Formerly known as the MSO Symposium, the new event caters to a broader group of collision repair executives.
NACE has released the schedule for the Collision Repair Executive Symposium (CRES), formerly the MSO Symposium. The event will take place Friday, Aug. 1, at the Cobo Center in Detroit.
The MSO Symposium has been an extremely popular, sold-out event during NACE since its debut in 2011, drawing attendance from the largest multi-shop operators in the collision repair industry. This all-new CRES business event now caters to a broader group of collision repair executives, allowing it to be more inclusive of some of the best and largest operators in the marketplace. This year’s event includes key changes in content, including a focus on management, operations and participation from insurance company executives presenting leading information on industry trends.
“A significant amount of time, effort and planning has been invested in developing the fresh content for this year’s all-new format for CRES as we strive to deliver relevant, high-level content for this important and rapidly growing segment of the collision repair industry,” said Russell Thrall, Collision Week publisher, symposium moderator and co-producer.
Registration for CRES is $150 before June 14 ($250 after) and is available online here for qualified shop owners. This year’s CRES includes an Expo Pass, as well as a ticket to the Opening General Session and Welcome Party Thursday, July 31, allowing for multiple networking opportunities for shop owners and MSOs throughout the event.
