I-CAR announced that it will extend the registration deadline to July 24 for the upcoming I-CAR 30th Annual Industry Conference at the Omni Shoreham hotel in Washington, D.C., July 2831.
The conference begins with a Collision Inter-Industry Tradeshow on July 28 and officially opens on July 29 with keynote speaker Dr. Martin Regalia, chief economist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. His address will be followed by a panel discussion offered by industry leaders focusing on strategies for improving business efficiencies and retaining customers in an economically challenging time, and the importance of training to help achieve those goals.
A day of hands-on training is scheduled for I-CAR instructors that will focus on providing the tools and building the skills necessary for successfully offering training in each local market. The conference will also include the recognition of volunteers and instructors who have contributed their time over the past 30 years.
I-CAR also plans to introduce two new training programs at the conference location on Aug. 1. The programs will be announced in early July.
The registration fee is $510 for general attendees for the four-day conference. There are also reduced fees for instructors and volunteers and for spouses and guests.
