Fix Auto USA Kicks Off 2022 Fix Auto Conference

The conference is being held Oct. 2-4 at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in Coronado Bay, California.

After a two-year hiatus, more than 300 Fix Auto USA franchise partners, vendors, corporate team and collision industry leaders gathered Sunday to kick off the 2022 Fix Auto conference at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort near San Diego.

The conference began with a charity walk along the beautiful Silver Strand Beach to benefit the Tim Clark Memorial Scholarship. This walk alone raised more than $3,500. Following the walk, attendees had the opportunity to spend time with each other and compete in beach games. The opening ceremonies took place on Sunday evening on the Bay Terrace overlooking the spectacular Coronado Bay, and attendees had an opportunity to re-connect with their colleagues and franchise family.

“We are so excited to be back together as a family at the Fix Auto USA conference,” said Sabrina Thring, U.S. collision chief operating officer, Driven Brands. “The energy here is amazing. From our charity walk to our opening ceremony, you can feel the enthusiasm for what is ahead, and we’re eager to build on this momentum heading into tomorrow.”

Monday and Tuesday of the 2022 Fix Auto conference will feature an agenda packed with education, thoughtful discussions and networking opportunities. Most importantly, the Fix Auto USA team will celebrate all that the organization has achieved in 2022 so far.
