Organizers of the upcoming HD Repair Forum say the sixth annual event will achieve the largest audience since its inception.

Set for April 24-25 in Frisco, Texas, the HD Repair Forum will feature speakers from Peterbilt, MHC Kenworth, Rivian, and the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA).

“Participation from the manufacturers continues to be one of the most important components of the HD Repair Forum,” says Brian Nessen, HD Repair Forum president. “Our attendees need more interaction with commercial, recreational, and emergency vehicle manufacturers in order to prepare for the latest technology, whether they are repairers, insurance providers, or suppliers to the industry.”

Additionally, the second day of the program will feature OSHA's Deputy, Stephen Boyd, who will share insight on industry-related rules, regulations and best practices. Spark Underwriters, David Willett will also take the stage Thursday and will address workman’s compensation and the rising cost of business insurance. Collision repairers can expect actionable information that may help lower costs and improve their businesses.

As in years past, the HD Repair Forum’s conference agenda and speaker line-up are a direct result of the input provided by the organization’s advisory board.

“This is the only event solely dedicated to the needs of my business and the heavy- and medium-duty collision repair industry. This is a can’t-miss event for the leaders in the industry whether you are a collision repairer, insurer, truck manufacturer or vendor supporting the industry,” says Jamie Cole, president of Ace Truck Body & Trailer Repair and event advisory board member.

The complete event agenda, including educational breakout sessions can be found on the event website.
