All industry stakeholders involved in the collision repair and claims handling of heavy-duty, medium-duty, emergency and recreational vehicles will want to make plans to attend next month’s HD Repair Forum. This two-day event features a general session, vendor fair, educational conference and networking with leaders in the industry. HD Repair Forum event organizers have released the agenda’s details last week after months of preparation with the advisory board, which comprises s16 of the industry’s best collision repair operators located throughout the United States.
The spring event taking place April 5-6 in Fort Worth, Texas, will focus on delivering collision repair trends, safety information and updates on electric vehicles, alternative-fuel vehicles, and those equipped with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
Highlights of the program include presentations from 3M, Penske, Rivian, TEXA, PACCAR, NGVAmerica, Women in Trucking, I-CAR, Ron Kuehn and many other collision industry leaders and repair experts. The goal of the event is to bring together the leadership in the industry to drive change and prepare for the future. Attendees include executives representing collision repair facilities (shop owners and managers), OEMs, insurance companies, independent appraisal firms, component and equipment manufacturers, service and equipment providers, as well as educators.
Networking opportunities are available throughout the event and include an evening reception at the close of day one offering those in attendance an opportunity to meet with peers and colleagues.
