Rocky Mountain Trade Show Postponed Until August

The Rocky Mountain Trade Show has been postponed until Aug. 28 through Aug. 30, the Montana Collision Repair Association (MCRA) Board announced.

MCRA, which hosts the show in Billings, MT, has been closely following the progress related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus.) Upon reflection and review it was decided that, following the Center for Disease Control’s recommendations, the best course of action is to postpone the trade show, out of the concern for the health and safety of attendees, speakers and vendors.
MCRA apologizes for the inconvenience this may have caused. We have been made aware many airlines are not charging cancelation fees, due to the current concerns surrounding the coronavirus.


We have also been in touch with the Billings Hotel and Convention Center. They are happy to allow us the opportunity to reschedule the trade show. Anyone who needs assistance in rescheduling room reservations should call the hotel at 406-248-7151.
As always it is the MCRA’s goal to advocate for the education development and professional growth of Montana collision repairers. With that said the safety and health of anyone who attends our events is of our utmost concern. We look forward to having you join us for the Rocky Mountain Trade Show, Aug. 28th through Aug. 30.
The MCRA is very grateful for everyone's participation and support. We would not be able to make an impact within our industry without the support and generosity we receive from vendors.


It is the MCRA’s objective to put on a high caliber event for vendors and attendees. Unfortunately, we feel attendance for the trade show would be severely impacted with the current concerns surrounding the coronavirus.


At this point the format of the trade show will remain the same. As always, anyone with questions should reach out to Mariah Litton Sampson of American Auto Body at mariah@americanab.com and 406-655-0300.


Unless we are informed otherwise, we will plan to keep sponsors at their current sponsorship level.
