The industry’s economic trends, collaborative partnerships and internal and external growth expectations will be addressed
North Richland Hills, Texas—The Automotive Service Association (ASA) and the MSO Symposium advisory board have announced that the 11th annual MSO Symposium will be held on October 31, the Monday before SEMA/AAPEX, in Las Vegas.
Created by and for multi-shop owners, the event will begin at 10 a.m. PDT with a light breakfast, networking, and vendor displays. A program will provide information and insight on the economy, the industry’s current state of affairs, matters concerning ESG, DEI, and the lessons observed in private equity and electric vehicle repair adaptation. The conference will conclude at 7 p.m., after an exclusive industry reception.
“The MSO Symposium is truly unique. The caliber of content received, alongside the chance to network with executive peers, is a combination you don’t find elsewhere,” said Julie Massaro, executive director of ASA. “The event’s agenda, timing, and content are directed by industry leaders who voluntarily participate on the program’s advisory board.”
This year, conversations on national and global shifts in the industry’s economic trends, collaborative partnerships, and internal and external growth expectations will be addressed. Panel participants and presenters will be industry and economy experts and executives of MSOs, insurance companies and OEMs.
“This event is not just for large MSOs. If you’re a small to mid-size MSO or independent repair facility looking at the next step, the MSO Symposium will help you successfully prepare your business for the future,” said Roy Schnepper, owner of Butler’s Collision and MSO Symposium advisory board member. The collision repair industry is dealing with incredible technological advancements in today’s vehicles, and companies need to know how to position their business for growth in this changing environment.”
For those interested in registering for the 2022 event, be advised that attendance is limited, and you must qualify. Qualification standards are met by insurers, OEMs, multi-shop operators and single-location repair facilities with annual sales revenue exceeding $3 million.
Registration with the early bird rate is available for a limited time. To begin the registration process, go to the MSO
“The MSO Symposium continues to bring together the multi-shop owners and operators, dealers, franchisees, and repair networks from all across North America. This exclusive event has evolved into the largest conference in the world, where only collision industry repairers, insurers, and OEMs can gather exclusively,” said Massaro.
