MSO Symposium Releases 2023 Conference Agenda

The speakers on the agenda for the event Oct. 30 in Las Vegas include successful MSO executives, Amazon and economy experts.

The MSO Symposium, an exclusive one-day conference created by and for multi-shop owners and operators and their industry partners, will be held in Las Vegas Oct. 30 right before SEMA/AAPEX Industry Week. This annual program provides insight on critical topics to the leaders and executives of the industry’s most influential collision repair operators in North America and beyond.

The program begins at 9 a.m. PDT with a welcome breakfast and networking hour, sponsored by Original One Parts. This sets the stage for the symposium and provides attendees the chance to catch up with colleagues from around the industry and discuss opportunities with the vendors supporting the industry’s largest collision operations.

In addition to an agenda featuring successful MSO executives, Amazon and economy experts, three additional networking opportunities are set aside during the event: a formal luncheon sponsored by PPG, a refreshment break sponsored by Axalta Coating Systems and an exclusive industry reception from 5:15-7 p.m. sponsored by Sherwin-Williams.
