CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts is touting its annual conference as “the collision repair industry’s largest MSO network event.”
The conference is scheduled for Aug. 22-25 in Charlotte, home of Driven Brands, which acquired CARSTAR in 2015.
Themed the “1NE CARSTAR,” this year’s CARSTAR Conference will take place at the Westin Hotel in Charlotte as well as the Charlotte Motor Speedway. It will open with a dinner and its annual awards presentation to recognize the top-performing franchisees. Then the event will shift gears to focus on strategic planning, management and technical education sessions, panel discussions, vendor partner networking events, motivational speakers and an insurance industry forum.
“Over the past year, CARSTAR has expanded its presence as the most dynamic company in the collision industry,” said Michael Macaluso, president of CARSTAR North America. “Our conference will reflect this with an event where store owners, business leaders, vendor partners and insurance companies come together to help build the collective industry for the future.
