Sept. 16, 2011—Organizers of the 2011 Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) on Thursday released a full schedule of events for the Multiple Shop Operator (MSO) Symposium, the newest ASRW event.
The MSO Symposium, which will be held Oct. 6, is an all-day program that consists of education and networking specific to MSOs. The symposium will start with a networking breakfast, followed by a full day of panelists, keynote speakers, facilitated discussions, a CEO roundtable, Q&A sessions and a concluding networking reception, according to event organizers.
“Attendees are going to get some unique content directed at multiple shop operators who are intending to continue their growth,” said Ron Pyle, president of the Automotive Service Association (ASA). “There will be some financial perspective, acquisition perspectives, operational and insurance relationship-specific content, and content on how to acquire and develop additional locations if you’re an expanding MSO. It won’t be just one static format, but a variety of dynamic presentations facilitated by some of the leaders who are well-known within the industry.”
To view a complete schedule of events, visit the the NACE Expo website.
Sponsors of the MSO Symposium include: CCC Information Services, Toyota Wholesale Parts, DuPont Performance Coatings, The Romans Group, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and UniCure Spray booths. Matthew Ohrnstein, managing director of Symphony Advisors, will host the MSO Symposium.
Registration for the MSO Symposium is complimentary to qualified MSOs, but is limited to the first 100 registrants, according to ASRW organizers. To register, email Shelby Hausler, marketing manager for Hanley Wood Exhibitions, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
