Southeast Collision Conference Announces 2024 Date and Location

Southeast Collision Conference Announces 2024 Date, Location

The 3rd annual Southeast Collision Conference will be held May 16-18, 2024 at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex in Greensboro, N.C.

The Carolinas Collision Association (CCA) and the Washington Metropolitan Auto Body Association (WMABA) have announced that the 3rd annual Southeast Collision Conference (SCC) will be held May 16-18, 2024 at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex in Greensboro, N.C.

SCC will continue to be a premier trade show and education opportunity, and will feature elevated experiences for both attendees and vendors alike. As with last year, there will be national-level contributors taking part in the events. The conference is intended to move annually between the two regions to serve as many shops as possible, year over year.

“The combination of our associations was an exponential expansion for the Southeast Collision Conference,” said Kyle Bradshaw, president of the CCA and director of fixed operations for K&M Collision. “We will continue to work hard to bring our region the best education and vendor opportunities possible. Being a part of the team leading this event, I’ve seen just how much more we can do for 2024.”

“WMABA is so proud to be part of this great event,” said Steve Krieps, president of the WMABA, owner of Collision Safety Consultants of West Virginia and shop manager with Greg Cline Automotive. “The 2023 show went way beyond our expectations, and I know that we will do the same this coming year. We want to see the needle move for every individual who participates in the education and trade show; we want to see lives and minds changed for the better.”

With a focus not only on owners but managers and technicians as well, the 2024 conference will again be pulling from the national connections shared by both associations. Their participation in national events has built relationships with the prominent leaders in the collision industry, and they are bringing these connections to the show through the vendors in attendance as well as national level industry speakers and networking opportunities.

“The entire point of the conference is to get shops together, help them to get great education and encourage community growth with their peers,” said Josh Kent, executive director of the CCA. “We work really hard to give them the very best experience. I love seeing the shops get connected while they also get pumped up with great content. It’s why I love what I do!”

Added WMABA Executive Director Jordan Hendler, “I couldn’t agree with Josh more about seeing industry professionals get their lightbulb turned on. We had such a great outcome for the first time working together, it was such a no-brainer to collaborate together again for the 2024 show. It’s going to be the not-to-be-missed event this side of the country!”
