ASRW’s MSO Symposium Has Sold-Out Audience

The first Multi-Shop Operator (MSO) Symposium was held Thursday during Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) to a sold-out crowd of 150. The day-long event that took place at the Orange County Convention Center featured educational sessions specific to MSOs, a lunch presentation and an evening networking reception.

"The MSO Symposium was one of the most highly anticipated events at ASRW 2011, and it far surpassed all expectations we had for our first effort," said Ron Pyle, ASA president. "We received a tremendous response to this event, both from attendees and sponsors. We have a lot of people to thank for the success of the event, and we look forward to making the symposium bigger and better for 2012."

The MSO Symposium was sponsored by CCC Information Services Inc., DuPont Performance Coatings, Toyota Wholesale Parts, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, UniCure Spraybooths, The Romans Group, I-CAR, Summit Software and 1-800 Radiator. The MSO Symposium was produced by the Automotive Service Association (ASA), International Autobody Congress and Exposition (NACE) and Symphony Advisors.

ASRW plans to make this an annual event, holding the second MSO Symposium at ASRW 2012 Oct. 10-13 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La.
