The event will be held at the Courtyard by Marriott-Grand Rapids Downtown, and will include complimentary dinner, drinks and presentations from 6:30–8:30 p.m.

“The collision repair business is changing quickly, particularly with the advent of aluminum repair. When you’re an independent body shop owner, it’s hard to take the time to step away from your business to look at longer-range changes and developments in the industry,” said Mark Algie, business development manager for 3M Automotive Aftermarket. “This collision industry program provides a great way to understand how the changing marketplace will impact your business, and plan now for those changes!”
