The HD Repair Forum announced it has released the agenda for its 2019 heavy-duty collision repair conference April 2-3 in Fort Worth, Texas.

“Last year, as a first-time event, we were very satisfied with the feedback we received on the program,” said Brian Nessen, co-founder and president of the HD Repair Forum. “Repair facility owners, fleet and body shop managers, insurance partners and other industry leaders were pleased with the information and opportunities that were uncovered. It is based on this feedback and the requests and direction given from our advisory board that this year’s conference follow a similar format.”

The 2019 agenda will assist repair facilities in the heavy-duty collision repair market improve their processes and profitability, bring further clarity to solutions available for parts sourcing and pricing, educate the industry on the newest vehicle technologies entering this market, while continuing conversations on other industry challenges, including access to OEM repair procedures.

Until recently, heavy-duty collision repairers did not have an event dedicated to their business needs and interests. The HD Repair Forum now provides industry leaders a place to gather, communicate, collaborate and network with peers, stakeholders and key influencers.

“We look forward to offering the heavy-duty collision repair industry the opportunity to come together and drive change that benefits all of the stakeholders, including their mutual customer,” said Nessen.
