IBIS sets out its exciting two-year events roadmap

In 2020, face-to-face IBIS (International Bodyshop Industry Symposium) conferences made way for a new and exciting era of live broadcasts streamed direct to its audience via its bespoke interactive event platform. Throughout the year, IBIS brought together the global collision industry safely, efficiently and innovatively through the power of connecting online. 

In 2021, IBIS plans to consolidate the success of these broadcasts with a new schedule of digitally delivered conferences. At their heart will the same world class, unique and thought-provoking content we’ve always delivered – wrapped up in high production presentations, panel debates, interviews, Q&A and live polling.

IBIS CEO Jason Moseley said: “2022 will herald a return to the power of face-to-face networking and relationship building as this year’s digital pathway leads the IBIS community forward to our highly regarded physical conference programme next year.”
