The International Bodyshop Industry Symposium (IBIS) conference is being held February 13-15 at the Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa in California.
“We are excited to support this world-class conference by sponsoring IBIS USA as a Titanium Partner,” said Osvaldo Bergaglio, president and CEO of Symach. “As long-time attendees of IBIS events, we have great respect for the organization and how it brings together collision repair influencers from around the world to raise the safety, skills and standards in all sectors and markets.”
Since Bergaglio established Symach in 2001, the Italian-based company has developed a complete range of equipment for collision repair centers and designs, installs and trains new body shops around the world. Symach’s “FixLine” repair process was created to drastically reduce cycle time. It utilizes the Symach Paint Application Process (SPA) and the company’s revolutionary Drytronic drying technology, which allows automotive paint to cure in less than one minute.
Founded in 2001, IBIS is a global collision repair conference provider offering high-level information and market analysis; a forum for high-level debate; the discussion of innovative approaches to industry problems; and networking opportunities.
The USA event in February is expected to draw more than 200 delegates in the collision repair industry worldwide.
IBIS said that this year’s theme emphasizes the seizing of opportunities for the collision market that have arisen through such themes as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), InsurerTech, new skills needed and OEM programs. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear presentations about risk management for the automotive industry, the future of auto insurance claims and the elements to a successful OEM collision repair program.
