STRENGTH IN NUMBERS

The Midwest Collision Repair Trade Show was a hit year after year, but now, pooling the resources of five active state associations we expect it to be at least five times better than in the past. Come work ON your business at this exclusive trade show held in the middle of the heartland.

WHY PARTICIPATE?

Other successful trade shows are far away, Vegas, New Jersey, Texas. The Midwest Collision Repair Trade Show is right here in our back yard in the easy to get to, wonderful destination of Kansas City and Overland Park. Top vendors are investing heavily to be there to answer questions and meet your needs. National iconic presenters will add wisdom and knowledge you won’t get anywhere else. Your business needs you to be here.

WORKING ON YOUR BUSINESS, NOT IN IT

The must-read book “The E-Myth” focused on the fact that most small business owners and managers work IN their businesses when then really should spend more time working ON them. Escape the walls of your business, rub elbows with your peers and learn from top vendors and presenters. Then, return home enriched to apply what you have learned in your day to day operations.
