SCRS Reports 250 Percent Increase in Attendance for SEMA Show RDE Series

In its fourth year, Repairer Driven Education series at SEMA Show to once again provide collision repairers with classes pertinent to their industry.

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has announced it is once again offering the Repairer Driven Education (RDE) series at the SEMA Show Nov. 5-8, 2013 in Las Vegas. SCRS has held RDE since 2010, attracting more and more attendees each year.
 
As of July 1, SCRS reports an attendee registration increase of more than 250 percent compared to the previous year. Also, show management numbers through the end of June indicated an increase in
collision industry exhibitor counts, square footage occupied by
exhibiting collision industry companies, and both overall and
collision-focused attendee registration.
 
"We are extremely proud of the series we have developed this year, and still have some additional programming we are working on to even further amplify the experience this fall," said SCRS Chairman Ron Reichen. "Attendee reaction to our events is always the best indicator of whether or not we are delivering what the industry is looking for in our series. Based on the feedback we have received so far, and the extremely compelling numbers, we are confident that the varied content is going to provide very tangible value to all involved."
 
While the primary activities for the collision repair industry take place in the Collision Repair & Refinish section of the show in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, industry meetings, forums and newly expanded show floor space also extend into the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino (LVH). In addition, many collision industry companies take advantage of other space at the show, including Tools & Equipment (North Hall), Restyling & Car Care Accessories (North Hall), Racing & Performance (Central Hall), Hot Rod Alley (Central Hall) and the First Time & Featured Exhibitors (LVH).
 
"Since the early stages of our discussions, our partnership with SCRS has focused on providing opportunity to the industries we each represent," said Peter MacGillivray, VP, Events and Communications for SEMA. "The fact that the collision repair community has become such an integral part of so many areas of the show, and has demonstrated such annual growth, really emphasizes the benefits derived from industry involvement in the premier global automotive specialty destination in the world. We are proud to boast that SEMA Show attendees will be exposed to educational seminars, product demonstrations, special events and networking opportunities, and believe that our collaboration with SCRS has been a leading contribution to those opportunities."
