May 21, 2014–NACE/CARS Expo & Conference organizers on Tuesday announced the schedule for the Collision Repair Executive Symposium (CRES), formerly known as the MSO Symposium. The event now caters to a broader group of collision repair executives, allowing it to be more inclusive.

The symposium is designed for multi-shop operators and single-shop owners looking for high-growth strategies, mergers and acquisitions, divesting, and operational excellence. It is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 1, the last day of the conference at the Cobo Convention Center in Detroit.

This year’s event includes key changes in content, including a focus on management, operations and participation from insurance company executives.

“Some businesses are preparing for expansion through growth or acquisition while others are preparing for merger or divestiture,” said Dan Risley, Automotive Service Association (ASA) president and executive director, and CRES co-producer. “This symposium will provide information essential in understanding market conditions and preparing for the future, regardless the size of the business.”

CRES Registration is $150 before June 14 at for shop owners.
