Vancouver, British Columbia — Today is the first day of the two-day long CCIF Vancouver forum at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel, and registration is still open at the time of publication.
Packed with presentations from Axalta, Simplicity Car Care, Enterprise Holdings, as well as a talk from frequent Collision Repair contributor, Stefano Liessi, CCIF Vancouver is a triumphant return to form for the ever-popular automotive trade show.
Today begins with a limited-access workshop, followed by a networking reception, before heading into a Friday full of high-level industry insights from former CCIF chair and customer experience director at Axalta, Patrice Marcil, as well as his successor in the CCIF chair role and CEO of Simplicity Car Care, Paul Prochilo.
The opening night workshop, “Using Continuous Improvement to Manage Change in today’s Collision Industry,” is free, but requires a reservation to attend. It will be run by Scott Wheeler and Mark Nelson from Axalta and will cover a number of topics concerning body shop efficiency and staff management.
