August 8 – 10th is the time to work on your business and Atlanta is the place!

The 2018 Business Development Summit in Atlanta is an assembly of leading Collision Repair Business Development experts and entities focused on your business success. The focus of this exclusive three-day event is on helping collision repair businesses like yours gain the knowledge and mastery of critical business methods and practices essential to dominate in today’s rapidly evolving market.

This event is different than anything you have ever attended. The agenda and content are driven by attendee needs. Certified Repair Provider Delegates and industry experts selected from across North America share the key challenges facing Repair Providers. These challenges will be addressed through a series of presentations, demonstrations, and panel discussions.

Attendees will gain insight into the latest industry trends, growth and profit strategies, and take a deep dive into Assured Performance’s “20/20 Management By Numbers” and the 5-Star Business Performance. The summit will also introduce special consumer marketing/sales programs and the hidden linkage between vehicle owners, dealers, and the OEM and Certified repair providers through advanced technology. Workshop topics will also touch on repair quality assurance and how to protect your business from litigation like John Eagle.
