ASRW announces lineup for MSO Symposium
Aug. 30, 2012—Organizers of Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) 2012 on Thursday released the educational program, schedule and speakers for this year’s MSO Symposium.
The MSO Symposium—which is specifically designed for operators of multiple collision repair facilities—will include several speakers and panel discussions on topics including sustainable shop cultures, brand development, business relationship development, and leadership and growth strategies. The event also includes networking opportunities for MSO operators and access to the ASRW show floor.
“Our success with last year’s inaugural MSO Symposium generated tremendous enthusiasm and interest among MSOs in the U.S. and Canada. It has also proven to be a draw for our speakers who want to share their thoughts with this growing segment of the collision repair industry,” said Matthew Ohrnstein of Symphony Advisors, who facilitates and co-produces the MSO Symposium. “We are especially pleased to be able to tailor this year’s content to respond to specific feedback from last year’s attendees.”
The MSO Symposium is scheduled for Oct. 12 during ASRW 2012—which is set for Oct. 10-13 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. A full schedule, speaker lineup and registration information can be found online.
“The MSO Symposium was one of the most anticipated events of 2011, and this year’s event is on pace to exceed our expectations once again,” said Ron Pyle, president of the Automotive Service Association (ASA). “The overwhelming response and support by the sponsors of this event have truly shaped it, and we are grateful to each of the sponsoring companies who have played a critical role in this year’s symposium.”
