The event, titled the Evolution 2023 conference, will be held from September 28 through September 30 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida.

Present at the conference will be franchise partners from Abra, CARSTAR, and Fix Auto USA, as well as Driven Brands team members, vendors, and industry leaders from around the country.

The event will begin that Thursday with a keynote session from New York Times bestselling author of eight books, Jon Acuff. Afterward, an opening night event will be held where attendees will be able to meet with owners and partners from other brands.

General sessions will be held on Friday, followed by breakout sessions with insight into initiatives and topics specific to each brand. A vendor tradeshow and awards gala will be held later in the day as well.
