Automotive service providers, whether they are collision or auto repair shop owners, are concerned with one thing: how do you maximize your efforts into profits?
Like all small business owners, they are affected by supply chain delays, employment retention, inflation, rising costs of operations and the long work hours they put into their businesses.
These topics and more, are central to the establishment of WreckWeek, the Exposition and Conference for Collision and Auto Repair as the place to learn how to deal with these challenges. The two-day trade-only event of the latest products and services has created “the talk of the town” amongst these important service markets.
WreckWeek is the collaborative effort of three leading enterprises: American Towman Magazine, Body Shop Business Magazine, and DRIVE, the pre-eminent consulting and coaching firm.
Critical topics to be presented include breaking free from insurance companies’ intent on controlling rates and repair methods, managing parts supply chain issues, recruitment and retention of employees, establishing sales and profit benchmarks, important customer service practices and effective marketing programs on multiple digital platforms to increase one’s sales penetration.
According to David Saline, DRIVE vice president, improving these and other management skills are paramount to running a successful shop business.
DRIVE, in addition to producing the conference program for WreckWeek, will also be hosting its annual conference of DRIVE customers nationwide.
Body Shop Business magazine, the nation’s leading auto body shop magazine, is the Official Sponsor of WreckWeek.
Located side-by-side with TowXpo Dallas/Fort Worth, the prominent 26-year old towing industry show, WreckWeek, will take place June 21 and 22, 2024 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in one of the country’s fastest growing cities, Fort Worth, Texas.
“Our goal is to bring these elements of automotive service under one roof to not only showcase products and services for collision, auto repair and towing, but also open new opportunities for the owners of these businesses to reap what they sow,” says Henri “Doc” Calitri, president of A. T. Expo Corp., responsible for the exposition and conference management.
“Owners of these critical service businesses put in long work hours, endure all the trials and tribulations of running a commercial enterprise, and need to see how and where they need to improve their management and ultimately increase their profitability,” he says.
When you increase your management efficiency and your bottom line, you can ultimately make significant changes and improvements in one’s personal life for the better, Calitri adds.
“Isn’t the goal of every business owner, to provide for themselves and improve the quality of life for their families?” Calitri says. “WreckWeek can play a major role in accomplishing these goals.”
