Rich Evans to join SCRS at SEMA
Sept. 7, 2011 — Award-winning painter, fabricator and TV personality Rich Evans will speak with the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) during a public interview at this year’s SEMA Show, the SCRS recently announced.
Evans, a familiar face on TLC’s “Junkyard Wars,” “Chop Cut Rebuild,” and SPEED Channel’s “Car Warriors,” is also the owner of Huntington Beach Bodyworks and Rich Evans Designs. He’s well known for his custom painting and fabrication work, but he built his career on collision repair. He will discuss his collision repair experience, the landscape of the business and its technical side with the SCRS.
"Our goal this year has really been a strong combination of developing the best, most relevant, educational topics we could put together for the industry through our [Repairer Driven Education (RDE) program], while also embracing the best elements and opportunities the SEMA Show has to offer, and highlighting them in ways that are focused and distinct to the collision repair community," said SCRS Executive Director Aaron Schulenburg. "Adding dynamic and well known personalities like Rich Evans into the mix, who can provide exposure and insight into collision repair expertise that is as uncommon as it is fascinating, is one way to do this.”
The discussion is set for 10 a.m. Nov. 2 at the SCRS booth (North Hall, booth 10727). Attendees are invited to stop by. SEMA will take place Nov. 1–4 in Las Vegas.
The SCRS RDE series will feature more than 21 seminar offerings, many designed specifically for the 2011 SEMA Show. For more information, go the SCRS website at scrs.com.
