The IBIS Global Summit 2016 will focus on change throughout the collision repair industry as it heads to a brand new venue in a familiar location.

The Hilton Diagonal Mar Barcelona, Spain, will host more than 350 delegates representing every major territory around the world for the IBIS Global Summit on 23-25 May 2016. Barcelona is a familiar city for IBIS delegates and the Hilton Diagonal Mar Barcelona will appeal to international automotive executives who wish to learn, network and develop in a professional environment.

The Global Summit is largest event in the annual IBIS calendar, bringing together all sides of the collision repair market to share knowledge, build relationships and shape the future of the industry. The industry influencers know that by attending the IBIS Global Summit they are positioning themselves as leaders in their field on an international scale, ahead of the competition.

Official IBIS partners are supplying and supporting the collision repair industry around the world. IBIS is delighted to announce the continued support from 3M, AkzoNobel, Audatex, EMM, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Fix Auto World who are all contributing to a brighter future for our industry.
