IBIS announces its 2021 conference programme

IBIS (International Bodyshop Industry Symposium) is delighted to announce its list of 2021 conferences aimed at bringing exemplary thought leadership content and peer-to-peer networking opportunities to the leaders of the global automotive collision repair industry.

The dynamic programme capitalises on executing a series of its globally renowned physical events from June through to November.

IBIS CEO Jason Moseley said: “We’ve been overwhelmed this year by the continued support of our partners and our loyal delegates who have been with us throughout as we embarked on our new digital strategy. 

However, the second half of 2021 is the time to be bold and return to face-to-face delivery. We know that the global auto collision repair industry looks to us to provide world-class physical, peer-to-peer networking opportunities, and that’s exactly what we plan to do.”

The first physical IBIS will be the 2021 Global Summit which will take place at Le Méridien in Monaco from 9 to 11 June. It will be a continuation of yesterday’s highly acclaimed IBISTV Global Summit which began the celebration of 20 years of IBIS. 

Then come the IBIS regional conferences. IBIS Africa in Johannesburg on 7 July. IBIS USA – an exclusive, ‘by invitation only’ event in Jacksonville, Florida from 1 to 3 September. IBIS Turkey in Istanbul on 6 October. IBIS Middle East in Dubai on 10 November. In addition, there will be a continuation of IBISConnect with a second Latin America simulcast planned for 18 May.

Further communications on the theme, content and speakers for each conference will appear on the IBIS Worldwide website and social media feeds over the coming weeks.
