Story by MAX REID and LISA MCNAB

Gone as quickly as it came, the 2021 SAAR Fall Conference is officially in the books as the hottest ticket in the prairies drew in more than 200 attendees at its peak. Held from September 9 through 11, SAAR kicked off the fall conference with a golf tournament comprised of 72 attendees and was followed by a dinner and presentation from Lloyd and Sandy Giles, a pair of Saskatchewan collision repair fixtures who announced their retirement from the industry after 50 years earlier this year.

Dave Luehr and Don Pogoda led the charge on Friday, delivering a morning full of industry insights and hot tips for keeping bodyshops running at peak performance.

Saturday closed off the event with even more presentations from industry-leading figures like AIA Executive Board chairman Bob Jaworski, as well as talks from 3M, SunLife Financial, Sask Polytech and others.

SGI held its annual Town Hall at the Fall Conference: Ryan Smith explained SGI’s overall plans moving forward while Ciaran Downes and Jessica Hill Flaman spoke in more detail about the issues. Downes talked about the appraisal and technical side while Flaman focused on the adjuster side of the relationship.

Tom Bissonnette, director of SAAR, served as gracious host once again.

According to SAAR’s stats, 200 people attend the Friday Trade Show and about 160 people at the Saturday morning SGI presentation
