The Collision Industry Conference kicks off today, and you can follow all the action with it and the Society of Collision Repair Specialists events this morning through Repairer Driven News’ update feed.
Check out our steady stream of Twitter updates with the widget at the end of the article (works best on a laptop, but also works on smartphones and tablet browsers). Join in the conversation with #cicatlanta.
This morning, an SCRS Repairer Roundtable from 8:30-11 a.m. will offer a panel focusing on safety and best practices in an era of changing auto materials.
Chief Automotive Technologies global training manager Ken Boylan, Reliable Automotive Equipment President Dave Gruskos and I-CAR industry technical support manager Steve Marks will delve into preparatory steps repairers need to consider as vehicles — and the associated repairs — evolve.
This is especially timely in light of announcements such as Kia hyping a predominately high-strength steel 2016 Kia Optima at the New York International Auto Show.
