WRECKWEEK’S FIRST YEAR WILL FETE “THE 500”AND SHOWCASE CREATIVE RESTORATIONS

The 500 oldest body shops in the nation, being compiled right now by Body Shop Business, will be honored by the magazine in Fort Worth, Texas during WreckWeek (June 20-22), and on the cover of an issue later in the year. Body shops established any time prior to 2010 should apply at BodyShop500.com.

The show for body shop and auto repair shop owners and managers will also feature a pageant of beauties – restored vintage vehicles that will be displayed on WreckWeek’s show floor inside the Fort Worth Convention Center. Interested parties may enter their prized restorations at wreckweek.com.

Body Shop Business has partnered with American Towman/AT Expo Corp, known for its world class trade shows and the American Towman Exposition, AT Showplace–Las Vegas, and TowXpo/Dallas-Forth Worth (held adjacent to WreckWeek). AT Expo Corp. has partnered as well with DRIVE, the foremost consultant and educator in the collision and auto repair field.

WreckWeek caters to those shop owners looking to stay on top of their game. Its Academy, conducted by DRIVE consultants and educators, will address the industry’s most challenging issues, including how a body shop can operate profitably by not allowing insurance companies to control their rates and repair procedures. DRIVE has helped thousands of shop owners reach greater growth and profitability.

“WreckWeek’s educational program aligns with the magazine’s core mission,” said Dean Martin, Publisher of Body Shop Business. “The Exposition will give our readers another opportunity to progress their business.”

Body Shop owners attending the show will explore an exhibit floor featuring the latest in body-repair equipment and services, from frame straighteners to car and truck lifts to paint booths. Body Shops who also operate tow trucks wil be able to scout the equipment on display at TowXpo in the hall adjacent to WreckWeek.
