The Collision Industry Conference (CIC) announced on Friday, March 13 that it was cancelling its April 8-9 meeting in Jacksonville, Fla., and all the related events associated with it.
CIC stated that the difficult decision was made with the concerns related to public safety and logistical issues due to corporate travel restrictions. While collision repairers may be disappointed, CIC hopes that they can view this as the right decision given the circumstances.
Those who pre-registered will be able to transfer their registration to the July 22 CIC meeting in Philadelphia.
CIC recommends that registrants of the April meeting cancel or re-book airfare and hotel reservations as soon as they can. To contact the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront hotel, call (888) 421-1442
