“The IDEAS Collide Showcase was really to take an approach similar to TED Talks, but with the SCRS twist of being specific to the collision repair industry,” shares SCRS Vice Chairman Brett Bailey. “We introduced it by calling for speakers that were willing to explore big ideas worthy of consideration, but capable of delivering those ideas in a condensed timeframe.”
 
The 2-hour program will tackle topics that either highlight disruption or provide solution in the Collision Repair Industry. Ten speakers will deliver fast-paced presentations designed to stimulate thought, innovation and resolution of business challenges with brash, outspoken and thought-provoking concepts. The lineup includes:

“So much of the Repairer Driven Education program was built with a preference for concepts that gave collision repair facilities tangible solutions, with practical applications in their business,” added SCRS Chairman Kye Yeung. “The IDEAS Collide Showcase was really seen as a way to break away from what is, and explore what might be. We challenged out speakers to come with innovative ideas, business models and concepts that have the potential to revolutionize the future of the collision repair industry. I know we are all really excited to see how a session like this will develop.”
