Toronto, Ontario — The International Bodyshop Industry Symposium (IBIS) Global Summit 2020 had originally been scheduled for June 8 through June 10, though the event has been rescheduled for November 19 and 20 at Le Méridien in Monaco.
As they prepare for the event, IBIS will be showcasing its relationship with a number of its IBIS Global Summit partners, starting with 3M.
IBIS’s position globally as the glue that binds together all corners of the auto collision repair industry is only made possible through the tremendous partnerships it has forged, says IBIS.
The first “partner in the spotlight” is 3M whose relationship with IBIS goes back more than a decade.
IBIS CEO, Jason Moseley summed up the IBIS-3M global agreement in an online news release as one that “allows 3M and IBIS to work together internationally to help raise knowledge levels, promote thought leadership, network, and invest in skills and training for bodyshops around the world.”
David Schneider, global director for 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division, said in an online release the relationship is “about giving something back to our industry through awareness on employee attraction and retention.”
In an interview with Moseley, available to watch at www.ibisworldwide.com, Schneider said: “It’s also about bringing the right players and customers together to share best practices or processes and tackle tough questions as the cars that the technicians repair continues to evolve.”
In the interview, the pair explored many topics starting with 3M’s focus on innovation. David speaks about the 3M™ PPS™ Series 2.0 disposable paint cup system, 3M’s blue abrasive family and 3M’s Perfect-It™ One-Step polish.
They also discussed new product innovation, 3M’s hard work to produce much-needed PPE during the global pandemic as well as sustainability before turning their attention to their desire to encourage and enable young people to enter our industry.
