IBIS, the world’s leading collision repair conference, is heading for Germany in June 2018. This annual event will be full of world class content and excellent networking opportunities, providing the perfect platform for knowledge sharing.

Taking place at The Hilton, Munich Park, the two-day conference will bring together leaders of the automotive repair industry to discuss industry challenges and work collaboratively towards long term solutions.

IBIS 2018 is set to be a huge success, with the notion of innovation within tradition at the forefront of the content delivered. The IBIS team are delighted to announce that Axalta are the latest to add to an impressive and influential list of industry leaders partnering with them in 2018.  Axalta will be joining 3M, AkzoNobel, Audatex, Enterprise-Rent-A-Car, Fix Auto World and Symach to support the event, working together to create a brighter future for the industry.

Once again supporting the IBIS Global Summit is IBIS US market advisor, Sean Carey of SCG Management Consultants. “I am delighted to once again be a part of the IBIS Global Summit in 2018 and thrilled that we are heading to the great city of Munich, Germany,” said Sean. “The symposium is shaping up to be one of the best we’ve had and the theme ‘Challenging Perspectives’ could not be more appropriate in today’s ever evolving claims and collision repair environment.  I believe we will see more change in the next three years than we have in the past 20 years in terms of vehicle and claims technology. IBIS provides an insight into those changes, a perspective if you will, that could provide a competitive advantage for attendees across all segments of the claims and collision ecosystem.”

A full agenda will be revealed over the coming weeks and is dependent on the very latest topical challenges in the market. Issues such as the skills gap, the future of consumer experience and the technology of tomorrow are sure to be hot topics, sparking debate amongst industry giants.

Tickets are priced at £1885 and includes the following: access to the Welcome Reception on 11 June; the full day conference, including lunch and refreshments; followed by the International Dinner on the evening of the 12 June. The event will finish on the 13 June, after a half day conference and an inclusive lunch. After the event, all attendees will be sent a link to download audio and visual presentations for future reference. The price also includes two nights’ accommodation (11 and 12 June) at The Hilton, Munich Park.

Packed full of topical seminars, influential speakers and countless networking opportunities, this is a unique opportunity for attendees to develop new and existing relationships with likeminded individuals from across the globe.

Since its inception in 2001, IBIS – the International Bodyshop Industry Symposium – has become firmly established as the leading global conference and networking provider for collision industry leaders and influencers.
