observed in private equity and electric vehicle repair adaptation.
The event will also address national and global shifts of the industry’s economic trends, collaborative partnerships, and internal and external growth expectations. Discussion panels and presenters include industry and economy experts, and executives of MSOs, insurance companies, and OEMs.
The conference will conclude at 7 pm after an exclusive industry reception.
“The MSO Symposium is truly unique,” said Julie Massaro, Executive Director of the Automotive Service Association (ASA). “The calibre of content received, alongside the chance to network with executive peers, is a combination you simply don’t find elsewhere. The event’s agenda, timing, and content is directed by industry leaders who voluntarily participate on the programme’s advisory board.”
Roy Schnepper, owner of Butler’s Collision and MSO Symposium advisory board member, said the event is aimed at multi-shop owner businesses of all sizes. “This event is not just for large MSOs. If you’re a small to mid-size MSO or independent repair facility looking at the next step, the MSO Symposium will help you successfully prepare your business for the future. The collision repair industry is dealing with incredible technological advancements in today’s vehicles, and companies need to know how to position their business for growth in this changing environment.”
Julie Massaro, ASA Executive Director, said the symposium brings together multi-shop owners and operators, dealers, franchisees, and repair networks from across North America. “This exclusive event has evolved into the largest conference in the world, where only collision industry repairers, insurers, and OEMs can gather exclusively,” she added.
Attendance is limited and you must qualify to attend. Qualification standards are met by insurers, OEMs, multi-shop operators, and single location repair facilities with revenue exceeding US$3 million in annual sales.
