Katy, Texas, January 26, 2022 – Plans for the 2022 HD Repair Forum’s spring conference have been confirmed. The 2022 event is scheduled for April 5th-6th at the historic Hilton in downtown Fort Worth, TexasRegistration is now open and sponsorship opportunities are already being booked. 

“The HD Repair Forum brings together the stakeholders of the heavy- & medium-duty collision repair industry to provide attendees the opportunity to discuss trends, address industry challenges, and evaluate key business strategies.” explains Brian Nessen, President of the HD Repair Forum. 

The 2021 annual event was co-located with the ATA’s Technology Maintenance Council’s fall event and helped reach an even larger group of industry influencers. With the guidance of its advisory board members and constituents, the HD Repair Forum continues to address the needs of the industry. A few highlights from the 2021 event included presentations from Daimler, Bendix, RVTI, IMMI, 3M and several others. 

Session topics for the upcoming spring event will address a myriad of industry issues such as expanding needs to repair advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), including scanning and calibration, the infrastructure needs of repair facilities for repairs to electric and alternatively-fueled vehicles, insurance relations, ongoing parts challenges, staffing issues, and solutions for improvement in industry collaboration. 

Extensive networking opportunities allowing shop owners, insurers, appraisers, OEMs, paint manufacturers, information providers, and equipment and service companies to build relationships, conduct business, and solve problems are a key focus for this two-day event. 

Companies interested in having a presence at the HD Repair Forum are encouraged to book now as sponsorships are limited. More information can be found on the sponsorship page of the website. Companies interested in sponsoring, getting more involved with this industry, or even hosting a co-located event can send inquiries to Brian Nessen BrianN@hdrepalrforum.com or Jennie Lenk JennieL@hdrepairforum.com
