AutoVitals To Hold The Digital Shop Online Summit

The Digital Shop Online Summit will replicate the trade show experience, with panel discussions, breakouts and networking events.

AutoVitals announced today The Digital Shop Online Summit – a collaborative industry event designed to help shops better prepare for the uncharted waters ahead. Taking place online Wednesday March, 25th from 8:30a.m. – 3 p.m. PT, The Digital Shop Online Summit will replicate the trade show experience, giving attendees the opportunity to attend panel discussions, breakouts and networking events to openly discuss shop strategies and methods with their peers. 

“Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve heard from numerous shops and partners that the postponement and cancellation of conferences and trade shows would leave a massive void in the industry, and during a time when folks really need help figuring out how to navigate the next few months. AutoVitals is steadfast in its belief that the health and safety of our families and communities need to be our top priority during these unsteady times,” said Jon Belmonte, CEO. “We also feel strongly that collaboration, education, and forward progress must remain a priority, perhaps now more than ever, to preserve the health of the industry.”

Some of the topics to be covered and discussed include:

  • Where shops are finding success
  • Managing your team and expenses
  • Effective communication with your customers
  • Labor inventory and workflow management strategies
  • The power of mentorship and coaching
  • New products hitting the market in 2020

The Digital Shop Online Summit is free and participants may attend as many of the sessions as they please – an open-door policy in a time where those can be hard to find. You can find more information and register at

“AutoVitals has always been a leader when it comes to industry best practices and helping shops thrive in good times and bad,” said AutoVitals Founder Uwe Kleinschmidt. “A huge part of developing our innovative methods has been intense collaboration with shops and their staffs. What better way to make the most of these uncertain circumstances than to gather as peers and work together to grow as individuals and an industry.”
