The Washington Metropolitan Auto Body Association (WMABA) Collision P.R.E.P. education event, serving the East coast collision repair industry, will once again be at the spring NORTHEAST® Automotive Services Show, March 15-17 in Secaucus, New Jersey. The event is now announcing the open window for speakers to submit their presentations for consideration in the educational line-up.
Last Spring, the Collision P.R.E.P. – short for Professional Repairer Education Program – blew all expectations out of the water by having a full slate of nationally recognized speakers which led to the fantastic turnout by repairers. Hoping to continue to grow and bring leading edge topics that are relevant to repair industry advancements, the event is asking for submissions by leaders in the industry.
Collision P.R.E.P. will follow the format of seminar presentations, as well as organized panel discussions. The focus will be on relevant and timely information that addresses issues that collision repairers are currently facing.
