FenderBender Launches Management Conference
ST. PAUL, MINN., Dec. 15, 2014—Forward-thinking shop operators looking to network with like-minded peers and learn from some of the top minds in the collision repair industry will have an opportunity to do so at the first-ever FenderBender Management Conference, scheduled from May 18–20 in Philadelphia.
The conference will include educational sessions, deep-dive workshops, panel discussions, a keynote address, and networking opportunities all aimed at helping shop owners and managers make money, save money and work smarter. Conference sessions and speakers were pulled from the best FenderBender magazine content from the last several years.
“We combed through past issues looking for the topics that really resonated with readers, that will help shops take immediate steps to advance their businesses in the face of today’s challenges,” said FenderBender editor Jake Weyer. “From improving production efficiency to building stronger customer relationships to preparing your shop for aluminum repairs, the sessions cover a lot of ground, focusing on what is most important in the current collision repair environment.”
A total of 14 educational sessions will be organized into two tracks. The sessions, though, will only be part of the experience.
“While business education for collision repair owners and managers is the main focus of the conference, it also offers quality peer-to-peer networking opportunities at social events such as the orientation party and conference reception, at conference meals and event activities,” said event coordinator Mike Joseph. “It’s designed for industry professionals who want to achieve personal and business growth, and have a little fun at the same time.”
The show will have capped attendance, so to get exclusive offers and announcements, be sure to sign up at fenderbenderconference.com.
