PBEPRO partners with FenderBender Live for trade show coverage
Oct. 8, 2012—PBEPRO, a provider of collision repair product information and training operated by CollisionSync, has partnered with FenderBender Live to stream online coverage of the 2012 NACE Expo in New Orleans and 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Through the partnership, more than 5,000 automotive refinish distributors in the U.S. and Canada will have free access to news, interviews and product-related information from the event show floors. FenderBender magazine’s event coverage, which is sponsored by PPG, combined with PBEPRO’s product-focused coverage, will all allow distributors to benefit from the industry shows even if they’re not able to attend.
“We’re excited about this evolution of PBEPRO as we focus more on product education through videos,” said Christian Hassold, president and CEO of CollisionSync. “For years, we’ve been the leading provider of product data. This new partnership adds another level of valuable educational information for distributors.”
Video coverage for the 2012 NACE Expo will be produced Oct. 10-13, and will be featured on PBEPRO for the duration of the event at pbepro.com. All videos will remain available after the show through CollisionSync, collisionsync.com, and FenderBender magazine’s YouTube channel, youtube.com/fenderbendermag.
PBEPRO has also selected FenderBender magazine to be its exclusive news source for all participating Web properties operated by the company, including Carquest, National Coatings & Supplies, and O’Reilly Auto Parts.
“FenderBenderLive.com brings the best collision-related content from NACE and SEMA straight to the industry during each day of the shows. We’re thrilled to partner with PBEPRO and provide refinish distributers an inside look at the collision industry’s biggest events,” said Chris Messer, publisher of FenderBender magazine.
