May 4, 2016—CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts announced Tuesday that it will hold its annual conference July 9-11 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans.
Themed “Power of One,” the conference will open with an awards presentation to recognize the top-performing franchisees. Sessions on strategic planning, management and technical education will follow, as well as panel discussions, vendor partner networking events, motivational speakers, and an insurance industry forum. Chip Foose will headline the event. Keynote speaker Mark Scharenbroich, motivational speaker and author of “Nice Bike,” will join Mike Anderson, founder of CollisionAdvice.com and FenderBender columnist, for several sessions.
“Over the past year, CARSTAR has expanded its presence as the most dynamic company in the collision industry. Our conference will reflect this with an event where store owners, business leaders, vendor partners and insurance companies come together to help build the collective industry for the future,” Michael Macaluso, president of CARSTAR North America, said. “This is the largest MSO network event of the year, with an incredible lineup of speakers, education events and networking opportunities exclusively for the CARSTAR store owners. This is just one of the many resources we provide store owners in the CARSTAR family, and a powerful tool for them to help them gain the edge, grow their business and improve their operations.”
