June 19, 2013—The LKQ Insurance Client Forum will be held in conjunction with the 2013 NACE trade show, organizers of Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) announced Wednesday.
“LKQ has been a loyal NACE supporter for many years, and we continue to be appreciative of their participation in the event,” said Dan Risley, interim executive director of the Automotive Service Association (ASA). “We are excited to add the LKQ Insurance Client Forum to the growing list of industry meetings scheduled to take place during ASRW.”
LKQ’s fourth annual Insurance Client Forum, which is scheduled for Oct. 16, is meant to provide U.S. and Canadian insurance representatives with a tactical and strategic overview of the company. LKQ said it uses the forum to solicit feedback and advice from its key clients.
Representatives from several major estimating companies are also expected to attend.
“LKQ is always listening to our customers and seeking advice on how we can better serve them, and this client-centric event was created to foster a greater level of communication in a small setting,” said Terry Fortner, vice president of industry relations and market development for LKQ. “From the clients who attend the Insurance Client Forum to the location of this event at NACE, all the details of this forum reflect our intentions to listen to our customers and create a valuable event for them.”
ASRW 2013 will take place Oct. 16-18 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Educational seminars will begin Oct. 16, and the show floor will be open Oct. 17-18.
