3M Automotive Aftermarket Division becomes IBIS (International Bodyshop Industry Symposium) Headline Partner
It’s with pleasure that IBIS can announce that 3M Gulf has become a headline sponsor for IBIS Middle East (IBIS ME) 2020. The one-day conference will take place at Le Méridien Hotel & Conference Centre in Dubai on 12 February 2020.
Since 1902, when 3M invented the first sanding abrasives, 3M has pioneered with a succession of technologies which today enable professionals in the collision repair industry to optimize their solutions with trust and confidence. The 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division delivers technologies that guarantee vehicles continue to look ‘showroom new’.
In concluding the IBIS-3M partnership, Jason Moseley CEO IBIS Worldwide said, “I’m delighted that our relationship is going from strength to strength. As global partners, we’ve already worked together successfully on IBIS conferences in the Middle East before. We look forward to this further collaborative venture in 2020.”
Kyriaki Haniotou, Sales & Marketing Manager for 3M Automotive After Market Division of Middle East and Africa said of the partnership, “IBIS ME is esteemed as one of the ‘must-attend’ events in the collision repair market. IBIS’s advocacy for safety, skills, and standards resonates very well with 3M’s value proposition to the automotive industry. The event provides key stakeholders with very relevant insights into the current Middle Eastern market and a forward-looking glimpse into technologies to match the new trends”.
Over and above IBIS ME, in 2019 IBIS expanded its innovative programme in the region with the introduction of ‘Meeting of Minds’, an industry round table in the United Arab Emirates. It aims to continue the constructive discussions of the last IBIS ME and drive the right action points to the key issues discussed.
