July 15, 2016—Organizers of the 2016 NACE/CARS Expo & Conference announced the final program for the show’s MSO Symposium. Mike LeVasseur, director of corporate development for ABRA Auto Body & Glass, will be master of ceremony for the Symposium. 

“This year's program was developed with a combination of input from the industry, guidance from an incredible group of leaders on the advisory board, and past history of the event," said LeVasseur. "Those who attended in the past will be impressed with the new program, while those attending for the first time will have a lot to take in."

This year’s Symposium will add a new segment: the insurer panel. It will cover topics including DRP strategy, evolution of self-managed programs, short- and long-term plans for certification, how insurers envision working with MSOs, and how telematics are changing the industry. 

"Understanding the insurance segment of the repair market is critical to business success," said Marcy Tieger, principal at Symphony Advisors and insurer panel moderator. "This panel, along with the Q&A opportunities, will provide helpful insight for repair leaders and owners." 

The Symposium will also include a MSO Panel and a OE Panel. 

The MSO Symposium will take place on Aug. 11, with doors opening at 12 p.m. Executives representing MSOs, multi-location and single location collision repair executives are invited to attend the closed meeting.
