The HD Repair Forum announced the release of its educational program and agenda for this year’s installment of the only event dedicated to the heavy-duty collision repair market.
The two-day event is filled with a fast-paced agenda, with speakers from industry-leading companies and individuals driving change in the industry. Some of the topics include:
- Frame, cab and trailer repair
- Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), scanning and diagnostics
- Business strategy and employee relations
- Steering, braking and other key repair knowledge
The speakers and content for this program are a derivative of the work, input and direction of the HD Repair Forum Advisory Board.
“What makes the HD Repair Forum unique is that we have direct input on the content, speakers and direction of the conference,” said James Svasaand of Penske Truck Leasing and member of the HD Repair Forum Advisory Board. “As a result, it’s an event created for the people, but more importantly by the people, in the industry.”
The HD Repair Forum continues its goal to expand and include other industry stakeholder groups. For the first time, a bus manufacturer (Prevost) will be presenting at the conference. HD Repair Forum
“We repair cars, trucks, RVs and buses,” said Mark Polzin of Budget Truck & Auto. “I’m thankful Prevost will be at the event. Their participation will shed light on some areas the industry can clearly benefit from, as it relates to the availability of parts information and repairability.”
