The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) announced the introduction of a new event on Friday, Nov. 2 during the 2018 SEMA Show.
The IDEAS Collide Showcase (IDEAS Collide), Visionary Disruption and Solution in the Collision Repair Industry will be an extension of the association’s ever-evolving Repairer Driven Education series. The two-hour long session will run from 10 a.m.--noon and feature 10 fast-paced presentations designed to stimulate thought, innovation and resolution of business challenges with brash, outspoken and thought-provoking concepts from thought leaders both in and out of the industry.
IDEAS Collide is the perfect place for captivating individuals, concept-driven startups or tenured companies with an eye on the future to take center stage and present innovative ideas, business models and concepts that have the potential to revolutionize the future of the collision repair industry.
SCRS wants to explore concepts and business solutions that have the potential to create paradigm shifts in the businesses we serve. Proposed concepts should focus on either Industry Disruption or Industry Solution:
Industry Disruption will rattle the status quo with ambitious ideas that have a transformative effect on the industry. From conceptual alternatives to existing business models, technological advancements that will shake up the automotive aftermarket landscape to changing the consumer expectation of what is possible---this segment is certain to leave heads spinning with possibility.
Industry Solutions will offer conceptual keys to resolving existing market challenges, business considerations, resources and solutions that stem from, or can be implemented by, great minds within the industry.
SCRS is accepting applications from thought leaders through July 31.
Presentations for the IDEAS Collide Showcase will be based on the submission of the completed entry information and a five-minute (or less) video pitch of your idea.
