World class content for IBIS 2016

The IBIS Global Summit 2016 – 23-25 May at the Hilton Diagonal Mar in Barcelona – will build on the success of 2015, delivering world class presentations and industry leading information.

IBIS will continue to advocate a global need for safety, skills and standards – the three pillars at the core of the IBIS principles, which inform everything that makes up the global collision repair industry’s leading event.

After a successful pilot at the 2015 Global Summit, three roundtable discussions will precede 2016’s conference giving a chance for insurers, vehicle manufacturers and multi-site collision repairers to discuss our industry, each group led by an IBIS Board member. The findings, while anonymous, will feed into a Day 2 session – giving delegates a chance to hear the very latest information from three key sectors of the market.

IBIS is also delighted to announce that David Smith, VP supply chain/procurement at US collision repair chain Caliber, will be discussing the MSO’s journey to becoming a $1.3 billion organisation and how such a business makes buying decisions. Every area of our industry could benefit from this session, which is sure to be inspirational as well informative.

IBIS is possible thanks to the support of its partners: 3M, AkzoNobel, Audatex, EMM, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Fix Auto World, as well as the delegates who continue to take advantage of the huge business opportunities that IBIS creates.

The early bird booking rate of £1,745 is available until 18 December and includes full access to the Welcome Reception on 23 May; access to the full day’s conference, including lunch and breaks, on 24 May; the International Dinner on the evening of 24 May; as well as the final half day’s conference and delegates’ lunch on 25 May. The price also includes two nights’ accommodation (23 and 24 May) at the Hilton Diagonal Mar.
