Registration for MSO Symposium’s 12th Annual Event is Now Open

North Richland Hills, Texas, August 16, 2023 – Advisory board members and administrators of the MSO Symposium announced that registration for the 12th annual meeting is now open.

The symposium, designed for collision repair facility owners, executives, and industry leaders, will take place at the Mirage Convention Center in Las Vegas, Monday, October 30th, prior to the start of SEMA/AAPEX. 

The one-day conference will begin at 9 a.m. PDT with a light breakfast and networking. The unique program will provide information and insight on the economy, financial and investment opportunities, and new vehicle and new technology repair adaptations. The conference will conclude at 7 p.m., after a networking reception. Those interested in attending should register their teams as soon as possible as seating is limited. Early registration discounts are available through the end of the month.

“The MSO Symposium is truly unique,” states Shawn Hezar, Chief Client Officer at Caliber Collision Centers and MSO Symposium advisory board member. “The event’s natural evolution includes conversations that are impacting small to mid-size MSOs and independent repair facilities, not just the large MSOs,” he continues. “This segment of the collision repair space continues to expand and so does the reach of these important topics.” 

This year, conversations on shop specialization, labor acquisition and retention, and anticipated shifts in the economy will be in focus. Accompanying discussions will include insurance relations, the industry’s growth trends and expectations, as well as what repair facility owners can expect to prepare their business for next. 

“If you are looking at the next steps in expansion or how to position your business for growth in a rapidly changing environment, this is a must attend event for you and your team’s leadership.” Hezar concludes. 

Please be advised that this is a closed meeting and attendance requirements for the MSO Symposium are in place. To qualify, you must be an executive or owner of a multi-shop operation, single location repair facilities with revenue exceeding $3 million in annual sales, or a representative from an insurance company or OEM.
