Fix Auto National Conference heads to New Orleans
June 22, 2012—Fix Auto USA on Thursday announced its 10th annual national conference will be held Oct. 7-9 at the W New Orleans hotel in New Orleans.
Anaheim Hills, Calif.-based Fix Auto said this year’s conference is based on the theme “The Power of Now,” which will be the focus of several programs and panel discussions. Collision industry leaders will share domestic and global perspectives on current trends and the state of the industry.
“The theme is all about empowering yourself in the present moment, whether it be personally or professionally, seizing the opportunities that are offered to you and realizing that there’s never been a better time to be a part of the collision industry and to align your shop with Fix Auto,” said Paul Gange, president and chief operating officer of Fix Auto. “We look forward to seeing everyone in New Orleans this fall.”
Fix Auto said the conference will be held in conjunction with the 2012 NACE Expo, which is scheduled for Oct. 10-13 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
“The whirlwind of industry activity surrounding NACE includes presentations, training opportunities, exhibitions and other events that are of great value to our members,” Gange said. “By scheduling the Fix Auto National Conference just prior to NACE, we can maximize professional opportunities for attendees without requiring they spend an extended time away from their businesses or book multiple plane tickets.”
More than 150 people are expected to attend the conference, which will include Fix Auto franchisees, members of Fix Auto’s Collision Repair Experts affiliate network and other strategic business partners.
