The 15th annual event will also include business and technical speakers, networking opportunities and a vehicle gifting
Sanford, N.C.—CIECA announced that its 15th annual conference, CONNEX 2023, will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton, in Bloomington, Ill., Sept. 12-13. The event will include a full lineup of business and technical speakers, networking opportunities and a vehicle gifting as part of the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides program. One of the highlights of the event will be an exclusive factory tour of Rivian.
The theme of the conference this year is “Connected Car, Connected Industry.” It was chosen to reflect the increasing levels of connectedness and integration between all aspects of vehicle design, manufacturing and repair. All industry stakeholders, including CIECA members and non-members, are invited to attend.
During the two-day conference, leaders from across the collision industry will discuss where technology and business are headed and what the industry is doing to prepare.
“With ADAS and autonomous features growing with every model year and new electric vehicle (EV) models expected from nearly every major manufacturer, technology is at the forefront of automobile design and the driving experience,” said Paul Barry, CIECA’s executive director. “All of this technology translates into data and new repair methods, supply chains and repair procedures.”
“Come join us at the CIECA CONNEX conference to network with industry leaders, engage in presentations and discussions regarding emerging technologies, and see how CIECA is working with our member companies,” said CIECA Chairman Greg Best, senior business analyst for California Casualty. “Our focus this year is on the connected car and how our industries connect. I encourage all industry segments to get involved and see how you can make a difference.”
