Early Bird Pricing for Repairer Driven Education and SEMA Show Registration Available Through October 17th

By on

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) encourages collision repair facilities to take advantage of the great discounts available to SEMA Show attendees who register by Friday, October 17th. SCRS’ Repairer Driven Education series and entrance into the SEMA Show all increase to full-price after the October 17th cutoff in just three short weeks. In addition to the great financial savings that come with early registration, attendees will also receive the added benefit of receiving their Show badges and course selection tickets in the mail prior to the Show. This reduces time in lines and at registration, increasing time on the show floor and in educational programs once onsite.

This year marks the 5th consecutive year that SCRS has offered their acclaimed educational series at the SEMA Show dedicated to the collision repair market. Each year the program has seen remarkable gains in attendance and participation, and continual developments in program additions. This year, one of the most notable developments has been the addition of the OEM Collision Repair Technology Summit being featured all day Wednesday. More information about all of the SCRS programs can be found online by

“We’ve worked hard to develop really unique educational opportunities each year that vary with the changing trends in the marketplace,” shared SCRS Chairman Ron Reichen. “I think one of the most consistent elements of the program is the emphatically positive response we’ve received from the participants, and the growth in attendance that we’ve seen each year! It’s been really rewarding to watch it grow and to have a platform like this which so perfectly supports our mission to educate, inform and represent the industry.”
