The HD Repair Forum (HDRF) announced Wednesday it will hold an in-person event this fall in conjunction with the North American Commercial Vehicle Show (NACV Show). The event will be held Sept. 27-28, in Atlanta.
'This is the first time our event will be held in the Fall. It will not replace our Spring event, scheduled for April 2022 in Fort Worth, Texas, but it will be the first time for us to gather in more than a year," says Brian Nessen, HDRF president and co-founder. "Based upon the feedback from our advisory board and industry leadership, the HDRF will now be a biannual event."
As a result of co-locating with the NACV Show, HDRF says event attendees and supporters will have an opportunity to attend the NACV Show exhibit floor, see the latest in new vehicle technology and explore additional business opportunities with leaders in the medium-duty and heavy-duty fleet industry.
"The HD Repair Forum serves all of the stakeholders in the heavy-duty collision repair industry. We are continually seeking ways to deliver more value and our collaboration with the NACV Show delivers upon that commitment," says Jennie Link, HDRF communications director.
The NACV Show focuses on the needs of fleet owners, managers and decision makers, and is North America’s largest and most comprehensive commercial vehicle trade show for fleets.
The HDRF plans to announce a schedule of events and speakers in the coming weeks. Registration will follow soon thereafter.
